Aareonakanfo of Yoruba land, Gani Adams, on Monday called on leaders in the country to employ traditional method to fight insecurity.
The leader of the O’odua People’s Congress started this at the 2021 Odun Aje (Wealth) Festival at Orile Agege in Lagos.
He also condemned the Federal Government over the security challenges in the country.
Adams also commended Southern Governors for their ban on open grazing.
“We totally support the position. I feel sad at the spate of insecurity across the Southwest. Kidnapping, banditry and killings have since been the bane of our region.”
He further stated that open grazing is old and not in line with the 21st century, adding thay the practice had created more problems.
“I wonder why the federal government is bent on going against the wishes of the people. In the last few years, Nigeria has been in the news mostly for the wrong reasons.
“The insecurity is alarming and increasing. I think we need to tackle the menace, using the traditional approach and global template.”
Adams lamented that the government has failed to unravel the mystery behind the various security challenges.
Aare accused government of creating instability and lack of cohesion among the various ethnic groups.
“Things have gone wrong and it is beyond everybody’s imagination”, the Yoruba leader fumed.
