According to Olumo WAKILI, a Fulani man had constituted himself as stronghold which Nigerian security operatives dare not entered his domain.
We in the OPC seeing this, volunteered to go into the forest as a sort of assistance to the police and we went there successfully to arrest him. We handed him to the police.
We, however were surprised that the police turned around to pounce upon three of our members who had gone to honour the invitations extended to them by the 👮.
Olumo said that it has come to the knowledge of OPC that WAKILI will soon be released From custody.

OPC like any other organization in Yoruba land. Even majority of Nigerians are aware that the government’s at the center is practicing nepotism where the Fulani’s are shown today be superior to other ethnic groups. We want the Government to do property investigation .

We want Oyo State Government and traditional rulers in the south West to intervain in this matter
