Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams has warned criminal herdsmen in the South-West to stay away from the region or face the wrath of the Oodua Peoples Congress.
The Aare Onakakanfo reacted to the recent invasion on the resident of Professor Wole Soyinka by herders, in a statement titled, “Soyinka: Adams Warns criminal herdsmen to stay away from southwest’, on Thursday.
Adams in a statement released through his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, said the manner of the encroachment was a threat to the privacy of the Nobel laureate.
The statement quoted Adams as lamenting that the recent developments and reports made available to him across the South-West have shown that “criminal herdsmen have migrated from Ibarapa, in Oyo State to Yewa in Ogun State, making the state prone to increasing spate of insecurity.”

He also questioned the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to remain silent on the increase in insecurity across the South-West.
He also declared that activities of criminal herdsmen are “worrisome and very unbearable.”
Adams also advised the South-West governors to reinforce the region with the recruitments of Amotekun personnel, especially, to palaces and homes of prominent people and personalities living in the rural areas and communities across the region.
This, he said, would help to “reduce the illegal influx of criminal herdsmen and put a stop to the threats to individuals’ lives and property.”
