Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola has condemned the existence of a spurious spiritual psychiatric centre in Iwo, Osun State and warned against setting up of such unscrupulous healing and rehabilitation centre in any part of the state.

The governor who spoke through the Director, Bureau of Communication and Strategy, Office of the Governor, Semiu Okanlawon on Sunday lamented that the discovery of an illegal rehabilitation home along the Iwo-Osogbo Road was shocking and uncalled for.

Aregbesola frowned that with the efforts of the state government in taking care of the people with mental challenge in the state, no one has reason to set up any spurious spiritual psychiatric centre in Osun.

“Preliminary investigations have indicated that the person who claims to be in charge of this rehabilitation home; the entire environment of the location and other relevant factors have shown that this is unacceptable.”

“The government has moved fast to evacuate the emaciated mentally challenged persons who were found to be in different deplorable states of health to its facilities at the state hospital and rehabilitation home while the State Police Command continues with its full investigations.”

“This is therefore to state categorically that the Government of Osun will not permit the setting up and running of rehabilitation homes in any part of the state.


“As a government with a high sense of responsibility to its people, the State, through its Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare and Special Needs, has put in place a rehabilitation home that meets international standards. Anything short of this standard would therefore not be permitted.”
