The Assembly of Traditional religious worshipers( ATRWOS ) on Tuesday expressed their readiness to be part of the fight against criminality and banditry that have ravaged Ondo state in recent times.
The traditional worshipers therefore called on Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to involve them in his move to curb “ the heinous activities of criminal herdsmen in our land. ”
Addressing Newsmen in Akure the coordinator of the Assembly of Traditional religious worshipers in Ondo state, Chief Adewale Oso said the Assembly had human capacity, other resources as well as spiritual support of the ancestors to face insecurity in Ondo state.
He said “ Let us reason together and apply workable approach or solution to this problem. The State Government has ignored the traditional worshippers and we are the one who can assist them to end this Fulani Jihadist.
When children depart from the legacy of their forefather, they will become prey to their enemies. If Chief Sunday lgboho, Chief Gani Adams had chosen to be ignorant like many of our people by departing from the way of their ancestors, we would not be asking them to help us chase out criminal herdsmen.
We need to wake up from our slumber and give support to the traditional worshippers.
The government should not see this Fulani herdsmen notorious activities as just kidnapping. They are terrorist across Nigeria Borders and mainly from the Northern part: of this country.
It is obvious they have sponsors among our people from North and outside the country. Therefore, we should look beyond asking them to live our land. Government should make efforts to locate their root, remove the root and cut down the
They have their base across the state. Owena, Ogbese, Ikaramu, Ikare, lsua junction, Akungba junction, Owo junction, Ipele junction, Emure Ile and others.
These places should be well monitored, their leaders Fished out and held responsible for any act of killing and kidnapping.We are also calling on Northern elders and Elites to immediately embark on massive education of their children.
Sharia Education is good education if that is what they want. It should be given to them.They should know that the children they failed to educate are the one giving us sleepless night today. It is a pity that our leaders just realised that we are under siege in Yoruba land.
Fulani’s are all over our land moving freely, destroying our farmland, raping, killing our children and wife and nobody can stop them or challenge them because they have the backing of the his people in Nigeria.
We called for immediate restructuring of this country mainly control by Fulani’s .We want to appeal to our Christian and Islamic brothers and sister to please, cooperate with us at this junction. Let us fight this battle together for peace and freedom in our ancestral land.
ATRWOS is battle ready to join the state government in the fight against insecurity. Let us change the society together .
The Fulani Herdsmen In alliance with their callous imperialists masters and puppet administration must be called to order. An injury to one is an injury to all. Our traditions have powers to expose evil doers around us.
If some people are killing and hiding, when authorities do the right things, in the traditional way, they would be exposed.
If the federal government cannot fish out suspected Fulani herdsmen that killed our prominent Ondo elites, of Late Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, HRM Late Oba Adeusi Olufon of lfon and Late Amos Arijesuyo, Deputy Registrar, FUTA. Then the governor is not asking for too much.
We the Assembly of traditional Religion worshippers of ondo State, hereby throw our weight behind Arakunrin Rotiml Akeredolu and the Government of Ondo State, that the fulani Herdsmen in our Reserve Forest should immediately live our farm land if they cannot live in peace with us.
The land belongs to Olodumare and we got it through our ancestor’s effort. Nobody should cause us any pain under any guise in our father’s land. Any further attack on our people shall be met with the reprisal attack. This is not a threat, we are battle ready. ”
