The Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Abiodun Ige Adams, has described the Arewa Consultative Forum and Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria as jokers.

 

The Generalissimo of Yorubaland spoke on Sunday against the backdrop of threats by the Northern groups and Herders Association to attack the South West in a reprisal mission.

 

Adams declared that any attempt by the North against the South West will fail.

Adams in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, expressed concern about the security situation in the South West, stating that threats of attack on the region can fuel further crisis in Ibarapa in Oyo State and Ondo State, where Governor Rotimi Akeredolu warned herders to stay off government forests, and will certainly affect the entire nation.

 

Adams stated further that the situation in the two states truly justified the huge security challenges perpetrated by herders, who had on several occasions kidnapped and killed many Yoruba in their various communities, adding that the Yoruba are too well aware of the looming crisis in the country.

 

The Yoruba generalissimo, however, maintained that he would not be stampeded into falling into a pre-arranged trap by the political elites.

 

He said: The apex organisation in the North and the herders association should watch their statements or face the wrath of the Yoruba nation.

 

 

 

By their inciting statements, the North are beating war drums.

 

“But we will resist any attempt by the north to turn our region to war zones and no amount of threat will stop us from securing our region from killer herdsmen.

 

“From my findings, what is playing out in the last three days, especially in the social media, it is evident that there are some enemies and political elements both within and outside our region are now using the bravery of Sunday Igboho as a coordinated attempt to soil my name, and also put my efforts in the past 28 years in the struggle to test.

 

“My silence in the last three days doesn’t portray me as a coward, but by virtue of my position as the Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland, I am bound by my conscience and conviction to act accordingly when the time is right.

 

“And I must also consult widely before taking any action.

 

“What Igboho said was not even as damaging to the sanctity of the nation than the call for civil war by the ACF and the Miyetti Allah put together.

 

“The killer herdsmen are the major problem, but sadly the Federal Government remains silent.

 

“There are reports that the Fulani herdsmen have, in the past five years, killed over 300 Yoruba people from different communities while several other people have been kidnapped with abductors paying several billions as ransom.”

 

Adams, however, warned the North to stay away from any attempt to cause mayhem in the South West, hence the situation could degenerate into further chaos that might affect the entire nation.

He said: “The Fulani, in their conqueror agenda since 1818 had caused a lot of damages to the South West.

 

“And it is clear that the South is their target.

 

“That is why anybody going against the the Fulani herdsmen automatically becomes their enemy.”

 

Adams urged traditional rulers, political establishment, investors and other sectors to be conscious and be well coordinated because it is now obvious that the South West has been infiltrated. pointing out that Nigeria’s case might not be like that of Rwanda.
