Owo massacre wake-up call to secure communities traditionally –ARSADIC



THE traditionalists have described the last Sunday’s gruesome murder of several Christian worshippers at the St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State, by unknown gunmen as a wake-up to all Nigerians to be firm in securing their communities.

They insisted that “non-conventional and traditional methods” remain the only way to fight and drive away those attacking and killing innocent Nigerians in their communities.

The traditionalists on the platform of the Ancient Religion Societies of African Descendants International Council (ARSADIC) said there was no doubt that the government had failed and could no longer secure the lives and property of Nigerians.

In a statement by the President of the group, Chief Ifagbenusola Atanda, who is the Asiwaju Awo Agbaye, the traditional worshippers said the time has come for everyone to adopt traditional means like in the time past to step up security in “our various communities and keep intruders and aggressors at bay.”

The statement read: “For whatever evil that befalls us, we are all to be blamed because God has continued to give us signs of calamities ahead but we have not done enough to prepare or show the capacity to push intruders and aggressors away from our communities.”

“For many unbroken years, the bad elements within the country, who we believe is being driven by expansionist agenda, keep up their senseless killings and kidnappings of our people on the road, in the sanctuary of religious places, the comfort of our homes and work fields to intimidate us but we are yet to stand up and square up to them.
