The Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has decried the spate of killings across the country and called for a cessation of hostilities between warring parties.
Delivering a lecture yesterday in Lagos at a conference on African origins tagged: ‘New scientific evidence on origins of Nigerian peoples’, organised by Adulawo media in conjunction with the Royal House of Oduduwa and Genetics Society of Nigeria, the Ooni said Nigerians have to come together to put an end to the senseless killings.
“We are all brothers and sisters and cannot afford to be divided; we need to embrace one another and put end to the incessant killings across the country.
“If we speak with one voice and protect one another across board, the generation yet unborn will be very happy that we fought for them. We can’t continue to be divided. Why are we killing ourselves? Enough is enough; let us look inward to take our region and country as a whole to another level,” he said.
