The leader of the Yoruba World Congress, Emeritus Prof. Banji Akintoye, has described a recent statement credited to the National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Bodejo, as filthy vituperations which should be ignored by any Nigerian with a sense of decency.
The Director of Communications, YWC, Mr Moses Jolayemi, in a statement on Tuesday, said the sponsors of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore were calling for war.
“Ordinarily, the YWC would not respond to such imbecilities but considering the fact that the fellow in question may not be acting alone, we have decided to send him back to his masters that no part of Yorubaland will be ceded to any Fulani marauders under any guise and for any reason,” the statement said.
Akintoye in the statement said the Yoruba nation would resist every attempt by “a small, ignoble clique of feudal jingoists” to foist themselves on the rest of the country or annex the Southwest.
He said, “If other tribes so desire, they can allow their inheritance and indeed their ancestry to be obliterated by these elements who are clandestinely carrying out a carefully mapped ethnic cleansing agenda. But for the Yoruba, such ambition can only remain a mere dream.”
