Gani Adams orders armed Herders to leave Southwest or face OPC wrath
√ Leave Southwest or face OPC – Gani Adams warns criminal herdsmen
Herders grazing within Southern Nigeria are apparently in the worst phase of the year following multiple orders demanding relocation from the region.
Despite the glaring warnings by leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Sunday Igboho, Oyo state-based human rights activist requesting the rampaging herdsmen leave host communities, another Yoruba leader issues yet another warning.
Iba Gani Adams, the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, said to have warned criminal herdsmen to leave Southwest immediately.
Adams stated that failure to work according to instruction would mean the armed herders entertain any wrath occasioned by the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC).
His reaction came after the criminals breached Professor Wole Soyinka’s Ijegba residence.
The Yoruba leader speaking through his spokesman on Thursday noted that trespassing into Soyinka’s residence was a threat to privacy.
Adams further revealed that information at his disposal indicates that marauding herdsmen have moved from Ibarapa in Oyo State to Yewa in Ogun State.
He pointed out the migration had escalated the spate of insecurity, noting that the continued accommodation of criminal herders has become unbearable.
He expressed shock why President Muhammadu Buhari appears silent over the continued security issues raging in the Southwest.
“We thank God that the recent encroachment on Prof’s residence failed. 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, however, urged governors of the region to improve the recruitment of OPC, Vigilante, and Hunters in Amotekun to expand the internal security architecture.
Adams also solicited to Government of Lagos to consider, as matter of urgency, the inauguration of Amotekun, adding that delay was dangerous.
