Iskilu Wakili, a notorious Fulani gang leader, terrorising Ayete community in Ibarapa has been reportedly arrested.
DAILY GIST gathered that he was arrested by men of the Odua Peoples Congress(OPC) on Sunday
Wakili was alleged to have been masterminding the killings and abductions in the Oyo communities.
Kehinde Aderemi, Special Assistant on Media to Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams Adams, confirmed his arrest.
The pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere also commended OPC for the arrest development.
Its National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, in a statement on Sunday, said: “Afenifere gives tremendous commendation to OPC under Iba Gani Adams for the arrest of iskilu Wakili, a Fulani bandit who has been spreading terror on ou people in Igboho area and the Nigerian Police and other security agencies unable to do anything about him.
“The early morning peaceful arrest confirms our position on how effective local initiative can do well in homeland security.
“We were not shocked that but for the intervention by the leadership in Oyo State, the Police would have gone after the OPC boys instead of taking the criminal from them and do the needful.
“Nigeria is going nowhere with a security network that shuns federalism.”
OPC on February 27 arrested the second-in-command to the alleged dreaded kidnapper, one Isiaka Muhammadu.
Unofficial sources had earlier revealed that angry bees chased away Iskilu Wakili, a notorious Fulani gang leader, terrorising Ayete community in Ibarapa
“What government cannot do,” the source said, “the gods of Ibarapa have done it.
“If Amotekun or police could not confront Wakili and his armed men, angry bees had done that and caused them to faint and run away.”
