The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, says the Yoruba ethnic group should not be blamed if it decides to react to the recent killings in the region.
Aare Adams issued the stern statement in a reaction to the killing of Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, leader of Afenifere, a pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, The Cable reports.
Funke was shot dead by armed men along Benin-Ore road on Friday afternoon, July 12.
Yinka Odumakin, spokesman of Afenifere, attributed the incident to herdsmen but the police said the killers were armed robbers/kidnappers.
According to a statement by Kehinde Aderemi, Adam’s media aide, the Yoruba race is not short of ideas needed to put an end to atrocities in the region.
Adams described the death of Olakunrin as an invasion of the peaceful atmosphere of the southwest region.
“We only want the whole world to know what has been done and being done to our people. They should be aware of the actions that preceded our reaction when it eventually comes,” he said.
“We are not bereft of ideas of how to stop this criminality on our land. It is just so that we should not be blamed when the reaction comes.
“We are like the proverbial goat that is being chased. When it gets to the wall, it will certainly react. We are at that stage now,” Adams stated.
The aare onakakanfo who is also the leader of Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) condoled with Fasoranti, praying God to comfort him and his entire household.
“Papa, this is a very trying time, but it is certain justice will come,” he said.
