OPC decries ceaseless ‘kidnapping, robbery’

The Ogun State chapter of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) on Tuesday decried what it called unabated kidnapping, raping and robbery in some parts of the state.

The group alleged that criminal herdsmen were behind the recent kidnapping incidents and banditry attacks in some parts of the state and vowed “to vehemently resist all attempts by usurpers to forcefully take over our land or displace our people for their selfish ethnocentric agenda.”

The group in a statement signed by the State Coordinator, Adesina Jimoh, in Abeokuta, said the security agencies had failed in protecting the people and bringing the menace to a permanent halt.

The OPC vowed to do everything possible to fight bandits and criminal herdsmen “who on a daily basis kidnapped, raped and slaughtered our people like rams.”
