Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, has declared readiness to lead fight against killer herdsmen.
Adams, who called for a South-West Security Summit to discuss herdsmen killings in the region, stated that events of the last few months have shown that Nigeria is at the crossroads.
A statement he personally signed and made available to DAILY POST lamented that blood thirsty maniacs are on the rampage, killing and maiming innocent Nigerians.
It reads: “The insecurity in the land is reaching an alarming peak. Pitiably, the ‘clear and present danger’ today is that the government seems helpless to curtail the situation.
“In some sections of the country, it is no longer ‘breaking news’ that marauders kill farmers at will.
“Because these killings are giving patriotic Nigerians the creeps, patriots are shouting themselves hoarse, telling the government to do something urgently to check the trend.
“While members of the comity of nations are alarmed about happenings in our country, it appears as if they are crying more than the bereaved.
“Although the government has promised to check the rampaging lunatics, Nigerians are still not convinced of a decisive clampdown on these killers.
“Thousands of lives have been lost to these sons of Lucifer, but it is strange that not even a single arrest or prosecution has been affected.
“When I was installed as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland by His Imperial Majesty, Iku Baba Yeye and Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, on January 13, 2018, I vowed that I would do everything to project the image and protect the name of Yorubaland.
“Sadly, my zeal to protect Yorubaland and the will of millions of Yoruba to defend their fatherland are being tested with the invasion of some parts of our land by these killers.
