Leader of the Yoruba World Congress, Emeritus Prof. Banji Akintoye, says the sponsor of umbrella Fulani soci-cultural group, Miyetti Allah, are only beating the drums of war.
Akintoye said a recent statement by the National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Bodejo, was a filthy vituperation that decent Nigerians should ignore.
YWC Director of Communications, Moses Jolayemi, in a statement on Tuesday, warned that the sponsors of Miyetti were calling for war.
“Ordinarily, the YWC would not respond to such imbecilities but considering the fact that the fellow in question may not be acting alone, we have decided to send him back to his masters that no part of Yorubaland will be ceded to any Fulani marauders under any guise and for any reason,” the statement said.
Akintoye vowed that the Yoruba nation would resist every attempt by “a small, ignoble clique of feudal jingoists” to foist themselves on the rest of the country or annex the Southwest.
“If other tribes so desire, they can allow their inheritance and indeed their ancestry to be obliterated by these elements, who are clandestinely carrying out a carefully mapped ethnic cleansing agenda. But for the Yoruba, such ambition can only remain a mere dream,” the YWC leader warned.
