A Yoruba organisation, Yoruba Appraisal Forum (YAF), has called on the Federal Government to direct it’s security agencies including the Department of State Security (DSS), the Army and Police to clampdown on secessionist agitators, Sunday Igboho, Nnamdi Kanu, Asari Dokubo and others seeking to throw the country into further turmoil.
Speaking at a protest held in Ado Ekiti on Thursday to condemn the agitators, the group’s National Coordinator, Adeshina Animashaun, described their actions as treasonable and unpatriotic.
Animashaun accused leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, of being behind arson and attacks on security agents and formations in the South-East under the guise of secession.
He therefore adviced the Yoruba not to allow IPOB and their agents to infiltrate their ranks and brainwash them.
Animashaun while regretting the spate of violence in the southwest and southeast in recent times that led to the loss of lives and properties, warned that the likes of Igboho and Kanu should not be allowed to turn Nigeria into another Somalia.
He noted that the Yoruba lost much during the 2020 #EndSARS protest and such should not be allowed to happen again.
YAF, he said will not allow the Southwest to turn into a theatre of war.
The YAF coordinator warned Igboho and his kind to retrace their steps to avoid dire consequences.
He raised the alarm that secessionist elements were planning a second violent phase of their so-called agitation for Yoruba Nation and called on Government to immediately deploy security agents to clampdown on them before they set the entire country ablaze.
