South-West govs organising personal security agents – Gani Adams


The Aare-Ona Kakanfo, the Yoruba generalissimo, Gani Adams, said some South-West governors are presently recruiting private individuals to form state security apparatus without seeking his support.

Adams stated this while speaking with journalists in Ilorin during sensitisation programme on security for members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), condemned the action, describing it as unacceptable.

“Do you know that some South-West governors are recruiting their political errand boys for security purposes without consulting me or the OPC anymore. And when the issue of security threats come, they’ll remember to call the Aare-Ona Kakanfo to come and intervene. I’m not getting salary from government, but I’ve been using my money to run this position and our money for this organisation,” he said.
