We don’t want war, says Ooni of Ife after meeting with President Buhari

92

The Ooni of Ife, Obi Adeyeye Ogunwusi Thursday expressed grave concerns over the recent string of attacks in the southwest region, especially after the death of Mrs Funke Olakunri, the daughter of Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, who was killed by an armed gang suspected to be herdsmen on Kajola-Ore road, Ondo State.

The Ooni of Ife, said that the South West region does not want to experience any other war, after he met with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

“Everybody is beating the drum of war, we don’t want war, who can stand war, we want something better for our youths. 

“We should better use them for something good other than shouting war and anarchy. We don’t want that. 

“How to improve security. I came to speak on behalf of other traditional rulers. The issue at hand in the South West is real. The issue of insecurity, we that live in the remote and rural areas of the south western part of the country, most of the bushes are occupied by strange people and we decided to work with the government to fish them out. 

“We told the President that and he is on the same page with us. Politicians should be careful not to throw things out of proportion. 

“We should make sure things are right and the President has given good directives to security chiefs including the IG to visit  all traditional institutions in the south west.” he said 

The Ooni stressed that everything must be done to put all security agencies to good use and work with the locals to separate the bad eggs. 

According to him, “We shouldn’t keep over hyping war and we still want to keep the peace in the south west. We don’t want anarchy.”
