The National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Otunba Gani Adams, has spoken out against recent killing of the residents in some Lagos and Ogun communities by suspected militants.
He described the incidents as unfortunate but said the OPC will not confront them even though the group had the capacity to do so.
Speaking in Lagos at the weekend, Adams said: “With what has happened now, we have realised that there is a lot of threat confronting the South West.”
Condemning the wanton killings and destruction of property, the OPC leader said:
“We are still talking about the menace of herdsmen and some hoodlums masquerading as kidnappers or militants started to kill our people to the extent that the Ogun State deputy governor came to the area and they chased the security of the deputy governor and the police could not do anything. The law enforcement agents should tell the whole world how many of the criminals that they have arrested after more than 50 people have been massacred.”
He called on leaders from the South West to support the OPC to fight for their interest.
