The Kwara State chapter of the Pan Yoruba Organisation, Afenifere has called on the Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq to key-into the Amotekun Security Project being canvassed in all Yoruba States.
This call was unanimously adopted at a State meeting of the chapter held on 29th February, 2020.
The group maintained that apart from the cultural and linguistic affinity of Kwara State with the South-western states, the ravaging herdsmen have caged many communities and subjected them to avoidable trauma.
In a statement jointly signed by the chairman of the group in Ilorin, Hon Lekan Alabi and PRO, Comrade Adeleye Adebayo and made available to this medium, Afenifere said “Our farms are being ravaged with impunity by the herdsmen and we have gradually become prisoners in our land.
“In the light of the above, we call on Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq to key into the Amotekun Security Project as proposed by the Yoruba States.
“This will prevent unnecessary loss of lives, loss of properties and anguish that herdsmen/community clashes could bring”, it noted.
Afenifere however condemned the abduction of a member of NURTW (Maraba Garage chapter), Mallam Taofeeq Ali who was kidnapped near Kainji.
“As it happened in Niger State, so it happened in nearby Kogi State; therefore, we in Kwara State must not sleep with our eyes closed. A stitch in time saves nine”, it noted.
