OPC is ready to offer intelligence report, physical and technical supports to the governors in addressing the menace of herdsmen attacks and killings in the region__Aare Gani Adams
Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, has warned criminal herdsmen in the South-West to stay away from the region or face the wrath of the Oodua Peoples Congress.

He said that information available to him showed that criminal herdsmen have migrated from Oyo State to Ogun.

He said this in a statement to react to the recent encroachment of Professor Wole Soyinka’s Ijegba residence by herders, titled, “Soyinka: Adams Warns criminal herdsmen to stay away from southwest’, on Thursday.

In the statement signed by Kehinde Aderemi, his Special Assistant on Media, Adams said the manner of the encroachment was a threat to the privacy of the Nobel laureate.

The statement quoted Adams as lamenting that the recent developments and reports made available to him across the South-West have 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”.

The Yoruba generalissimo also wondered why the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has been complacent with the growing spate of insecurity across the South-West, declaring that activities of criminal herdsmen are “worrisome and very unbearable”.

“We thank God that the recent encroachment on Prof’s residence failed. Professor 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 added.

The Aare Onakakanfo also urged the South-West governors to boost the recruitment of OPC, Vigilante, and Hunters in the South-West security Network better known as Amotekun to strengthen the security outfit in the region. 

“OPC is ready to offer intelligence report, physical and technical supports to the governors in addressing the menace of herdsmen attacks and killings in the region,” he added.

Adams also advised the South-West governors to reinforce the region with the recruitments of Amotekun personnel, especially, to palaces and homes of prominent people and personalities living in the rural areas and communities across the region.

This, he said, would help to “reduce the illegal influx of criminal herdsmen and put a stop to the threats to individuals’ lives and property.

“There are reports of some people that were using soldiers to threaten the natives of some communities in Ogun and Ondo states for dislodging illegal herders in their respective communities. The chief of army staff should investigate the reports and bring those behind the reports to book.
