Are Ona kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has warned that those opposed to the security initiative of the Southwest region tagged ‘Operation Amotekun’ risk facing death.
He made this remark while he spoke at the South-West Security Stakeholders Group summit at The Grand Place event centre Osogbo on Friday.
He stated that people of southwest would not tolerate any form of threat from any individual or groups over its decision to safeguard the region.
Adam noted that the masses in the region would stand by the South West governors in their bid to rid the region of criminality through the Western Nigeria Security Outfit codenamed “Operation Amotekun”.
His words, “We want everyone out there to know that the people of this region would not tolerate any form of threats from any individual or groups in relations to the issues of insecurity and the birth of Amotekun”.
“As you have seen events unfolding in recent times that the people of the southwest are behind the governors on the Amotekun project. Whoever opposes it would die mysteriously and the gods of Yorubaland would soon visit its wrath on its betrayers”.
“We are using this medium to tell any group with criminal tendencies to leave the region. Yoruba is not known for hostility, the race is accommodating and we love to live in peace and harmony with other race, but we should not be pushed to reacting to criminality against our people, such as kidnapping, banditry, destroying farms and raping women”, he said.
