The South-West Security Stakeholders Group (SSSG) has alerted that state governments and general Public of a planned attack on the zone by bandits.
The group, after an emergency meeting in Lagos on Friday, warned bandits and those described as bad elements to stay away from the South-West region or face the wrath of the group.
In a statement jointly signed by the convener and the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, and the secretary, Alhaji Owolabi Amusat, the group said there were feelings that bandits had perfected plans to strike in the South- West.
“On this note, the SSSG has considered it necessary to beef up security operations in our region. And we charge the police and other security outfits, across the region to remain vigilant in ensuring that the region is safe. Any attempt to invade the South-West will bring about both economic and political doom,” the statement noted.
The group also dismissed Shehu Gumi’s visit to Igboho town, saying it was an attempt to mock and undermine the efforts of Yoruba activists and freedom fighters.
