“While using this medium to caution all Hausa Fulani leaders to rise in support of the Yoruba now, if they desire assured peaceful cohesiveness and coexistence in the Yoruba Land.
“However, in as much as we are constrained to react out of profused provocative stands of one Miss Hauwa daughter of the Seriki Fulani of Kishi threatening that they own the President of Nigeria, nor do Yoruba brought Land from heaven
“Furthermore, stating vulgar words against Chief Sunday Igboho, we demand for immediate retraction and urgent caution against any similar occurrence of unwarranted killings in the whole of Yoruba land henceforth, while advising all Kara markets cohabited by Fulani conclaves in Kishi, Igangan, Ibarapa and other areas of Oyo State to shut down till all investigation and unravelling of all terrorists perpetrating evils within the region is optimally achieved respectively.
“It is important we Yoruba work in unison on holistic security management, because what one body or person does unilaterally,could grossly affects the whole of Yoruba land, hence the need to collectively build unbiased synergy and unity towards total liberalisation of the Yoruba Land.
“We keenly watched the trending video of how Fulani terrorist herders killed, rape and maim our people, continuous criminal activities of kidnapping with huge ransom paid daily remains precariously unending menace.
“We are aghast to state that this evil marauders at will gruesomely killed countless numbers of our people daily, for instance they recently killed a medical Doctor and philanthropist business investor from Germany on his farm just because he cautioned against massive destruction of his farm land, and the following day they slit his throat with daggers and shot him dead.
“It is based on this extreme necessity that we supports the ongoing efforts of Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho on his clarion call for vacation, while the Igbimo Apapo Yoruba Lagbaye eqaully call for an harmonized 7 days vacation ultimatum notice against all forms of criminalities in the whole of Yoruba Land: Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Ekiti, Lagos, Edo, Delta, Kwara and Kogi and other nexus Yoruba group areas in the Northern and Southern regions of Nigeria respectively.
“Particularly, we emphatically warn against the confrontational attrition of war led by the Fulani communities in Kishi and other identified bandits occupants accused of kidnapping and maiming of innocent Nigerians.
“It was seen in the trending video how the Fulani youths brought out guns to attack Chief Sunday Igboho led team during the warning peaceful rally, but later ran into the bush paths of Igangan town.
“In view of the good intention to clear Yoruba Land of all debris of criminals and terrorists, it is also imminent to act cautiously, inorder not to violate the fundamental rights of fellow Nigerians, which could snowballed into a huge unmitigated civil ethnic unrest and volcanic war.
“We hereby call on Chief Sunday Sunday Igboho and other leaders of Thought in Yoruba Land to convene an emergency security and intelligence Committees, that will aggressively avert, abate, manage and bring under control the ongoing provoking internal security infractions in Yoruba Land, especially Oyo State.
“We equally call on the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government of Nigeria alongside all the State Governors to rise up to their responsibilities of building a strong public confidence and thrust, most importantly, we demand for a state of emergency in the Nigeria’s Security and Socio-Economic sectors.

“Inorder not to fall out of the law, we appeal to our noble legal icon, Chief Afe Babalola, SAN to lead a formidable Legal team of erudite Yoruba Lawyers that will continue to work assiduously and brace up for any eventuality.
“Also, in the same vein we urgently appeal to His Divine Grace, Oba Isooro O.O.O Dada, Obalesun Obatala Agbaye to lead all traditional spiritual and terrestrial leaders in Yoruba Land and beyond for an emergency intercessory prayers, appeasement and invocation of the Yoruba mythology and spirituality, conspicuously expected to lead to the total atonement, unity, economic growth, social wellbeing and peace in Yoruba Land, and by extension Nigeria as a whole.

“Lastly, the entire Yoruba Women and Youths must play active and positive roles in this fight against terrorism, hence the need for Aare Oladotun Hassan,Esq to consult with all the umbrella youths and students bodies in Yoruba Land, for maximum outputs on information and intelligence sharing, building strong alliances with all other youth groups domiciled in Yoruba Land towards attaining overall collective successes.
“In view of the ongoing long war against terrorism, we are in doubt of the the will power to forcefully and effectively deliver on the promises to end terrorism in Nigeria, considering the high level of complicity going on within the military’s highest echelons.

Gen. Tukur Buratai led Nigerian Army, just because he raised fundamental objections against the compromised modus operandi in the endless war in Sambisa tagged “Operation Lafiya Dole”, and other ancillary casualties and respected and experienced officers in like manners ,who died in a clandestine most crooked and suspiciously wicked manner in the line of duty.

“We demand adequate funding for our local security Networks led by Amotekun, Vigilante, OPC, OLM, YCY, Agbekoya and other security agencies of government, while we implore that Chief Sunday Igboho needed to be encouraged and drafted to lead the whole of the coalition of all Yoruba local security Civilian Joint Task Force Base, to be headquartered in Ibadan, Oyo State.
