The Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), has condemned what it called unwarranted attacks on Yorubaland and its people as well as other non-indigenous inhabitants by Fulani herdsmen and Niger-Delta militants, warning that the openness and hospitality of the race should not be misconstrued for docility.
The OPC, in a statement signed by the spokesperson of its National Coordinating Council (NCC), Comrade Sina Akinpelu, said it was  ready to match force with force if that should be the only solution to the incessant attacks on Yorubaland.
The group however said ‘enough is enough’ adding that the Yoruba people are peace loving and accommodating people which has led to the towns and cities grow in leaps and bounds.
“The openness and hospitality of the race should not be misconstrued for docility,” the statement remarked.
The group  called on the attackers and those that are aspiring to attack Yorubaland or its interests to have a rethink, stating that there would be immediate and far-reaching reprisals, the type of which is imagined than experienced.
Akinpelu stated further that while the group recognized the right of all people to self-determination, it also believed that such right should not infringe on the rights of others, particularly the peace-loving and amiable Yoruba people. 
He appealed to Northern and Niger-Delta elders and leaders to call their people to order, insisting that no group or race has monopoly of violence.
