A pan-Yoruba group, Apapo Oodua Koya has raises alarm that terrorists and bandits terrorizing some forest in oyo, ondo and Ogun states are planning to carry out mass abduction of students in the three states.
The group in a statement made available to Journalists in ibadan disclosed that it has received fresh information that the armed terrorists in Ogun, Oyo and Ondo forests are targeting primary and secondary schools in the three states.
The statement reads: “We got the information through credible intelligence. We have the capacity to tap some of the communication of the insurgents usually rendered in Fulfulde. They are planning to kidnap school children in large numbers in any or all of the states mentioned above.
“They are currently located at Yewa in Ogun State, they are in Oke-Ogun in Oyo and Idanre-Ondo town axis in Ondo State” Apapo O’odua Koya, (AOKOYA) said in the letter sent to the state governors.
“It is our responsibility to inform you of information at our disposal. We hope you begin to trust our intelligence beginning from two years ago when we warned the Southwest Governors about armed Fulani cells spread across the South West forests” The governors are Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State and Seyi Makinde of Oyo State.
“If you allow this kidnapping to take place, you will be helpless because the security network you have around you are not for you but designed and controlled by enemies of Yoruba Nation.
“The intelligence information you receive are largely designed to deceive you because you don’t own the structures.
“You are as vulnerable as a lonely bird on house top. Your future lay in alliance with you own people at this difficult moment in Yoruba history.”
