The Oodua People’s Congress OPC has called on its members to prepare to defend yorubaland should it be attacked again by Fulani herdsmen.
Victor Olayemi Egbeyemi and Olonimoyo Fesisogbo Pedro, the Ondo State Chairman and Secretary of the group respectively after a meeting in Akure over the weekend said the incessant attacks by herdsmen in different parts of the state was worrisome and asked Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to enact a law that would protect farmers against the activities of herdsmen in the state.

 

““OPC members should get prepared whether there is war or not. The herdsmen kidnapped people in Ore, they attacked the wife of our member in Akure North, and people are fleeing their farms because of the activities of the herdsmen. Chief Olu Falae’s farm was burnt; we should rise up to defend our territories.

 

“We should not wait until they start to kill our people before we plan to defend them. We want to reorganize ourselves to defend the interest of Yoruba people. Both Aare Adams and Dr Fasehun’s factions must work together in the interest of the people.

 

“It is high time the Adams and Fasehun factions come together in the state in the interest of the people as the issue before them is beyond the supremacy battle between the two groups,’ it said.
