The Yoruba generalissimo, Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Abiodun Ige Adams, has dragged the federal government before the United Nations, as attempt to seek the immediate intervention on the spate of killings in the South-west region of the country.
Adams in his letter to the world body, which was copied the Africa Union (AU), the president of the United States, the British Government and the International Criminal Court (ICC), decried the level of insecurity in the region and the country, saying the “senseless killings and massacre of Nigerians, almost on a daily basis, are tragically sliding toward an anarchical terminal point.
The inability or apathetical attitude of the federal government, pitiably as it is, is already compounding an already gory situation.
In the letter titled: ‘Urgent Need to Stop Killings by Fulani Herdsmen in Yorubaland’, the Yoruba leader wrote: “This is to bring to your attention a clear and present danger threatening the fragile union of our great country, Nigeria.
Yorubaland has been put under serious pressure through payment of ransom running into millions of naira demanded by these conscienceless, unscrupulous and ruthless murderers.
Now, the agitation for them to leave our land has reached an alarming crescendo and the backing (that is the belief of our people) given to them by the federal government to continue to lay claim to the fact that nobody can chase anybody away from any part of the country, is not helping matters.
The peace and stability of Yoruba people in this geographical space called Nigeria are being tested by blood-thirsty maniacs through invasion of our land.
In our space, these herdsmen are accused daily of committing rape, kidnap and murder.
