Groups From South-West Warns Traditional Rulers, Wants Gumi’s Visit To Igboho Be Probed
The Alliance for Oke-Ogun Development, a socio-political group, in the Oke-Ogun area of Oyo State, has called on the Department of State Services to investigate the motive behind the visit of Sheik Ahmad Gumi’s visit to Igboho town.
Yoruba Nation activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho is an indigene of Igboho, the headquarters of the Oorelope Local Government Area of Oyo State.
The National Coordinator of the AOD, Chief Abiodun Fasasi, in a statement on Thursday alleged that Gumi’s visit was an attempt to part of moves to ‘Fulanise’ the Oke-Ogun area.
The OAD claimed terrorists were fleeing the North-East following the recent victory of the Nigerian Army over them.
The group called on the traditional rulers in the region to be wary of insiders who, they said were ready to sell out to terrorists.
It stated, “It is more disturbing that an indigene of Oke Ogun can willingly be a host to a personality like Gumi, we want the DSS to investigate the real reason for his visit; the host must equally be investigated. The man is the one saddled with the responsibility of championing the course of amnesty for the bandits,”
“The apex Sociopolitical group in Oke Ogun, Alliance For Oke Ogun Development, uses this medium to charge the Federal Government, the Oyo State Chief Security Officer, Governor Seyi Makinde, to look into this case and nip in the bud.
“We also call on our traditional rulers and the entire people of the state to be at alert against individuals that are strangers and might portend danger to our wellbeing.”
However, when one of our correspondents contacted Gumi, his phone numbers were switched off and a text message sent to his telephone had not been responded to as of the time of filing this report.
