Ooni: S/West is set to Kick Killer Herdsmen out
We keep hammering on the Fulani herdsmen trying to take over everywhere; it is the bad ones that we want to kick out and enough is enough; we will kick them out.
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has decried the high rate of crimes linked to Fulani herdsmen in the South-West geopolitical zone and declared that criminal elements among the herders in Yorubaland would soon be kicked out.
A statement by the spokesperson for the Ooni’s Palace, Moses Olafare, in Osogbo on Wednesday, said the royal father spoke while receiving the Emir of Borgu, Alhaji Muhammed Dantoro, in his palace in Ile-Ife on Wednesday.
Ooni Ogunwusi told his visitor that traditional institutions in Yorubaland had devised means through which the criminal elements among the Fulani herdsmen would be exposed and kicked out.
He, however, called for the cooperation of all stakeholders to end crimes linked to those he called enemies of the country.
The statement partly read, “We keep hammering on the Fulani herdsmen trying to take over everywhere; it is the bad ones that we want to kick out and enough is enough; we will kick them out and do justice to the peace and peaceful coexistence in our country.
“What has been happening in Yorubaland recently is alien to us. We will work towards bringing sanity to our communities; people should not live in fear but should have that freedom to move from one point to the other the way you all have moved freely for several hours driving from New Busa today all the way to Ife.
“Nigeria is our country and we are aware of all security issues confronting us. We know how everybody is panicking, it is about time for us to separate the wheat from the chaff.
