OPC leader, Gani Adams

Adams said OPC will not involve itself in helping to secure the South-West from the attack of the herdsmen.

The OPC leader also said his men lost the interest to protect the Yorubas, due to various derogatory remarks people have made about the group.

Adams chided traditional rulers in the South-West, saying “When one is too fanatic in religion, it brings shame, religion is good, but when it becomes fanatic, it brings ridicule.

“If we are being moderate in our religions in Yoruba land, be it Christian, Muslim or traditional religions, who dare bring attack into our communities?”

Adams said this at a lecture organised by the Ondo state chapter of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), tagged: Herdmen/ Fulani clashes : what implication for inter- Ethnic relations/ Nigerian Economy.

He also said his men have been branded thugs, bandits, criminals, touts and terrorists by the Yoruba people.

Recently, Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state, banned Fulani herdsmen from grazing in the state.
