Gani Adams National Coordinator of the OPC, Otunba Gani Adams, has threatened to make Yorubaland a no-go area for militants to perpetuate their nefarious activities.
Adams, who confirmed the setting up of camps by the militants in the Lagos and Ogun axis, said: “I agree with the military that they have different camps but thank God that the military has risen to the task. Also, we as an organisation have decided to complement their efforts.
In his reaction, Founder of Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Dr. Fedrick Fasheun said he believes no militant will dare the security of Lagos State. He also said he believes that Lagos State is not sleeping or napping over the security situation in the state.
According to him: “We have waited patiently to confirm the suspicion, whether it is true that militants are building camps in some parts of Lagos and other South-West states. Whether it is true or not, I believe not many dare-devils will live to tell the story if any attempt is made on Lagos”.
