IG Sends Emissaries to Gani Adams over OPC’s Threats to Herdsmen on Insecurity
Following the seven-day ultimatum handed down to Fulani herdsmen in the South-west by the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu, has sent his Chief of Staff, Mr. Jude Nwankor, to the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Abiodun Ige Adams.
Speaking during the visit in his house in Lagos, Adams tasked the IG on the need to be proactive in tackling the various security issues in the country.
Adams restated his belief in boosting local security, saying the best measure is to get people at the grassroots involved in local security.
He told the top police hierarchy that as the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, “there are pressures on me to act on the issues”.
Adams admitted that the OPC “is ready to partner with the police in solving the security challenges in the country”, adding that “our group has a history of winning war against kidnapping, banditry and other social vices”.
