Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Iba Gani Adams, has called for permission from three southwest governors to allow the newly inaugurated Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) Dependable Team and Southwest Security Stakeholders Group (SSSG) to raid the hideouts of terrorists along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Adams stated this in a release on Thursday by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, expressing concern over the incessant attacks on travellers plying the road.

His statement followed the Tuesday attack on travellers on an 18-seater bus by terrorists in military camouflage.

Adams said since the police had failed to honour the earlier arrangements to provide effective security along the highway, it is pertinent to ask Governors Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun) and Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos) to allow the OPC, Amotekun and other security groups like the hunters, vigilante, COMSAIC, Isokan Oodua under the auspices of the SSSG to get rid of terrorists from the bushes.

“There has been an abnormal surge in cases of kidnapping along the Lagos-Ibadan Express Way. The information at my disposal indicates the surge in the numbers of terrorists and kidnappers hiding at Sapade, a 62km town to Ibadan.

“The situation is getting out of hand and I believe it is now time for the three governors of Oyo, Ogun and Lagos to allow us flush the bandits out of their hiding place. The road is the most strategic road in the Southwest, we would not allow terrorists to set our region ablaze through constant attacks.

“I want to assure the governors that we will flush out the terrorists from their hideouts within three weeks. We can also work with Amotekun to salvage the situation and secure the road and other roads in the Southwest,” said the Yoruba generalissimo.

Iba Adams, while warning terrorists and bandits to stay away from the south west, insisted he would not fold his arms to see the highway taken over by terrorists.
