The Oodua People’s Congress-Reformed (OPC-R), yesterday warned unruly herdsmen to desist from terrorising the Southwest.
Addressing a press conference in Lagos, the State Coordinator of the group, Comrade Samson Olaosebikan urged Yoruba monarchs to close ranks and work for the security of their people.
Olaosebikan said the Southwest was under siege and warned militant herders “their accomplices and godfathers to desist from any evil act.”
He added: “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.
The group stated that it was ready to collaborate with other groups in the fight against insecurity in the Southwest zone.
‘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,’’ he said.
