Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has warned that OOdu People Congress and other related traditional security outfits would wipe out terrorists from Yorubaland.
He warned gunmen to stop tempting the region in order to avoid the wrath of Yoruba traditional power.
Adams said the Southwest Security Stakeholders Group (SSSG), comprising the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) and others, will henceforth resist attacks.
The Aare made the comment while paying homage to the Olowo of the Owo Kingdom, HRM Oba Ajibade Ogunoye.
He also said that measures have been put in place to forestall a repeat of the June 5 massacre in Owo.
Recall that over 40 worshippers died after gunmen attacked St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State with guns and bombs.
Adams said the incident remained the most devastating experience of terrorism in Yoruba modern history.
The chief recalled issuing a statement to console the king and the people, reiterating his support to make the town safe.
“I also wrote a letter informing the United Nations Secretary-General, Mr Antonio Guterres of the need to prevent further calamity capable of destroying Nigeria, like what happened in Bosnia,” he said.
Adams added that the memo was addressed to the international community and the State Security Departments across the world.
“This time around, the Yoruba are more united; we are not cowards. In Yorubaland, we have never lost any war.
“Therefore, we are not going to relent or relax until we get rid of terrorists across the Southwest”, he vowed.
Oba Ogunoye thanked Adams for the struggle to defend the region and blamed the high rate of insecurity on the federal system of government.
The monarch stressed that establishing state police would ensure the internal security of the country.
“Owo people are prepared to defend themselves against external aggressors,” he added.
