The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, has warned governors in the south-west region against providing land for herdsmen to breed cattle.
Adams on Thursday at the South West Security Summit held in Ibadan, Oyo State, called the governors by their names and asked them to be proactive about the issue.
The monarch rebuked the governors for ignoring his letters and calls to take proactive steps on the matter.
“Nobody can take Yoruba land or constitute nuisance in south-west because Yoruba have been living peacefully for the past 120 years, so the incursion of criminally-minded people will no longer be accepted.
“History will not forgive any south-west governor that gives land to herdsmen for the breeding of their cattle because the issue of insecurity is now overwhelming.
“We are not only talking about south-west alone, we are talking about everywhere Yoruba live, including Kogi and Kwara states. All hands must be on deck to curb insecurity because the progress of Yoruba land should be a collective effort of all of us,” Adams said.
