3. Yoruba group sends message to federal government:
The coalition of Southwest groups under the aegis of the Yoruba Appraisal Forum YAF has called on the Federal and security agencies in the country to take quick action to stop alleged plans by some insiders to launch series of attacks on security personnel in the southern part of the country.
The group alleged that it had uncovered plans by some so-called activists and secessionist agitators in the South-West “making efforts to replicate and inflict the same level of violence being visited on the people of the South-East and South-South states on our peace-loving people in Yorubaland.”
