A Fulani herdsman was reportedly caught spying on some Yoruba Kings and traditionalists during a meeting earlier today in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The meeting was convened to address the rising cases of insecurity in the SouthWest region and was organised by the Chief Taiye Ayorinde-led Yoruba World Assembly and Secretary-General, Dr Victor Taiwo.
According to sources, the meeting which attracted a large crowd from Oyo, Osun, Lagos, Ondo, Ekiti and Ogun States including Kings and traditionalists, was held at the Western Hall, Parliament Building Secretariat Ibadan.
However, things took a different turn after a suspected Fulani was caught recording videos of the meeting but took to his heels as soon as he was detected.
This development was said to have drawn the anger of Sango worshippers, hunters who rained curses on him.
His Royal Majesty, Oba Moses Oladejo Oyediran, Ogunsua of Modakeke was just about to drop the microphone when one of the organizers announced the presence of the herder.
He said, “We just discovered that a Fulani herder had just spied on us at this meeting. He had recorded all the proceedings and when he noticed he had been detected, he ran away”.
“All the traditionalists here, you saw what happened. You should do the needful. We didn’t invite him”.
Speaking earlier in the meeting, Oba Oyediran had called on all traditionalists to put their ‘resources’ together to fight the common enemy.
“We are the powers that our forefathers left for us. When these powers are there, why then should these aliens trample upon us? They came to us with sticks, clubs. If it was in the olden days, Oro would come out.
“Let all the traditionalists come together; combine their powers to fight the common enemy,” he said.
