Oyo State Gov Reveal Bandits, Kidnappers, Cultists Are Enemy Not Fulani

The Oyo State government has now dismissed claims that the Hausa-Fulani herdsmen are the brain behind the incidents of kidnapping and banditry.

In a state broadcast on Wednesday, January 20, the state governor, Seyi Makinde, said the real enemy of the state are bandits, Kidnappers, Cultists, and other assailants and not the Hausa-Fulani herdsmen who are lawful residents of the state.

In his broadcast, the governor warned against actions by some residents of the state who have given an ultimatum to some residents of the state to vacate their communities. He said this is unconstitutional and will not be tolerated.

The speech reads;

”We cannot overlook the fact that there have indeed been instances that cause concern. The fragile peace between the herdsmen and farmers in Oke Ogun is being threatened.

Individuals who are not authorised are going around chasing people from their homes and causing mayhem. This assault on residents of Oyo state is not the way to further the Yoruba cause.

Let me state that we shall not sit back and watch anyone make any law-abiding resident of Oyo state feel unsafe in their homes, farms, or business places. We are aware of some people circulating flyers and giving people ultimatums to leave their land. This is totally unacceptable and will not be condoned.
