“These miscreants and hoodlums are not registered members of the great society,and that among them were some bad eggs who have been dismissed from  Agbekoya Farmers Society for thuggery behaviors and militancy, but are going about to destroy and dent the image and integrity of our group especially in the Southwest” he said.
Chief Bandele added “these people are miscreants and hoodlums who are not registered members of Agbekoya Farmers Society and who have teamed up with some bad eggs who were dismissed from our Society for thuggery behaviors and militancy and are bent on destroying and denting the image and integrity of our group”.
“These people were reported to the Inspector General of Police through a petition dated 30th September, 2015 and which was copied the Director General of the Department of State Security Services, Headquarters, Abuja, the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone II, Osogbo, and the Commissioner of Police of Oyo State.
“Agbekoya Farmers Society is a registered corporate organization registered with Corporate Affairs Commission since 2012 with Certificate No, CAC/IT/NO.51134, with a mission to practice commercial and mechanized farming in Nigeria”.
