The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, has warned that the region may go offensive over thekilling of Funke Olakunrin, daughter of the leader of Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.
Adams, who is the leader of Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), described Olakunrin’s killing by suspected herdsmen in Ondo State as one too many “by Fulanis who are invading the South West in their numbers and perpetrating atrocities”.
In a statement by his media assistant, Kehinde Aderemi, on Saturday, the Aare Onakakanfo said the Yoruba race was not at a loss as to what to do to put a complete stop to the atrocities of the Fulani herdsmen.
Adams said the Yoruba race had met over a period of three weeks on the security threat to the people, calling on Governors of the South West States to ensure the conclusion of the Security Summit process.
He charged all traditional rulers to take bold steps to stamp out killings by Fulani herdsmen in their domains, adding that there should be a process of identifying visitors or new settlers in every community.
He commiserated with Pa Fasoranti, praying God to comfort him and his entire household.
He said: “Papa, this is a very trying time. But it is certain justice will come.”
