Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has disclosed that suspected bandits’ leader, Iskilu Wakili who was recently captured by a joint team of security operatives in Oyo State is not a Nigerian.
According to Fani-Kayode in a series of tweets from his Twitter account on Monday, Wakili is one of the notorious foreign herdsmen terrorizing Nigeria.
He also revealed that Wakili’s son, identified as Abu was responsible for the recent death of at least 10 persons and urged security operatives to arrest him also.
The former Aviation Minister however congratulated the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land, Chief Gani Adams and other OPC members for the succssful capture of Wakili whom he described as the godfather of terrorism in the southwest.
He demanded that Wakili be charged to court as soon as possible as all OPC members arrested in connection with his capture be released immediately.
He wrote; “I congratulate my friend & brother, Iba Gani Adams, the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland & the OPC for the successful capture of Wakili, one of the most barbaric & notorious foreign Fulani terrorists & cold-blooded killers, in the country. This is the way forward. Kudos!”
“There is no doubt that the newly captured Wakili is the godfather of terrorism in the SW. However, the enforcer & “hard man” of his terrorist cell is his son whose name is Abu. Abu killed 10 innocent souls 3 days ago and Chief Sunday Adeyemo (Sunday Igboho), who was utterly enraged and who sent pictures of their bodies to me one hour after they were murdered. I forwarded same to my friend & brother Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state who not only forwarded them to the IGP in my precence but also called him and briefed him.”
“The IGP assured him that he would take necessary action & look into the matter. Sadly this morning, after the arrest of his father yesterday,Abu has killed 4 more innocent & defenceless souls. This is unacceptable. The boy is just a heartless & vicious beast & worse of all he is not even a Nigerian. He, like his father Wakili together with most of the terrorists in our land, is a FOREIGN Fulani & not a local one. I hereby call on the authorities to locate, arrest & prosecute Wakili’s son, Abu, immediately or better still shoot him on sight.”
“I also call on them to charge Wakili to court as soon as possible & ensure that he is brought to justice for his horrendous crimes against the people of Ibarapa, Oyo state & the South West.”
“Finally, I call for the immediate release of the OPC heroes who arrested the monster.”
Meanwhile, the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has reacted to the arrest of Wakili on Sunday and the developments that have followed his capture.
The Governor on Monday disclosed that he is aware of all developments concerning the arrest of the suspected Fulani warlord.
Makinde also noted in a statement on Twitter where he reacted to the development that the interest of the people of Oyo will be protected in the matter.
The Governor who added that he is aware of steps already taken by the police on the matter, appealed to the people of Oyo to remain peaceful and go about their legitimate businesses.
