The Pan-Yoruba Socio-political organization, Afenifere has ordered killer Fulani herdsmen to leave Southwest now or face serious confrontation.
The organization stated that about 30,000 people had been killed due to activities of killer herdsmen between 2015 and 2019.
At a news conference on Wednesday in Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, one of the leaders of Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo said the decision was taken following the killing of the daughter of Afenifere’s leader, Reuben Fasoranti, Olufunke Olakunrin by suspected herdsmen.
Adebanjo warned the National Assembly “not to amend the Land Use Act with the intent to change the predominance of land allocation in states to the federal government to allow RUGA’s implementation.
We demand their immediate exit from Yoruba land. If they refused to leave in a reasonable time, we will not stop our people from confronting them.
