Why FG deploys military in South-West —Adams

NATIONAL coordinator of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), Otunba Gani Adams, has directed members of the group  to wake up and challenge those who are terrorising Yorubaland.

He also  attributed the deployment of soldiers to troubled  parts of Yorubaland  by the Federal Government to a particular spiritual  appeasement.

The OPlC chief gave the order while  speaking during the 2016 edition  of the annual Ifa  festival,  which took place in Abule  Ado  area of Amuwo  Odofin in Lagos State.

Adams described the invasion of the South-West  by milliitants as a slap  on the Yorubas and expressed the commitment and determination of the OPC to put an end to it.

He claimed that the different local government commanders of the group had some weeks before the deployment of the soldiers  made some offerings.

Adams also stated that the group agreed to do something spiritual against the physical attacks from the militants during a national  coordinating council meeting of the group, which took place in Akute area of the state.

The OPC chief said, “I told the cordinators  to make some sacrificial offerings in all their local governments and by the next meeting over 75 per cent of them had done the offering.”

He added that  it was not up to a week after that  when the president deployed the military in the place.
