INSECURITY: Alaafin, Adams reveal Yoruba's plans to end menace

Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, and the Generalissimo of Yoruba land, Aare Gani Adams have revealed plans to end insecurity in the region.

The duo spoke at a gathering of Yoruba leaders on Thursday, in Ibadan, Oyo state.

Alaafin, in his comments said traditional rulers are ready to work with President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to restore peace and unity in the country.

Adeyemi, added that Buhari has been able to achieve what a former president from Yoruba region could not achieve.

He, however urged Nigerians to support President Buhari to rebuild the nation because he cannot do it alone.

The monarch cautioned the people not to blame the president, but support him to achieve the desired results for Nigeria, saying Buhari was doing his best for the nation.
