Members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) have arrested notorious Fulani herdsman terrorising Oyo communities, Iskilu Wakilu.
Kehinde Aderemi, Special Assistant on Media to Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams Adams, confirmed the development to newsmen on Sunday.
“Yes, he has been arrested by our team. You will get details later,” he said.
Meanwhile, the pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere has commended OPC for the arrest of Wakilu.
The National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, in a statement on Sunday, said: “Afenifere gives tremendous commendation to OPC under Iba Gani Adams for the arrest of iskilu Wakilu, a Fulani bandit who has been spreading terror on our people in Igboho area and the Nigerian Police and other security agencies are unable to do anything about him.
“The early morning peaceful arrest confirms our position on how effective local initiative can do well in homeland security.
“We were not shocked that but for the intervention by the leadership in Oyo State, the Police would have gone after the OPC boys instead of taking the criminal from them and do the needful.
“Nigeria is going nowhere with a security network that shuns federalism.Well done, OPC.”
On February 27, OPC had arrested one Isiaka Muhammadu, the alleged second-in-command to the dreaded kidnapper.
