The Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) on Wednesday berated a former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode for they term his “untenable claim” over the identity of the arrested Fulani warlord, Abdullah Iskilu-Wakili.
Wakili was arrested in a joint team effort of security operatives led by the OPC at Ibarapa land, Oyo State on Sunday.
Reacting to news of his arrest, Fani-Kayode claimed that the suspect in custody was not the real Wakili who has been involved in the killings and kidnapping of several people in Ibarapa, Oke Ogun, Oyo State.
But in a statement, the Coordinator of the OPC in Oyo State, Rotimi Olumo,has warned Nigerians that the former minister should not be taken seriously.
The statement read, “Fani- Kayode is one of the politicians that thrive in telling lies. He 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 once said 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 his information?
“With his untenable claim, I know and I am sure that the former minister is doing the bid of his paymasters, who are majorly from the North. He is the undisputed spokesperson for 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 Onakakanfo 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 wasn’t Wakili.”
Olumo further revealed that Wakili was arrested alongside three other persons during a fierce battle between operatives and the criminals that lasted over five hours
He noted that Wakili’s son, Abu, escaped using their cows as a cover while his father was arrested.
