By Steve Oko
Piqued by the increasing atrocities of the killer herdsmen in Yoruba land, a Yoruba socio-cultural group, Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide (YCYW), has issued a 7-day ultimatum to militant herdsmen to quit South West geopolitical zone.
The group lamented that herdsmen had now taken South West hostage.
It expressed dismay over the increasing cases of abduction, rape and barbaric killings in the zone perpetrated by herdsmen.
The group in a communique issued after a meeting of its members on May 23, at Ile-Ife, Osun State, lamented the growing insecurity in Yoruba land allegedly precipitated by militant herdsmen and members of the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram.
In the communique signed by its President, Aremo (Barr)Oladotun Hassan, the group also expressed fury over federal government’s docility alleging that government is pampering herdsmen.
The group warned of reprisal attacks if after seven days the militant herdsmen failed to quit Yoruba land.
The group also bashed the Presidency for comparing Afenifere and Ohanaeze socio-cultural groups with Miyetti Allah which has claimed responsibility for many senseless killings in the country.
The communique obtained by Wawa News Global read in part :“In view of the recurrent decimal of flagrant brutal killings by the gun wielding terrorist Fulani Herdsmen/Boko Haram, aggressive invasion and violent attacks and alleged kidnapping of innocent Yorubas and Nigerians domiciled in Yoruba Land, gross violation of fundamental rights to human dignity leading to serial and merciless killings of innocent youths, rising wave of insecurity across the nation in Lagos around Ojokoro, Ibadan to Ife road, Ibadan to Ijebu Ode/Benin Ore road, Ekiti to Akure and other highways kidnappings and robberies, incessant records of brutal ritual killings to mention a few, precipitating our unanimous resolution via final 7 days quite notice to all militant herdsmen/boko haram to stay off all our territories, towns, villages and highways in all southwest states.”
The Yoruba group also lampooned the federal government over the controversial meeting it had with Miyetti Allah and its plan to float a radio station for Fulanis, accusing the government of pursuing Northern agenda.
