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.
