Oluseye Ojo, Ibadan

Joint security agents, comprising personnel of the conventional security agencies and the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC)  Monday evening engaged in a fierce battle with bandits in the forest of Old Oyo National Park.

The bandits were said to be hibernating in the forest and the security agencies, especially OPC and other vigilance groups, smoked them out.

The raiding of the bandits hideout was sequel to  the alarm raised by the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, some days ago that bandits and terrorists have been hibernating in the forest and Old Oyo National Park on Oke-Ogun axis of Oyo State.

At the end of the operation, the police confirmed that three bandits have been arrested, adding that other members of the gang escaped with gunshot wounds, though the OPC said five bandits were arrested and they have been handed over to the police,

Oyo State  Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) , Mr Olugbenga Fadeyi, in a statement , said: “On September  20,at about 7pm, combined team of  police and vigilante groups encountered dare devil bandits in the forest along Igbeti Kisi areas in the hideout of the bandits and three suspects were arrested, while some escaped with bullets wounds. Four AK-47 rifles were recovered with five magazines and 67 rounds of live ammunition, N78,000, four handsets and assorted charms.

“Efforts are being intensified to arrest the fleeing suspects with wounds.The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) has commenced  investigating. One more AK49 rifle was recovered with 16 live ammunition by Joint Security agents and Vigilantes.”

Good job.
And then I got thinking ...
Why is the OPC able to carry guns to the extent of matching the bandits AK-47s and other weapons, to overpower the bandits/terrorists, but in the South East, the governors themselves fall over one another trying to kill even unarmed IPOB members who dared to want to secure the East against the same terrorist invaders?

The fact that the OPC could operate this way with SOLID support from the governors of Yorubaland, while Igbo governors betray their own peoples' effort at securing themselves, should warn Igbo people about the types of people they elect or entrust with public mandate.

Whether the governors like it not, if Igbo people (the real oha na eze) decide today that IPOB will provide security to the East, and TOTALLY back them with ALL support they can afford, there is really nothing anybody in Nigeria can do about it. FACT.  The OPC is proving this point handsomely in Yorubaland.

Igbo people should "receive sense", else the terrorist invaders would NEVER leave Igboland and Eastern Nigeria.

Well done to OPC!
