Insecurity: Youths Protest In Ibadan, Warn Buhari Of Interethnic Conflict by Elemosho478: 9:59am On Jul 28, 2019
Scores of youths on Saturday protested the insecurity in the South-West and warned President Muhammadu Buhari of imminent interethnic wars.

The youth from three different socio-cultural groups: South-West Youth Movement, Yoruba Koya Initiative and Arewa Youth Movement, called on the President to give marching orders to security agencies to arrest the ugly trend in the zone.

The youth, after a peaceful demonstration, addressed journalists and said they had begun consultations with people in the local communities of the region to educate them on the need to collaborate with security operatives to tackle the challenges from bottom-up.

Speaking on the rationale behind the call on President Buhari to beef up security, the Convener and President, SYM, Temitope Ogunlade, explained that the working relationship between the three groups was to ensure that the security challenges in the region did not turn into a tribal or religious affair against any particular group.

He added that government at all levels starting from the Presidency must, however, give a clear direction as to how the issue would be tackled headlong.

On the inclusion of youths in the cabinet, the SYM leader said the conference was a reminder to the President to fulfil his campaign promise to the youth in terms of political inclusion and job/employment opportunities in his second term.


The meeting was attended by delegates from the six South-West states including Oyo, Ogun, Osun, Ondo, Lagos and Ekiti.


Ogunlade said, “Security is a collective responsibility and we all have to encourage the government with our prayers. The government needs to do more by ensuring balance and support for groups in the areas of security because it is obvious that the region is not safe anymore.


“Our groups believe in peace. We are for peace and not violence. We have discovered that some people hide under the pretext of Fulani herdsmen to perpetrate evil and we are ready to nab them provided the government gives the required support.


“We are already meeting traditional rulers and various ethnic groups in the region as part of our efforts at bringing lasting solutions to the issues of insecurity in the South-West region. Consultation is ongoing with people at the grassroots on how to nip it in the bud.


“On ministerial appointments, we can only appeal to President Buhari to give the youth better attention. The youth of the South-West and the other regions as well have not been carried along fully. And this is why we have come to remind Buhari to remember the youth in his cabinet so as to rekindle our hope again.


“We want to use this medium to remind our President of his promise to appoint youths in his cabinet, also to act fast on security issues and to provide job opportunities for the youth.”

The truth is that it is very difficult to cooperate with Ibo people. my friend in school was the president of National Association of Ibo Students (NAIS) so I had first hand information about what was happening in the association. I was shocked to see the kind of dirty politics that was played among the members especially discrimination based on ones state of origin. Abia, Anambra and Enugu students were struggling to each take control of the association.

If you really want to secede from this country then you must learn to corporate with the Yorubas. When something like this happen you should sympathize with them and not come online and start mocking them and showing your 'I told you so' attitude.

The Yorubas have strong international influence especially in England and USA so if the Ibos corporate with them then seceding will be very easy for them.

Why do people continue to make this same mistake?

The only solution to fulani herdsmen menace is not protests. Once you protest, they consider that community as weak.


Match every assault with a greater assault. Match one bullet shot with ten bullets. Match every life killed with ten lives. That way they will remain in your community.

We are patiently waiting for them in our communities. They should bring it on. Onye gba oso Mpa ya
