Funke Olakunrin’s Murder: Gani Adams Threatens War On Herdsmen
The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland and the leader of the Oodua Peoples Congress [OPC], Gani Adams, has on Saturday threatened to unleash war against herdsmen in the South West.
Gani Adams stated this in a statement issued by his Media Assistant, Kehinde Aderemi while reacting to the death of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin.
Mrs. Olakunrin is the daughter of the leader of pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti who was rid with herdsmen’s bullet on Friday along Ondo-Ore road.
Speaking, Adams said:
“We only want the whole world to know what has been done and being done to our people.
“They should be aware of the actions that preceded our reaction when it eventually comes.
“We are not bereft of ideas of how to stop this criminality on our land.
“It is just so that we should not be blamed when the reaction comes. We are like the proverbial goat that is being chased.
“When it gets to the wall, it will certainly react. We are at that stage now.”
Adams warned that “Yoruba people are not paper tigers and dogs who can only bark without biting.”
The Aare called on governors of the South West states and all traditional rulers to take bold steps to stamp out killings by Fulani herdsmen in their domains.
Adams charged the monarchs that there should be a process of identifying visitors or new settlers in every community.
He urged the monarchs to identify leaders of the visitors or settlers in their midst to ensure strange faces do not infilterate their communities.
While commiserating with Pa Fasoranti, said: “Papa, these are trying times but it is certain justice will come”.
