“Stay away from Ibadanland and Oyo state” – Ibadan elders warn O’odua Nation Agitators

The Central Council Of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII), alongside the Olubadan-in-Council, Obas, Ibadan elders, Mogajis, and Baales, have issued a stern warning to O’odua Nation agitators, urging them to refrain from infiltrating Ibadanland and the entirety of Oyo state.

The statement comes in response to the recent attack on the Oyo State Government Secretariat by suspected agitators.

In a statement by CCII President-General Chief Niyi Ajewole, the elders condemned the invasion of the Oyo State Government seat of power, labelling it as a heinous assault aimed at seizing power.

They expressed concern over the audacious attempt to take over the Governor’s office and the House of Assembly, describing it as a deliberate act of localized mutiny.

Part of the statement read: “We hereby condemn this heinous assault in its entirety, with a strong warning that all these agitators should stay away from Ibadanland and Oyo state as anyone found with any forms of illegal assembly or hoisting of any flags, use of agitators caps, berets, vests, stickers will be considered as the enemy of the Ibadanland and the State will deal with according to the tradition and the law.

“CCII and indeed the entire sons and daughters of Ibadan received with terrible shock, embarrassment and consternation, the audacious invasion of the Oyo State Government seat of power, the State Secretariat, Ibadan.

“Of great and particular concern was the invasion of Ibadan, which has been enviably enjoying the peace that the indigenes and residents generally are happy about. It was said that the invaders actually attempted to take over the Governor’s office and the House of Assembly, the two vital organs of government and instruments of governance.

“It was a deliberate and daring attempt, targeted at seizing power. An attack of preponderance qualified to be described as localized mutiny, perhaps aimed to be expanded to the other parts of the country.”
