The armed men who invaded the church in Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s country home in Volkswagen Golf 4 fired randomly into the church at 11:15 a.m., during the height of the service, while others stationed themselves at the church’s entrance to prevent the congregation from fleeing.

Prof. Banji Akintoye, the leader of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, has condemned the attack, stating that such an incident cannot occur again.

Akintoye stated, “The arrogance of the Fulani marauders must be confronted openly and with courage to demonstrate to their sponsors that the Yoruba people cannot be intimidated or subjugated.”

In a statement headed “ is a declaration of war against Yoruba people – Akintoye,” the leader of the Ilana group demanded that Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu proclaim an emergency against the activities of Fulani herdsmen in the state with immediate effect.

The Statement reads,

“We have repeatedly indicated that the Yoruba must negotiate their separation from Nigeria as a matter of urgency, but our political actors in Yorubaland have never taken us seriously.

We warned them that there was a fire on the mountain, but they mocked us due to their egotism.

“Today, we have all been surrounded, particularly in Lagos. Herdsmen’s audacity in bombing a church in Yorubaland in an attempt to kill people demonstrates that we are now facing a real threat.

“My urgent advice to Governor Akeredolu is to accept the challenge and declare an emergency against all Fulani herdsmen’s activities in the state with immediate effect.

We are currently taken for granted. We no longer need to act. We must unanimously demand a withdrawal from Nigeria.

“We, the Yoruba people, cannot coexist with those whose conception of Nigerian citizenship is to brutalize, oppress, and even exterminate us.
