South West urged to resist immigrants threatening peace, security


Otunba Gani Adams

Yoruba Koya Movement (YKM) has called on governments of South West states to stop accommodating persons who would threaten security in the region.

The pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, which has the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land, Gani Adams; Afenifere leaders and elder statesmen as members, said it was time the west took back their land from oppressors.

YKM stated this during a roundtable with representatives of various groups and informal security sector in the South West themed ‘Protecting Yoruba Land: Migrant Incursion and Threat to Peace and Security of Lagos State, at the Airport Hotel, Ikeja.


In its resolutions, the group alleged that “the current attacks on Nigeria are part of the territorial agenda of some vested Fulani oligarchy to occupy Nigeria.”

It noted that the North currently controls all security organs of the country.

“May we further reawaken your consciousness by alerting you to what you never took serious.

Today, all the military institutions in Nigeria are domiciled in the North.

Except that, thanks to Professor Yemi Osinbajo, one of them was recently booted out.”

The group also accused Northern leaders of empowering their youths to flood western states in the bid to possess the lands.

“We say without any fear of intimidation that the current migrant incursions into Yoruba land through Fulani herdsmen, Okada riders and Boko Haram elements are all well coordinated, planned and executed to fit the expansionist plan of the Fulani,” YKM added.

On restructuring, the group called for a return to the constitution before military incursion in 1966, where each region is allowed to control its resources.
