The Aareonakakanfo of Yoruba land, Iba Gani Adams, has denied that members of the Oodua People’s Congress were involved in the crisis that erupted in Ojota, Lagos, on Monday.

Recall that two persons were feared dead in the  crisis that also involved the Yoruba Nation agitators an the Police.

Adams, while reacting to the incident in a tatement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, said no OPC member was part of the crisis.

The Aare, who is the leader of the OPC said,  “Let me clear the air on the crisis that had engulfed Ojota this morning.There were unconfirmed reports linking members of the OPC to the mayhem.I want to state it clearly that our members were not at the scene of the incident.

“OPC is not against the liberation of Yoruba race; however, it is a fact that the struggle for the liberation of Yoruba race is an inalienable right of all Yoruba to champion self determination. We are not part of the peaceful rally held in Ojota.

“Our position on regionalism is very clear. It is sacrosanct because that is what we are seeking at the moment.

“Nigeria should be restructured to full regional autonomy, where each region will be at liberty to operate at its own pace.”

Adams urged members of the public to ignore the reports linking the OPC to the incident.

“Information at my disposal from the visual contents of happenings in Ojota indicated a peaceful rally that later gone awry, leaving in its wake a bitter experience that led to the death of one of the Yoruba nation agitators.

“It is unfortunate that such crisis could lead to such fracas that eventually claimed one life,” he said.
