In his words, Governor Akeredolu said “we are part of this country and we have always come to this country in peace and we have maintained peace.

“It is a dreadful assault. I said to people that if we were at war and we were armed and faced ourselves, in one day 40 people would not die from our side. But this is not war, we were not
at war.

“This is an assault on us, on our psyche. We cannot continue this way. We believe in this place, we believe in the Southwestern region. We believe in Yoruba. Is Yoruba part of Nigeria we believe in? Yes”.
