National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Otunba Gani Adams, has described the killing of the Yoruba in some Lagos and Ogun communities by suspected militants as unfortunate.
While noting that the OPC has the capacity to repel the attackers, Mr. Adams said the organization will not confront them.
Speaking in Lagos at the weekend, he said the attacks have brought to the fore the sad reality of a major threat to the people of the South West.
Condemning the wanton killings and destruction of property, the OPC leader said: “We are still talking about the menace of herdsmen and some hoodlums masquerading as kidnappers or militants started to kill our people to the extent that the Ogun State deputy governor came to the area and they chased the security of the deputy governor and the police could not do anything. The law enforcement agents should tell the whole world how many of the criminals that they have arrested after more than 50 people have been massacred”.
Assuring that the group has the wherewithal to stop the hoodlums in their track, Mr. Adams called on leaders from the South West to support the OPC to fight for their interest.
