Yoruba Appraisal Forum, YAF, has challenged security agencies to unmask both the local and foreign sponsors behind the agitators for Yoruba self-determination and punish them accordingly.
The group also urged the police authorities to take appropriate and urgent steps to deal decisively with the elements who are bent on fomenting trouble in the South-West, adding that it was imperative the police and other security agencies take appropriate actions against them to nip their evil plans in the bud.
In a statement signed by YAF National Coordinator, Adeshina Animashaun, the group warned that the recent violence arising from the activities of these self-styled Yoruba freedom fighters, especially the rash of threats to some other Nigerians residing in Yoruba land by certain individuals, was just the onset of the large scale and widespread violence already scheduled by those planning the eventual disintegration and dismemberment of the Nigerian nation, with the South-West as their launchpad.
“Intelligence reports at our disposal have indicated that the masterminds of this violence are bent on throwing Nigeria into total chaos to hasten the collapse of governments at both the state and Federal levels to enable them to execute their evil plans for Nigeria.
They are planning to take advantage of the current security challenges in the country to wreak further havoc, starting with the South-West and expecting to instigate reprisals against Southerners in the North with the ultimate objective of destabilizing the country.
We have it on good authority that they have begun to mobilize youths in the region for more violent protests and bloody confrontation with government and security agents, all in their bid to raise tension and create a violent atmosphere for them to take over the properties of non-Yoruba living in the South-West, especially those of the Igbo and Hausa/ Fulani. Their current ethnic profiling of Northerners and campaigns of calumny against Nigerians of the Fulani ethnic stock is aimed at achieving their evil plans.
This is most irresponsible, reprehensible and unpatriotic! The police authorities and other security agencies must act now and waste no time in going after these hoodlums masquerading as freedom fighters in the South-West,” the group stated.
