OPC to Militants and Fulani Herdsmen: Enough is Enough
Written by Morenike Adebayo on June 27, 2016
Yoruba socio-cultural group, Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), has condemned what it called unwarranted, diabolical and fatal attacks on Yorubaland and its people as well as other non-indigenous inhabitants by Fulani herdsmen and Niger-Delta militants, saying enough is enough. The group made the condemnation in a statement by the spokesperson of its National Coordinating Council (NCC), Comrade Sina Akinpelu, in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Sunday.
It will be recalled that for two times last week some communities in Ogun and Lagos States came under attack by people suspected to be Niger Delta militants leaving many dead and injured. According to him, the OPC is able and ever ready to match force with force if that should be the only solution to the incessant attacks on Yorubaland. Akinpelu then appealed to Northern and Niger-Delta elders and leaders to call their people to order, insisting that no group or race has monopoly of violence.
