Coordinator of the Odua Peoples Congress (OPC), Otunba Gani Adams has cried out over an alleged plot by a devious mastermind to assassinate.
To buttress his fear, Adams revealed that he is under a daily surveillance and his life is no longer safe.
He raised the alarm in a statement signed by Bar. Yinka Oguntimeyin, Director of Media and Publicity, OPC, adding that an unnamed Lagos politician is behind the evil plot.
“This is to alert concerned Nigerians that after several failed attempts to remove the leader of the Odua Peoples Congress by expelled members of the Congress,security report at our disposal revealed that a top Lagos based politician has devised ways to create chaos and attack the convoy of Otunba Gani Adams soon after the handover of Government to Gen. Buhari.
“The group have met severally,with heavy funding by a Lagos based politician,t heir plan which we are privy to is to make use of the media to publish negative stories on the person of Otunba Gani Adams,using a political party propaganda machinery which failed despite several sponsored negative stories on his person. They now want to create chaos by attacking the convoy of the National leader of the congress.”
Adams further alleged that a meeting held to concertize his elimination on Thursday, (thursday) at the residence of an expelled member of the Congress at Oloworo Road in Oworonsoki, Lagos. He added that the meeting was attended by 35 grassroot members of a zone, where a decision was reached that a 3-man committee should monitor his movement from his Festac town residence to his office.
He continued, “We are also aware that the Lagos based politician already distributed modern arms including AK-47 guns which was collected two days ago and delivered by Shina Akinpelu.”
“By this statement, we are bringing to the attention of the world the sinister plot to eliminate Otunba Gani Adams and should the attempt fail or we repeal the attack,they will feed the media with false information further claiming that OPC is made up of thugs and touts.
It is sad that despite the efforts of Otunba Adams to promote the culture and tradition of his race,and upgrade the status of the Odua Peoples Congress to a socially responsible one, and the formation of Odua Progressive Union (OPU)which is presently active in 57 countries, a platform for Yorubas in diaspora to interact and channel their energy towards the propagation of the culture and tradition of the Yoruba race and in turn build a clear cut tourism platform and image perception FOR Nigeria, a move he just established in Instabul last week friday,and Dubai yesterday,some bad elements are desperate to draw us back to the jungle days because of the desperate interest.
We are also aware that another meeting will hold this afternoon at the Oworonshoki residence of Sadam. We therefore call on Nigerians and security agents to be aware of this plot while we keep vigil of their next moves.”
