Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief Olu Falae yesterday said his abduction by gunmen is a blessing if the Yoruba are liberated from Fulani herdsmen’s attacks. The Afenifere Chieftain stated this when he received a delegation of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), led by Otunba Gani Adams, at his Akure residence.
Falae added that contrary to claims by the Department of State Services (DSS) that the kidnappers were mere criminals looking for money, they were determined to kill him. The former Minister of Finance added that the abductors shot at his car, thinking he was inside. He stated further that they later walked into his office with their sharp knives and cutlasses and started attacking him before whisking him into the bush.
