Wakili: OPC blasts Femi Fani-Kayode

0 157

The Oyo state chapter of Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) has described Chief Femi Fani-Kayode as a spoiler and agent of misinformation.
This is coming against the backdrop of the former Minister of Aviation’s claim that the dreaded kidnap kingpin, Abdullahi Iskilu Wakili, apprehended by OPC operatives last Sunday (March 7) in Igangan area of Ibarapa zone of Oyo state was not the real Wakili but a fake, asserting that the real Wakili was still at large. Fani-Kayode had made this claim in a tweet on Tuesday.

But in a statement today, the Oyo state coordinator of OPC, Comrade Rotimi Olumo said the claim by Fani-Kayode was untrue and a misinformation taken too far.
Olumo insisted that Fani-Kayode was a spoiler, an agent of destruction and political featherweight, reputed for changing narratives and misinforming the public.
Olumo further noted: “Fani Kayode has a reputation for using his social media page to foment trouble and cause disunity in Yorubaland. He had once said that Yoruba language was Anago. How can you take such a person too serious?


“I remember former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said it once that Fani Kayode can do anything for money and survival.
“He lives in Abuja, romancing with the north, yet he was the first to refute the claim that the kidnapper was not Wakili. Where did he get the information?” Olumo queried.
Olumo was not done as he also stated, “With this untenable claim, I know and I am sure that the former minister is doing the bidding of his paymasters, who are majorly from the north. He is the undisputed spokesperson of any politician that is ready to feather his nest.
“He should be warned to stop drumming the beat of disunity in Yorubaland. Fani-Kayode was one of the few people that called and congratulated our leader, the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Abiodun Ige Adams on Monday, on the success of the operation of the OPC, and the following day, he twisted the story refuting the claim that the man apprehended was Wakili.


“Fani-Kayode is very close to prominent politicians in the north, yet none of them trusted him because they know that he is purely a political agent that cannot be trusted. He did everything to change every story. How can you take such a man so serious?
Recalling how Wakili and three of his boys were nabbed, the OPC boss disclosed that the operation lasted for over five hours.
He informed there was a fierce battle between his men and the criminals before the latter were overpowered adding however that Wakili’s son, Abu, escaped during the duel, using cows as cover.
He continued, “Even the Ayete monarch, His Royal Majesty, Oba Emmanuel Okeniyi, and a prominent group in Igangan also corroborated our claim that Wakili is their major problem in Igangan.”
The OPC chieftain now urged prominent Yoruba leaders and groups not to trust the former minister with vital information saying he could become treacherous at any moment, adding, “I am using this opportunity to advise my brother, Sunday Igboho to be wary of Fani-Kayode’s antic and deceit because he is so smart in causing disunity in Yorubaland.”
Praising the OPC men that effected the arrest of the dreaded warlord, Olumo submitted, “Wakili’s story is a testimony of what OPC can achieve as a group with formidable structures across the country.
“So, in our desire to rid the southwest of criminal herders and kidnappers, we are determined to complement the efforts of the police and other security outfits.”
He however appealed to the southwest governors, traditional rulers and all the leaders and stakeholders to support the OPC and the Southwest Security Stakeholders Group (SSSG) and other security outfits in ensuring that the southwest is safe for residents.
