Protect Your Territories With Supernatural Powers – Ooni To S’West Monarchs

 

 

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has urged traditional rulers in Yoruba land not to abandon the use of supernatural power in protecting themselves and territories against attacks by bandits.

 

This was disclosed yesterday during the maiden edition of Yoruba Security Summit held as a result of insecurity in the Southwest and killings of royal fathers in Ekiti and Kwara states.

 

The monarch warned traditional rulers not interested in supernatural power to vacate the throne.

“Any Oba who is disinterested in Yoruba culture and custom should abdicate his throne for anyone who is deeply versed and interested in Yoruba traditions,” he said.

The communique said: “Yoruba people should take full control of their forests, homelands and farmlands.

 

“Amotekun Corps should be strengthened in terms of motivation, finances, training and retraining of personnel and that those who are familiar with nooks and crannies of our forests should be recruited into the Amotekun Corps.

 

“The Yoruba, especially traditional rulers, should make recourse to their natural resources, including natural powers, to combat banditry and kidnapping; that Yoruba Obas should not jettison traditional values.

“The entire Obas in Yorubaland should work in unison to ward off the evils of banditry and kidnappings, as each of the states can only succeed in chasing the marauders to another state.

 

“Southwest governors should organize Regional Security Summit at the earliest practicable time, including all stakeholders to chart the way forward and give teeth to all the concerns raised at this summit.
