Prof Nairalovers Nigeria, the Worldwide Leader of the Yoruba international motion, Ilana Omo Oodua, has referred to as out the Presidency of supporting criminality by going towards Ondo Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s order asking herdsmen to vacate forest reserves in the state.

“That is not solely unhealthy however harmful to the existence of Nigeria. It is an evaluation of the high quality of governance in Nigeria by the relaxation of the world.
“All Nigerians who’re being assaulted, raped, and killed by the Fulani should defend themselves; not solely Yorubas or these residing in Ondo. If we proceed to attend for the Federal Government, these herdsmen will kill all of us. We should rise to defend ourselves.
“The Nigerian authorities has proven once more that it is working for the Fulani. I don’t assume anyone ought to be afraid to say that as a result of it is the fact. The Fulani has been committing crimes on a large scale since 2015 in Nigeria.
“The government has never owned up that they are committing the crime. They have been going around kidnapping, killing people, and destroying farms, properties, and villages on a persistent scale and those things are crimes under the laws of Nigeria. In some parts of the country, it looks as if the army is colluding with them (herdsmen).”
