Afenifere has on Thursday, called on the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to sort himself out with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, concerning his ongoing probe,
It argued that the Jagaban of Lagos failed to defend the Yorubas in time of need.
Afenifere spoke through its National Publicity Secretary, Yinka Odumakin, in a chat with Journalists.
Odumakin reiterated that the probe has nothing to do with the group, as it is bent on protecting the Yoruba race against banditry.
Afenifere said: “Let them sort out themselves. It has nothing to do with us in Afenifere. Let them fight their corruption the way they want, and sort themselves out.
“We are fighting the killings and attacks on Yoruba people at this moment. That is what we have time for now. Our focus now is to end the serial attacks, banditry, and raping of our women, and other things that are going on. That is our concern at the moment, not any party or Political Leader.”
When asked about a claim by the Group’s Factional Leader, Ayo Adebanjo, who said that an attack on Tinubu generally affects the yoruba race, Odumakin maintained that Afenifere has not disowned the Elder Statesman.
He added: “We do not disown our Leader, Papa Ayo Adebanjo, for the statement he made at that time.
“The circumstances were different from what obtains now.
“Our people are under serious siege, and anybody that cannot stand up for them in what they are going through, cannot have Yoruba support at this time.”
