Boko Haram: Afenifere, OPC others blows hot, warns against purported invasion

Some Yoruba socio-political groups comprising Afenifere, Agbekoya and the Oodua Peoples Congress have reacted to alleged attempt by terrorist group, Book Haram to carry out attacks on Southwestern states, warning it to renege on such plans.

Their warning came in the wake of a widely circulated letter which stated that Boko Haram members planned to attack commercial banks in Ondo State; one of the six states in the South-West, on November 1.

Speaking on this, Spokesperson for for Afenifere, Mr Yinka Odumakin, observed there was an agenda behind Boko Haram as it had got to the level of issuing threats to Yorubaland.

He warned that no invader has been able to conquer Yoruba land, noting that the sect will regret any such attempt to attack the Yoruba states.

Also speaking, the Ondo State Coordinator of the OPC, Mr Victor Olayemi, said his group was ready to resist any form of external aggression.

He said, “We are battle-ready for anybody who wants to wage war against us in Yorubaland. We don’t want war in this land and we will resist any form of aggression against Yorubaland.’’

In his view, the farmers’ revolt group, Agbekoya, posited that the alleged effrontery to invade Yorubaland was an invitation to ignite religious and tribal wars.
