Soyinka: Criminal Fulani herdsmen must leave Southwest – Gani Adams
February 12, 2021
Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, has warned criminal herdsmen in the Southwest to leave or face the wrath of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC).
He was reacting to the attack on Professor Wole Soyinka’s Ijegba residence by herders.
Adams, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, said the manner of the encroachment was largely a threat to the privacy of the Nobel laureate.
He lamented that recent developments, based on the reports available to him across southwest had shown that criminal herdsmen have migrated from Ibarapa, in Oyo State to Yewa in Ogun State, making the state prone to increasing spate of insecurity.
He wondered why President Muhammadu Buhari has been so complacent with the growing spate of insecurity across the southwest, declaring that activities of criminal Fulani herdsmen were worrisome and very unbearable.
“We thank God that the recent encroachment on Prof’s residence failed. Prof actually saw it coming but I think the fundamental problem in this country is that we have a president that seems to be complacent on serious issues. It is in our own interest to continue to raise our voices against the unprecedented threats to the southwest region,” he said.
Adams urged the southwest governors to boost the recruitment of OPC, vigilante and hunters in the southwest security Network better known as Amotekun, especially in Ondo state to further strengthen the security outfit in the region.
