A People’s Democratic Party Chieftain, Fem Fani Kayode, has declared that the Yorubas must act now and defend its people.

Reaction via his Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode called on Gani Adams, the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, to rise to the occasion and make necessary consultations to organize the defense of the Yoruba people.

What he wrote:


I have just spoken to my brother Yinka Odumakin and he has confirmed to me that the daughter of our very own Baba Fasoranti, the leader of Afenifere, was slaughtered by Fulani herdsmen in Ore today. This is the final straw. The Yoruba MUST act NOW. We must defend our people!

I call on my brother, Aare Ona Kakanfo Gani Adams, who I just broke the news to and who is presently in Mali, to come home quickly, rise to the occasion and, in consultation with others, organize the defense of the Yoruba people and determine what our next line of action will be.

This incident is coming days after the Buhari-led administration suspended the proposed RUGA settlement programme for herdmen across the country.
