The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has raised alarm over the infiltration of parts of Oyo state by terrorists and armed Fulani herdsmen.
Adams in a statement on Wednesday by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr Kehinde Aderemi, expressed concerns over the development.
“I have confirmed intelligence reports that the historic Kishi Town has been ravaged by terrorists.
“Killing and kidnapping of over a hundred people are frightening and worrisome,” he said.
“The records are there. The recent intelligence report from Kishi is too frightening because terrorists have taken over the area, with the number of victims growing by the day. We need to react to these senseless killings because of the timing and exigencies.
“I have sent the report to the Oyo State governor, Engr Seyi Makinde. I have also alerted the Director-General of Amotekun in Oyo State. I have also informed the Alaafin of Oyo, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, through a message to Alaafin’s Personal Assistant, and I have informed the Okere of Saki”, he said
“The Aare in Council had earlier raised the alarm on the infiltration of terrorists and killer Fulani herdsmen in the region. The council said over 500 power bikes and assorted armour belonging to the terrorists have been physically sighted along the abandoned Lusada route moving towards Sokoto, from Igbo Ora in Oyo State.”
