Aareonakakanfo raises anti-insecurity team in Osogbo

Yesterday, the Aareonakakanfo of Yoruba land, Gani Adams inaugurated the Oodua Dependable Security Team in Osogbo, the Osun State capital during which he declared that the era of insecurity in the South-west is over.

At the inauguration and verification exercise of the team in the state, Adams stated that the device is an intervention strategy to nip the security challenges in the bud across the southwest region.

He pointed out that the new arrangement became necessary as a result of the various cases of insecurity including raping, killings and kidnapping, which, he said, had hindered peace and tranquility across the region.

Aare said, “We are worried that the security situation in the south west is getting worse by the day.We are worried that peace has eluded us in recent time because of the spate of insecurity across the southwest.

“It was not like this in the past.
We had it so good in the past.Our security then was fantastic. Issues of Killings and kidnapping for ransom were alien to our tradition in the south west.

“Our leaders prominently cater to our needs,in education, health and all the social facilities were available for the people.Those were the legacies of the late chief Obafemi Awolowo,when the people of the region can sleep with our eyes opened.

“But things took a drastic turn today because politicians of today clearly abandoned their responsibilities and create a huge gap between them and the electorates.

“And it is a fact that if the situation continues like this,it will definitely consume the entire nation.Nigeria has lost the battle and I don’t think this country could survive the next two years under this failed security challenges.

He recalled that the same exercise had been held in Lagos, Ogun, Oyo States, adding that other states in the region would have their turns at a later date.

“Over 100 members were drawn from each of the 69 Local Government and LCDAs in Osun state and it is their job to assist by complementing the efforts of the police and other security agencies in securing the state,” he explained.

Coordinator of the OPC in Osun, State, Prince Adedeji Aladesawe applauded the leadership acumen of the Aareonakakanfo for his timely intervention in securing the state.

He informed that the new team would help the state in ensuring effective security.

Aladesewa added, “The meeting today is a good testimony of our leader’s timely effort and intervention at curtailing the security scourge in the south west.And as Aare had said in his speech to our people in Osun that the era of insecurity in the south west and Osun state is gone.
