Clampdown on Sunday Igboho, others won’t quell agitation – group

The leadership of Kiriji Heritage Defenders on Saturday advised those behind the effort to clamp down on voices agitating for good governance and better security in the Yorubaland to have a rethink, saying the use of force would not silence the race.

Speaking at the Kiriji Battlefield, Imesi-Ile, Osun State, shortly after his investiture as Aareogun Kiriji, Chief Alebiosu Kalaowo said the group would collaborate with others with similar interests to ensure maximum security across the Yorubaland.

Kalaowo said the siege on the Yorubaland by armed bandits, with conventional security outfits appearing overwhelmed, had made it necessary for the people to rise to the occasion and complement government’s efforts.
