The recent abduction of an Afenifere Chieftain and former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Olu Falae, by suspected Fulani herdsmen assumed a worse dimension on Thursday as prominent Yoruba leaders threatened secession from the entity called Nigeria.

The grouse of the leaders ranges from the abduction of Falae and the wanton destruction of his farmland to the need for a serious restructuring of Nigeria to reflect true federalism.
