The Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Gani Adams, has urged Governors Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun) and Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos) to allow the newly inaugurated Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, team and the South-West Security Stakeholders Group, SSSG, to flush out kidnappers and bandits operating along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Aare Adams, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media Kehinde Aderemi, expressed concern over the incessant attacks on travellers plying the road.

He said since the police had failed to honour the earlier arrangements to provide effective security along the road, it is pertinent to ask the governors to allow the OPC, Amotekun and other security groups like the Hunters, Vigilante, COMSAIC, Isokan Oodua under the auspices of the SSSG to get rid of terrorists from the bushes.
Expressing worry over the spate of insecurity along the road, Adams stated that the only way out of the quagmire is to allow the OPC to face the battle for the restoration of peace along the road.
He said, “There has been an abnormal surge in cases of kidnapping along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
“The information at my disposal indicates the surge in the number of terrorists and kidnappers hiding at Sapade, a 62 km town to Ibadan.
