Yewa group lambasts Ogun govt over comment on Farmers/Herders crisis in Ogun West

Yewa North Patriotic Forum (YNPF) has lambasted Ogun state government for denying reports of people in Ogun West relocating to neighbouring Benin Republic due to the herdsmen attacks in some part of Yewa North.

The Ogun State Government had on Monday debunked reports being circulated in some news media that people affected by herdsmen attacks in some parts of Yewa North and Imeko-Afon Local Government Areas have fled their communities to seek refuge in the neighboring Republic of Benin.

According to the Chairman, Ogun State Peace Keeping Committee on Farmers/Herders Conflict, Kayode Oladele, the purported movement of the people was that of those who were not actual inhabitants of the communities, but those who came from the neighbouring country to lease farmlands in the area.

Oladele claimed that, there was no crisis in Yewaland that would necessitate the people of the state becoming refugees in another country. 

But the group in a press statement issued in Abeokuta on Monday by its President, Omobolaji Oluwafisayomi Sanni insisted farmers in the crisis ridden zone have taken to their heels to take refuge in Benin Republic.

According to him, the development resulted in turning down the state government palliatives, saying their lives were more important than the bags of rice.

The group described Oladele as agent of confusion who misinform Governor Abiodun on the true position of things in the zone. 

They however vowed to blacklist Oladele's name if reversal of the lies was not done. 

"In the statement, the government through their satanic servant said there is no crisis in YEWA land that will necessitate that our people to become refugees in another country.

"Meanwhile, while The PUNCH came to our local government for an on the spot assessment of the havoc wrecked by the Fulani herdsmen as well see the true situation of things, Even the Eselu of Iselu land confirmed that the residents were not available to take the Greek gifts of the government when it was brought to them adding that the people said the prefer to be slaves in another man’s land than to die in their land due to high level of insecurity. 

"In turn, Oladele has called our royal father a liar and the god of Yewa-land shall respond to him in due time. 

"The truth is that, many farmers in our axis have taken to their heels to take refuge in Benin Republic and they have also shunned the state government palliatives as their lives are more important to them than bags of rice. 

"The government through their irresponsible representative, Oladele,  have gone overboard and the gods of Yewaland shall fight them to a standstill. 

"Many times we have noticed that many aides in this government are not through representatives but agent of confusion to the Governor, at different times they feed the Governor with lies and on this we shall repel this bazzuker of lies. 

"Good for us as indigenes, we now know our enemies that lives with us.

"In the press report that the government is reacting to, names were mentioned including pregnant women, but this committee didn’t go to this people instead they chose to lie, If a reversal of this naked lie is not written, we shall register Oladele’s name in our black book as Youths in YEWA north local government."
