Traditional Worshippers in Oyo State have laid curses on those behind the Tuesday killing of some #EndSARS protesters at Lekki, Lagos State and other parts of the country.
The worshippers, in a statement jointly signed by the president, Dasola Adefabi; Secretary, Dr. Fayemi Fakayode; Àràbà of Ìbàdàn land – Chief Ifalere Odegbola; Baálẹ̀ Yemoja of Ìbàdàn, Chief Omikunmi Egbelade, and the Ariwo of Ogbomoso, Chief Akanni Adedeji, made available to journalists on Friday, described the action as regrettable.
The statement issued at the Ose-Meji Temple in Ibadan read that “It is regrettable that President Buhari remained unyielding despite calls from all corners of the country for him to change his style of governance and use of religion and ethnicity to divide the citizens.
“The emergency meeting was as a result of calls from all traditionalists in the state for a solution to the current impasse in the country. Members resolved at the end of the meeting of notable Ifá and Òrìṣà priests that a strong curse be laid on those responsible for the killing of peaceful protesters across the country.
“It was a sad day for Nigerians. Those who killed innocent Nigerians to defend our oppressors or for whatever reason will never see and experience peace in their lives. The national broadcast made by the President has eased the tension in the land even though it came late and failed to recognise that people were killed at Lekki in Lagos.
“The broadcast would start yielding positive fruits if all promised are manifesting in people’s lives and in the nation’s economy, else it might make Nigerians see the leadership as unyielding despite the international outcry.
“Rebuilding of all national and state’s facilities that were vandalized or destroyed should be prioritised and businesses should be back to normal so that we may start a new lease of life.
“We urge President Muhammadu Buhari to make good use of this historical phase of our lives and make tangible corrections wherever they are needed.”
It urged the 36 state governors to ensure the security of lives and property in their respective states from killing by sponsored thugs.0 Post Views
