The Traditional Religion Worshipers Association, (TRAWSO), Osun State chapter, has issued a note of warning that the Joint Task Force (JTF) alone is incapable of fighting and winning the terror campaigns of the Boko Haram in the North.
TRAWSO assured that it would only carry out some sacrifices, which would automatically compel the recalcitrant insurgents to lay down their arms, if the Federal Government was ready to opt for their intervention.
Leader of the traditionalists, Chief Awopetu Idowu, stated this at a press conference organized as part of activities marking this year’s Isese Day, Tuesday, August 20.
Chief Awopetu contended that rather than attribute the want on destruction of lives and properties that the country has witnessed since the insurgency commenced in 2009 on religion as the members and leaders of the radical sect had claimed, the massacre of innocent Nigerian has political undertone and, therefore, charged the Federal Government to formally approach traditional worshipers to solve the problem.
Pitching his tent with him was the president, the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the association, Chief Ifayemi Elebuibon, who also said the insecurity facing the country could be resolved without the use of fire arms as there was appeasement that could be made to make members of the sect lay down their arms.
