The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has said he does not trust the police and called on President Muhammadu Buhari to restructure the country so as to end insecurity.

Fayose said this at an interactive conference convened by a Pan Yoruba Socio-cultural group, Yoruba Ko’ya, in Ado Ekiti.

Punch reports that the conference examined the effects of Fulani herdsmen-farmers crisis on food security in Ekiti State and the recent upsurge in kidnappings and armed robbery in the state.

Gov. Fayose called on all the Yoruba irrespective of their political interest and religion to unite to resist the invasion of the Yoruba land by external forces.

“Let me say very expressly that resistance is not easy but only the courageous win. I was at Ibadan restructuring crusade organised by Afenifere in September 2017, all that I said there, I have no apology for them.

“Yoruba people should be allowed to be in right places. I want to appeal to our people that this is a collective struggle. If you say you cannot defend yourself, someone wants to cut you,…you want to wait and allow people to shoot you? Even God does not appreciate cowards.”
