The Yoruba Socio- Political group , AFENIFERE, on Tuesday berated the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on his comment in New York that the kidnapping stories in Nigeria are false and were being fueled by politics.
The group had consequently described him as a disgrace to the Yoruba race by his “opportunistic and provocative utterances”
At the group’s monthly meeting in Akure, Ondo state, the national leader of the group, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, lamented that the region is still under siege and they were been overwhelmed by reports of people being traumatized by Fulani herdsmen, kidnappers, militia in the six states of the zone including Kwara and Kogi States.
The National Publicity Secretary, Yinka Odumakin, in a communique issued after their monthly meeting said that:
“All the reports provided clear indications of failure of state as the security forces have largely incapable or unwilling to safeguard the lives of our people against these Criminals.”
“We are not aware of any of them that has been arrested or is under trial at the moment just as all the Federal Government has done so far is to make excuses for the Boko Haram and Miyetti Allah groups that have been accused of so many crimes against the people of Nigeria.”
