Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Aare Gani Adams, has queried the source of weapons the Fulani herdsmen use in killing Nigerians across the country.
According to Daily Post, Adams said that the AK 47 is a firearm that goes for about N1 million with many bullets, which is not a firearm that an ordinary herdsman can afford.
He stated this during a visit to the condole with the leader of the Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasoranti over the murder of his daughter, Mrs Funke Olakunrin.
He said that there are forces behind them in three phases and they are looking beyond ordinary Fulani herdsmen.
The first he said are the ones that strike in the bush, the second set are those that issue statements to back them up and the third set are the strategists who give instructions to those who strike and those who issue statements.
He said: “How can ordinary Fulani herdsmen be holding AK 47. In our findings, the AK 47 rifle goes for about N1 million and with many bullets. So, we are looking beyond ordinary Fulani herdsmen.
“We realised that there are some forces behind them in three phases. Those who strike in the bush, Those who issued statements to back them up and those who are strategists who give instructions to those who strike and those who issue statements.”
“Our problem in Yorubaland is that we don’t prepare, we always react. When we tell our people to prepare, but they will employ a nonchalant attitude to it.
“I have seen this signal, I have the information. Last year, I wrote our governors and a summit on security was held three weeks ago, just within three hours we couldn’t conclude that summit before they left that venue.”
“We are having different meetings on different organizations and we are planning to have a synergy with our state government in the South-West.
“Don’t forget, that the governors are the chief security officers of their states and in a sensitive security situation like this we have to be very careful not to jump the gun.
“Now we don’t have option, we have to work with them. They are the chief security officers of their states and anything that happens within their state is an embarrassment to them.
“Don’t forget that they are the ones collecting all the security votes. As the Aare Ona Kankafo, I only use my personal fund. We are talking about someone that is ready to sacrifice anything for his own race and not reading political meaning to all that is happening.
“I’ve been notified that the IGP has arranged a special squad to work on that dangerous spot of the South-West due to the letter I wrote to the IGP four weeks ago.”
