Insecurity: Monarch Urges Yoruba Subjects to Shut Their Doors to Foreigners

Following the state of insecurity in the country, the hospitality for which Yorubas are known might begin to wane as everybody is now being very cautious in order to protect their lives and property. It is against this background that a prominent Yoruba monarch, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has instructed his subjects not to entertain foreigners in their midst anymore.

According to the monarch, in a statement he made in his palace during a courtesy visit by the Controller, Oyo State Command of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), he said that he had sent his kingmakers, Oyomesi, to all towns and villages under his jurisdiction to educate farmers not to harbour foreigners owing to the insecurity in the country.

The monarch said: “We in Oyo have condemned child-trafficking and the employment of foreigners as housemaids because of the menace constituted to our people. Our people are either killed or had their belongings stolen, while the foreigners run away.”

Addressing the state immigration boss, Mr. Joseph Olaitan, the monarch said: “Before your arrival, I have ordered the ‘Oyomesi’ to go round the villages to educate the farmers not to harbour foreigners and I want to urge all the local government chairmen in the state to include security agents expenditure in their yearly budgets to be able to render quality assistance to the various agencies.” He then noted that the old Oyo Empire which existed for over 600 years lasted long because it maintained peace and security.
