The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has declared that a new security unit will be unveiled very soon.
A new outfit that will complement the effort of the Western Nigeria Security Network, Operation Amotekun, and other security agencies in tackling the insecurity ravaging the region.
He said the new security outfit would involve all security groups, traditional rulers, and other stakeholders in the region.
He made this revelation during a press conference in Lagos.
He said stakeholders involved would ponder on the matter in Ibadan Oyo State on March 17.
Adams and some members of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere present at the press briefing also called on the six governors of the region to inject at least 15 percent of their annual budget into agriculture.
Iba Adams, Afenifere spokesman, Yinka Odumakin, and a chieftain of the group, Sola Lawal said investing a huge amount of money on agriculture will play a huge impact in providing sustainable food production for the region.
They denounced the recent protest by food sellers in the northern part of the country, which prevented food from the area from coming to the Southwest.
The trio said investment in agriculture would provide employment, enhance internally generated revenue, provide food security, reduce urban congestion and expand the coast for participatory modernized agriculture.
Adams explained that the Southwest spent a huge amount on food daily, adding that the protest was a clarion call to the Southwest leaders to provide the necessary security for farmers to produce enough agricultural produce.
