The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams raised alarm over the rising Insecurity in Nigeria, calling on the United Nations (UN), European Union (EU) and other international organisations to immediately intervene to curb the menace.
In a letter addressed to the UN Secretary-General, Mr António Guterres, and copies sent to the European Union (EU), African Union (AU), United States State Departments, Council on Foreign Relations, the International Association for Religious Freedom in the United Kingdom, and other international organisations, Adams lamented that “no part of Nigeria is safe again.”
He entitled the letter, “Avoiding a replica of the Bosnian War in Nigeria.”
According to the traditional ruler, if the current insecurity in Nigeria is not tamed as soon as possible, it could consume the most populous black nation on earth.
Currently, in Nigeria, there is hardly any day that passes with media reports of killings in different parts of the country.
Concerned over the worrying development, Adams wrote, “Pitiably, terrorists moving from northern Nigeria to the South are being embraced, encouraged and empowered by powers that be in Nigeria.
“I am raising this alarm now because the effect of this dangerous trend may ultimately balkanise Nigeria and affect sub-Saharan Africa.
“Similar alarm was raised in defunct Yugoslavia and sadly, nobody put in check the pogromists whose actions led to the massacre in that geographical location.”
