Bandits And Kidnappers Have Monopoly On Violence Than The Government – Alaafin

Following cases of Insecurity, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has expressed grief over the hike in insecurity cases across the country, adding that bandits and kidnappers now have a monopoly on violence.

According to reports, Oba Adeyemi, revealed this in Lagos during the 51st birthday celebration of the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams.

According to a statement on Saturday by the media aide to Adams, Mr Kehinde Aderemi, Oba Adeyemi stated that, “The monopoly on violence must be concentrated in government but, regrettably, we are not having that now. Bandits and kidnappers now have a monopoly on violence compared to the government, which is the reason we are in this current situation.”

He added that, “Aare Gani Adams’ appointment is divine and based on merit. It took me over five years to consult widely and seek the support of the gods in the spiritual realms before he was appointed. He didn’t contest or struggle for it. He was divinely appointed and my prayer is that he will lead the Yoruba race for a longer time.”
