  • Ooni Of Ife reveals position on Ruga settlements
  • Oba Ogunwusi speaks on Fulani herdsmen attacks

Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife in Osun State, says he and other traditional leaders were working with Federal Government led President Muhammadu Buhari to deal with the menace of violent herdsmen.

36naija.com reports that the Ooni of Ife made this statement in a chat with journalists on Sunday, August 18 in Canada, at the end of his official visit to the country.

The Ooni of Ife was honoured and presented a key to the city of Brampton in Toronto by the Mayor, Patrick Brown.

Speaking on the killings carried out by suspected Fulani herdsmen in South-West, the Ooni said that the emphasis should be on bad Fulani people.

According to him,

”The bad herdsmen are the one to be dealt with. Even the president has been trying to separate the good ones from the bad ones. We are glad that they have been trying to proffer solution to what is going on.

“We are working closely with the Federal Government, and we are letting them know that it is a collective problem. If there is no adequate security, there won’t be any investment.”

Speaking On the Ruga settlement controversy in the country the Ooni said,

“Nobody is supporting RUGA; as said earlier, the president said the issue would be discussed better at the appropriate time.

“We should not allow something that would cause problem in the future. We are all Nigerians; if you want RUGA, individuals should go and get land.

“Igbos have investments in Yorubaland; Yorubas also have investments in Igboland. Yorubas have investment in the North; they did not do it for free; the Northerners also have investment in Yorubaland”.
