The Oodua People’s Congress yesterday issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen in Osun State to fish out the criminals among them.
The leader of OPC in the state, Leke Akintayo, gave the ultimatum in Osogbo at a peace meeting with the leaders of the Gan Allah Fulani Development Association of Nigeria and the Miyetti Allah Castle Breeders Association.
He warned herdsmen engaging in kidnapping, banditry, robbery, among others to vacate the state immediately or be made to face the full wrath of law. “Over the year, Osun had been adjudged to be the most peaceful state in Nigeria not until recently when the Fulani herders invaded our land and started kidnapping our people.
We want to sound a notice of warning to these Fulani herdsmen to desist from terrorising our people and the need for the good ones among them to fish out the bad ones among them within seven days,” he said.
