A renowned historian, Professor Banji Akintoye, has alerted the Southwest governors over what he described as a looming danger in the region. Akintoye, the leader of Ilana Omo Oodua, revealed that terrorists had invaded Yorubaland.
Akintoye urged the governors to be vigilant and wake up to secure the region from being captured by foreign invaders.
In what he described as an alert to the Yoruba people at home and in the diaspora, Professor Akintoye noted that danger is looming in Nigeria.
Meanwhile, Akintoye said, he had earlier sent a very desperate letter to the six Governors of the Southwest to alert them about the impending escalation of the ongoing invasion of the Yorubaland.
According to him, the combination of Fulani terrorists, Boko Haram and ISIS, has occupied Niger State, which would provide easy access to the southwest region through Kwara Kogi States.
Akintoye further referred to the statement issued by the US, warning that ISIS has infiltrated Southern Nigeria from the sea.
He urged all the Southwest Governors to come together to give the needed response to the danger that threatens to engulf the region.
Akintoye noted that the hugely symbolic Cocoa House in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, would be the immediate targets of the invaders.
He advised the southwest governors to learn lessons from what Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has done in the State.
