Senator Adeola Condemns Fulani Herdsmen Attacks On Yewaland In Ogun

...Urges FG, State Govt To Protect Yewa People From Killer Herdsmen


From Jane Okafor, Abuja

Senator Solomon Adeola has lend his voice to the righteous condemnation of the invasion, destruction and killings of indigenes of Yewaland by people identified as Fulani herdsmen.

In a statement issued in Abuja over the weekend by Chief Kayode Odunaro, his Media Adviser, Senator Adeola stated that having waited in vain for over two weeks for government positive action against what were clearly criminal acts of arson and murders, he has now decided to call on the Federal Government and the Ogun State Government to rise up to its constitutional obligations of protecting the lives and properties of all Nigerians particularly the peace loving people of Yewaland in Ogun State.

The chairman Senate Committee on Finance  who is a prominent indigene of Yewaland, noted that attacks occasioning several deaths and destruction of properties had occurred in Yewa North, Imeko Afon, Ipokia and Yewa South LGAs in recent weeks without the authorities taking proactive steps to stem the tide.

"I recalled that at various occasions on the floor of the Senate I contributed to debates on the deteriorating security situation in different parts of the country and was always agitating for restructuring of the security architecture of the country. 

I made a similar contribution to a Senate wide motion on general security only last week. Now something specific must be done urgently to stop the arson and killings in Yewaland by relevant authorities and security agencies" he stated.

He noted that he is aware that the State Government set up a special committee on the recent ugly situation in Yewaland and elsewhere in the state, stressing that the body needs to urgently turn in a workable report/solution to the Government to stem the spate of arson and killing against his people in Yewaland.

"Let it be stated that as a representative of the people sworn to uphold the constitution and the laws of the land including the right to self defence, I will not hesitate to join my people in the defense of their rights to life, property and peaceful coexistence with others at the back of seeming failure of duly constituted authorities to defend such fundamental rights against anyone or forces" he stated.
