Members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in Kwara State yesterday asked security agencies to ensure the safety of the national president of the organisation, Otunba Gani Adams, saying recent alleged plans to deal with Adams by some politicians was serious cause for concern.
According to a statement, by the Kwara state coordinator of the body, Salam Maruff Olarewaju, the call became necessary following widespread reports that some people have volunteered to work and remove Adams from his position as leader of the OPC, a move the statement said could precipitate crisis in the South-West region.
Comrade Olarewaju said members of the organisation had refused to give serious attention to an earlier rumour to remove Adams early in May because there was nothing to indicate a sinister motive against Adams but that with the recent facts now available on the alleged plans, it was necessary to warn those who might want to be used to desist from it.
Part of the statement read: “It is no news that the South-West has been enjoying peace, harmony and progress for some years now and people see the zone as a crisis-free region but these elements of destruction are about to turn it to the zone of crisis and anarchy if they are not curbed.
“We recall the first, second and third republics came to an end in Nigeria because of crisis in the South-West. The same thing may repeat itself if these elements are not checkmated.
“We are using this medium to alert the world, human rights watch groups, the Federal Government and all security agencies in Nigeria that if anything ungodly happens to the person of Otunba Gani Adams, it will definitely lead to serious crisis that the government may not be able to contain and it will turn the entire South-West to a dangerous zone.”
