Prove to Nigerians you don’t support criminality, Akeredolu tells Buhari: Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
Speaking on the Yoruba rights activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho, Akeredolu described him as ” a child of circumstance, and we must look at the circumstances that led to his intervention.“I do not support people taking law into their hands. I do not support illegality. Those circumstances might not be legal, but when you look at it, you’ll know we are a child of circumstance.”
The Ondo state governor said most of the criminal herdsmen caught in Ondo State were speaking “Fulfude”.“Essentially in Ondo State is our discovery of criminal herdsmen who were using our forest reserve to perpetrate crimes and we said look we cannot stay by and watch things happen this way.“People were kidnapped. We’ve been debriefed by all of them, and we know people who took them.“If you’re not licensed to be in the forest, then you’ll be taken to be doing illegal ventures, that’s where we stand.“My duty does not include profiling those who come into the country, but all I know is that those perpetrating these crimes speak a common language.“Whether they are foreigners or from here, it is a matter of police to go after them and identify them..“What we had from those who have been debriefed is that they spoke the language that were clear to them.“Most of them were speaking Fulfulde and that is clear, this is a common language spoken across the length and breadth particularly in West Africa and some part of North Africa, so how did they come here?
