IGANGAN ATTACK: OONI FAULTS THE NATION'S SECURITY INTELLIGENCE, CALLS FOR ROBUST MEASURES AGAINST A REOCCURRENCE


The Arole Oduduwa and Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, has condemned the recent midnight attack in Igangan town, Oyo State by some suspected criminal herdsmen, during which many lives and properties were lost. 

This was contained in a press statement released on Monday by the Director of Media and Public Affairs, Ooni's Palace, Comrade Moses Olafare. 

Ooni Ogunwusi blamed the successful perpetration of the invasion on negligent management of security intelligence, describing the attack as devilish and provocative, adding that such dastardly acts if allowed to continue unabated will ruin the unity and prosperity of Nigeria.

"So worrisome is that there was a tipoff recently by  Oyo State Chairman of Amotekun Security Corps, Gen. Ajibola Togun(rtd) recently, raising the alarm that some foreign Fulani herdsmen and bandits of Tuareg extraction have perfected plans to invade communities in South-West. 

"Such an attack in which victims credibly traced some perpetrators from a particular section of the country is capable disintegrating this country. That is why those behind it must be smoked out of their jungles and dealt with accordingly.

"There is no better time for robust security measures than now because security of lives and properties of Nigerians is the basis upon which government is being constituted.

"We Yorubas are disciplined people and law abiding but not fools. We are prepared to defend ourselves without resorting to anarchy", Ooni said.

The African foremost monarch who is the natural head of the Oduduwa race worldwide said the invasion is a height of criminality which must not go without strong  consequences for the perpetrators.
