The Aare Ona Kankafo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams, yesterday said Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho) is fighting a just cause.
Adams, who spoke on Channels Politics Today, said: “If you provoke people to a certain extent, they start taking laws into their hands.
“I don’t support people taking laws into their hands but when you kill my people, when you maim my people and rape my people, I’ll rise in defence.”
He said the Federal government must do more to arrest the security situation, adding that the country is divided.
Adams hailed the eviction directive of Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
He said: “If the governor did not give the eviction order, will the Federal government agree to call the Governors’ forum to hold a meeting…? Will the Miyetti Allah come with their executive to meet him?
“So as a leader, as a Chief Security Officer, you must take the bull by the horn and if he didn’t give that notice, they won’t allow the governor to ban open grazing.
“If the governor did not give that notice, they won’t even know the power of authority the governor has as a state governor.
“We can’t allow what is happening in the Northwest, Northeast, even in the Middle Belt to happen in Yorubaland.
“Don’t forget Yoruba is the commercial region of this country; it’s the economic land of this country, so the Federal Government must know the implications of security threats to Yorubaland.”
