“We are not about politics, and we do not seek to interfere in the political processes, but we are part and parcel of the native defenders of Yoruba (Nation’s) territorial integrity, which must not be impugned upon or threatened in any way. As elders who know history, we are aware that anyone who seeks another person’s land for grabs and domination, is not only a thief and an aggressor, such a thief and greedy fellow comes with threat, violence and war. Yoruba nation will not allow any discontent tribe in Nigeria or Africa to try such on our soil, never” Prince Adesanya added.
