As the newly launched security outfit tagged Operation Amotekun begins operations in the Southwest, Soludero Hunters’ Association has disclosed that the outfit doesn’t rely on guns to operate.
President of the hunters, Oba Nureni Ajijola Anabi, while saying hunters would use their ancestors’ powers to ward off any aggression against Yoruba indigenes in the zone, vowed to match anyone or group of persons terrorising the area strength with strength.
Stating that hunters can never fold their arms and watch some persons to commit atrocities in the zone, he noted that since the outfit was launched, they had resuscitated all powers used by their ancestors to conquer their aggressors.
“Recently, thunders struck in some places and we all saw the effects. We can employ the services of these deities and they will answer us speedily.
“We promise to be civil and law-abiding in our operations. We will never disappoint our governors who initiated the security outfit.
“Anyone who has the mind to kidnap, kill or rape our women should have a rethink. If not, we hunters in the South West will prove to them the stuff we are made of“, he added.
On fears expressed by Miyetti Allah that Amotekun was created against them, Ajijola who is also the Defence Minister of the RTEAN, Oyo State branch, asked herders not to entertain any fear.
“So far they don’t come to our lands and be terrorising our people. We will not tolerate that any longer. We are not against any group provided they don’t pose threats to our lives and property”, he added
While promising all Yorubas that they are well secured anywhere in the zone, Ajijola disclosed that hunters association has more than 500,000 hunters in each of the six states.
He said, “We promise all Yorubas that they are secure anywhere in the zone because we have more than 500,000 hunters in each of the six states. We will not betray you.
“As for the use of weapons, that may not be necessary. The powers of our ancestors are enough weapons. We don’t need any approved weapon to operate. It was the powers that our forefathers used to win many battles in the past that we will use. They are still very much with us. We only need to revive them.”
