The Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in Oyo State has slammed controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi, over his visit to Igboho town in Oyo State.
Gumi alongside the former Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Health Insurance Scheme, Usman Yusuf, had visited the town, calling on Yoruba Nation agitators to shelve their agitation for secession.
The town is the adopted home of the embattled jailed Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
Speaking to newsmen, the coordinator of the OPC in Oyo State, Rotimi Olumo described Gumi’s visit to Igboho as an affront to the entire Yoruba nation.
According to him, Gumi outstepped his boundary, warning that the cleric should steer clear of all parts of the South-Western region of Yoruba land.
He said Gumi’s visit poses a big security threat to the entire Yoruba nation because they did not see any reason or interest it serves, rather than to make a mockery of the people in the South West.
Olumi noted that it should be remembered that he was the one who raised the alarm that there were plans to invade Igangan and other parts of Ibarapa by bandits, which eventually took place, and that the visit of Gumi to Igboho called for concern.
He called for adequate vigilance from the people of the entire South-West, saying Gumi could not be trusted.
The OPC argued that Gumi’s visit to the region was suspicious, as it was being insinuated that he could have come as a spy for bandits.
