The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, has claimed that he has obtained intelligence information indicating that terrorists have entered forests in the states of Osun, Oyo, and Ogun.
This information was included in a statement made on Sunday by Kehinde Aderemi, his special media assistant.
According to Adams, the terrorists were spotted with a sizable supply of ammo.
He urged the governors of the south-west to strengthen the Amotekun security network’s operations.
“Now that Abuja has seemingly lost the battle to terrorists, the south-west region has been the next target of these destroyers of hope,” the statement reads.
“Information reaching me today is that the terrorists are in-between Osu forest and Ile-Ife, Osun state, fully armed with various ammunition and they are presently in the forest between Abeokuta and Ibadan planning to attack us in the south-west.

“This is one information that we need to act on in order to avoid possible calamity. Yoruba aren’t cowards. So, let everybody in the south-west be vigilant and be watchful in checking this insecurity scourge that is already stiff-necking Nigeria.
“We will never allow them to destroy our land. Therefore, we urge the six governors in the south-west states to hold an urgent emergency security meeting with stakeholders across the region so as to address the impending implosion.
“We are aware of their plans to strike in Lagos, Ibadan, Oyo state, and Abeokuta in Ogun state, however, I implore all the governors in the south-west to recruit local security service structure in their various local governments.”
The Aare Ona Kakanfo stated that he is prepared to lend a helping hand to any of the governors in the south-west if necessary.
He urged President Muhammadu Buhari to restore his reputation and use his authority to create state police before he leaves office.
