The National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Otunba Gani Adams, has threatened to make Yorubaland a no-go area for militants to perpetuate their nefarious activities.
Adams, confirmed the setting up of camps by the militants in the Lagos and Ogun axis, commends the military’s efforts in containing the situation but added that OPC have decided to complement their efforts.
“I agree with the military that they have different camps but thank God that the military has risen to the task. Also, we as an organisation have decided to complement their efforts.”
He also said that the militants which have invaded the South West are not coming from Delta or Bayelsa states but from Ondo State.
“It is a bad signal, he said, I won’t deceive you but I can tell you that they have missed the post. They cannot go Scot free because what they are doing in their states cannot be replicated here in the South West. They will retreat because we will not encourage it.
“There is no way they can hide in Yoruba land. We have to thank the military for their aerial bombardment because their hideout is not one that can be easily located. The military bombardment has smoked them out”
Founder of the OPC, Dr. Fedrick Fasheun, said he believes no militant will dare the security of Lagos State, as the state is not sleeping or napping over the security situation in the state.
“We have waited patiently to confirm the suspicion, whether it is true that militants are building camps in some parts of Lagos and other South-West states. Whether it is true or not, I believe not many dare-devils will live to tell the story if any attempt is made on Lagos.”
The organisation, had last month issued a 14-day ultimatum to suspected Niger Delta militants to desist from attacking communities in the South West, else the Ijaw people in the region would gear up for reprisal attacks.
