Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland , Gani Adams , has asked security operatives to ensure the arrest of arsonists responsible for the fire outbreak at one of the houses of Yoruba rights activists , Sunday Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho .
He said this in a press statement on Tuesday titled , ‘ Adams commends S /West Governors on New security arrangements with herders … .urges FG to find those that razed Igboho ’s house ’.
According to the Yoruba generalissimo , failure to investigate the fire outbreak at Igboho ’s house can heat up the polity.
Adams , who condemned those behind the fire incident at Igboho’ s house in Ibadan , said “ the fire outbreak is an attempt to frustrate the young man” .
He said it was “ unfortunate that some powerful individuals in the South -West are not happy with what is happening in the region ”
While asking the Federal Government to unravel those behind the fire incident , Adams said, “ The ugly incident speaks volumes of the spate of insecurity across the country . The government is in the best position to investigate the circumstances surrounding the ugly incident so that they will not overheat the polity” Aare Adams said .
Meanwhile, he commended the South -West governors for raising their voices against night and under -aged grazing across the region.
Adams said the new agreement was a swift response to the growing spate of insecurity across the region .
The governors had in a meeting held on Monday with the leaders of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria in Akure, Ondo state Capital agreed to outlaw open and under -aged grazing in South -West .
Throwing his weight behind the new development , Adams in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media , Kehinde Aderemi , said the new arrangement was the governors’ response to the growing insecurity across the region.
He said, “ I commend the governors on the new development . It was a welcome development. The underlying motive is to reduce the growing tension in the region. But in solving these problems , we need to support the South -West Security Network better known as Operation Amotekun. ”
