Metro 5,000 OPC Warriors Storm Ogun Community to Combat Rampaging Militants



Thousands of members of the Reformed Oodua People’s Congress yesterday landed in Imushin, Ogun state to combat suspected militants in the area.

They arrived in over 100 buses and cars from Lagos and Ogun state and moved around the area. They also visited the Olumushin of Imushin, Oba Taiwo Bamgbose, who received them outside his palace.

“They were over 5,000 and they filled the whole community. They carried all kinds of charms and a few of them even carried placards, protesting militant’s invasion of the South-West," someone at the palace said.

“They said they were ready to enter into the creeks to face the militants and kill them and all they needed was the permission of the traditional ruler. Some of them said they could transform to snakes and lions, once they get into the creeks.

“The traditional ruler, after thanking them for their concern, asked them to leave because he had not received authority from higher authorities to allow them fight the militants. He urged them to get approval from the government before doing anything in the community. ”
