- The Oodua People’s Congress-Reformed (OPC-R) has risen against the violence of some herdsmen in the southwest region
- The OPC-R warned herdsmen to desist from any act of violence against residents and indigenes in the geopolitical zone
- It also called on traditional rulers especially in Lagos to unite in the fight against insecurity
Herdsmen who are resident in the southwest region have been warned by the Oodua People’s Congress-Reformed (OPC-R), to refrain from terrorising the geopolitical zone.
The Lagos co-ordinator of the OPC-R, Comrade Samson Olaosebikan, called on traditional rulers in the state to unite and work for the security of residents and indigenes, The Nation reports.
Claiming that the region has been besieged by some herdsmen, Olaosebikan warned the accomplices and godfathers of the cattle rearers to desist from any evil act.
‘’Also, our Obas should gird their loins and do something before their palaces are invaded. The fight for supremacy should be set aside for now," he added.
The group vowed that it will do its utmost, with the collaboration of other associations, to end insecurity in the region.
Olaosebikan said: "We of OPC-Reformed are even ready and willing to work with any group whose priority is the security of lives and property of our people."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the OPC on Thursday, May 23, kicked against the establishment of a Fulani radio station by the federal government.
The group described the motive behind such establishment for a section of the country as questionable and not acceptable.
In a press statement issued by its publicity secretary, Barrister Yinka Oguntimehin, and sent to journalists the group flayed the federal government’s decision, saying it was not in any way sincere about it.
