A traditionalist, the Obalesu Obatala Agbaye, Olaolu Dada, has said that a pan-Yoruba group known as , “Irorun Ile Kaaro-oo-jiire” will explore its spiritual powers to provide adequate security for the lives and property of Nigerians. He said this at a news conference at Obatala temple in Igbotapa area of Ile-Ife on Saturday.
While speaking on the rising spate of insecurity in the country, Dada noted that barely a day passes without reports of kidnapping, banditry, armed robbery and other forms of insecurity across the country. He said it was therefore pertinent to use spiritual powers to deliver the nation from the impending disaster.
He said the powers used by our forefathers in the past was still potent and said the group was ready to use it to deliver Nigerians from insecurity threatening it’s peace and unity. The group also said it would collaborate with other security agencies to tackle the lingering security challenge in the country.
The group which denied affiliations with any agitations for a sovereign Yoruba or any political interest said it was determined to rise up and fight criminality in the country “without the use of gun and cutlasses”.
The group called for the support of the Federal Government, South-West governors, royal fathers, philanthropists, traditionalists and other stakeholders for the group to achieve its objectives of ensuring peace and stability of the nation’s democracy .
