Adams unveils security team in Oyo, says OPC ready to secure S’West
The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, yesterday, said the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) would secure the South-West region with all might and strength.
He stated this during the unveiling of the security team in Ibadan, held at Dayland Event Centre, Barracks, Ijokodo, which had in attendance over 20,000 members of the group across Oyo.
Adams said the bad security situation in the country necessitated a new security arrangement purposely orchestrated to combat insecurity in the region.
He said: “The new security arrangement was first initiated in Lagos and Ogun. The Oyo State chapter is holding today while that of Osun will hold tomorrow with other South-West states holding at a later date.
“We are using this medium to send strong message to terrorists masquerading as kidnappers and killers across the South-West region. We will resist any attempt to turn Yorubaland into hub of terrorism. The South-West is no longer a home for terrorists.”
Meanwhile, Coordinator of OPC in Oyo, Rotimi Olumo, said the meeting was not political but an intervention strategy aimed at securing the state against terrorism.
