Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun, wants Yorubas in Nigeria to prepare themselves physically and spiritually against terrorists.



The monarch spoke at a meeting with the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams.

The Aare paid a visit to the palace of Oba Olanipekun on Tuesday.

The Oba condemned the spate of killings, recalling the brutal attack on worshippers at a church in Owo, Ondo State.

The Ataoja said the massacre showed that Yorubaland has remained the target of terror groups.

“I am happy the Aareo Onakakanfo of Yoruba land is here and I want to appeal to him to save our land from these terrorists.

“The Southwest is boiling, and it is only when we get ourselves prepared physically and spiritually that we can rid our region of terrorists that have invaded the region.”

Iba Adams said the security challenges in the country needed urgent intervention from all and sundry.

The Yoruba generalissimo assured the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) under his leadership would do everything to forestall a repeat of the Owo attack.

The Aare, however, advised monarchs to desist from giving prominent and sacred traditional titles to non-Yoruba people.

The traditional leader said such an act was enough to destroy the sanctity of Yoruba culture and tradition.

Efforts are on to build a workable synergy between the local security and government agencies. We are ready to partner with Southwest governors to beef up security.

“Kabiesi should help tell our traditional rulers to save our tradition from going into extinction." "The idea of giving prominent Yoruba titles to non-Yoruba is at variance with Yoruba culture and tradition," he complained.
