The Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, has vowed to join forces with the Military in a bid to combat militants who are unleashing terror on the people of Lagos State.
A statement by the Publicity Secretary of the Gani Adams-led OPC, Yinka Oguntimehin, said: “We are taking no more chances.
“I think our tolerance has been mistaken for cowardice and it is time to act.
“Now we are ready to join hands with the relevant Nigerian forces to smoke out all militants that have constituted themselves as be the tail troubling the dog of Lagosians all these while.
“We have already moved into action and they shall all be smoked out and dealt with in no time.”
The group gave the position following the recent increase in the activities of Militants in Lagos State which had led to the death of some of its members and abduction of an Army Lieutenant.
Just few weeks ago, the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, signed into law a bill stipulating death penalty and life imprisonment for kidnappers.
While igning into law, “The Prohibition of the Act of Kidnapping” Ambode had said it would address the issue of insecurity in the state.
