Killings: Aare Gani Adams Calls For South West Security Summit

The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Isa Gani Adams, has called for a security summit to be held by the South West states.
Adams in a statement he personally signed on Tuesday, said the summit has become urgent in view of the insecurity in the country, especially the killings by herdsmen.
The statement reads in full: “Events of the last few months have shown that Nigeria is at the crossroads, Strange things are happening in the country.
“Blood thirsty maniacs are on the rampage, killing and maiming innocent Nigerians.
“The insecurity in the land is reaching an alarming peak.
“Pitiably, the ‘clear and present danger’ today is that the government seems helpless to curtail the situation.
“In some sections of the country, it is no longer ‘breaking news’ that marauders kill farmers at will.
“Because these killings are giving patriotic Nigerians the creeps, patriots are shouting themselves hoarse, telling the government to do something urgent to check the trend.
“While members of the comity of nations are alarmed about happenings in our country, it appears as if they are crying more than the bereaved.
“Although the government has promised to check the rampaging lunatics, Nigerians are still not convinced of a decisive clampdown on these killers.
“Thousands of lives have been lost to these sons of Lucifer, but it is strange that not even a single arrest or prosecution has been affected.
“Without sounding immodest, the more than 60 million Yoruba in this geographical space are the most accommodating ethnic group.
“Yoruba sons and daughters are dedicated to the Nigerian project, promoting peace and unity in the land.
“When I was installed as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland by His Imperial Majesty, Iku Baba Yeye and Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, on January 13, 2018, I vowed that I would do everything to project the image and protect the name of Yorubaland.
“Sadly, my zeal to protect Yorubaland and the will of millions of Yoruba to defend their fatherland are being tested with the invasion of some parts of our land by these killers.
“I find it difficult to comprehend this open insult that some killers, whose kinsmen live in our villages, towns and cities, will invade Yorubaland at will, kidnap, rape and, in some bizarre situations, kill some of our sons and daughters.
