A group known as Yoruba World Congress Worldwide (YWC) has urged security agencies to fish out the sponsors of Saturday’s attack on the Oyo state government secretariat.

The group made this declaration via a statement made available to newsmen  through its Secretary General, Engineer Stephen Ajayi on Wednesday.

Recall that some people who claimed to be Yoruba nation agitators had on Saturday stormed the Oyo state Secretariat in a bid to take over the House of Assembly.

YWC in its reaction, enjoined the security operatives to fish out those who sponsored the attack.

The group noted that the need to arrest the sponsors was necessary in order to serve as a deterrent to others.

“This is to formally inform the general public that the Yorùbá World Congress Worldwide (YWC) dissociates herself from any form of violence or any treasonable acts that could jeopardise the peace and order in Yoruba land, and in Nigeria as a whole.

“Following the invasion of the Oyo State secretariat on the 13th April 2024 by some individuals of Yoruba Nation Agitators, to cause mayhem in Yoruba land and to cause confusion in Nigeria, we see their actions as barbaric and ill advised.

“The Yoruba World Congress Worldwide (YWC), UK, by this open letter, rejects and completely dissociates ourselves from the actions of these individuals.

“To serve as a deterrent to others, we advise that the law enforcement agencies should fish out the sponsors of the criminal elements from their hideouts and bring them to book without delay,” it said.

Meanwhile, one of the suspected Yoruba nation agitators on Saturday, Ismaila Malomo, has named one Modupe Abiola Onitiri as one of their sponsors.

Mr Malomo disclosed this speaking with journalists on Monday while being paraded alongside 20 others by the Oyo State Police Command at its Eleyele Headquarters in Ibadan.

He stated that he volunteered to drive the agitators down to the secretariat in Ibadan from Idi-Iroko in Ogun State.

The suspect also revealed that other sponsors of the group reside in diaspora and that they have been meeting with them virtually.

However, the state government has demolished a storey-building belonging to Mrs Onitiri Abiola located in the Oluyole area of Ibadan following the discovery by security agents that it was also being used as an armoury by the agitators.

The paraded agitators included Adeyemo Joseph Oluwaseun, aged 29; Adeyemo Peter, aged 75; Amos Oluwatuyi Ogundeji, 45; Ayanwale Rofiayat (female), aged 25; Olaleye Mathew, 54; Fatoki Anthony, 34; Muritala Abere, 40; Adepoju Ismaila,45; Fatunmbi Wasiu, aged 30; Isaac Friday, 27; Ayanwale Saburi, 28; Elegbede Adebola, 27; Adedamola Deniyi, 29; Ojo Olufemi, 52; Ajani Ezekiel, aged 42; Adejumo Lateef, 60; Ayoola David, 40; Adesokan Hammed, 38; and Salawudeen Wahab, aged 56.
