Leader of the Odua Peoples Congress (OPC), Otunba Gani Adams has said that his life has been threatened by a top Lagos based politician who planned to attack him (Adams) including his close associates after the May 29 handover date.

According to a press release signed by his Director of Media and Publicity, Barrister Yinka Oguntimeyin, the said politician, after the failed attempt to remove Adams as the leader of OPC by expelled members of the Congress, has mobilised a group to create a chaos that would implicate the group leader.

He said the group, which has been allegedly funded heavily planned to use the media to publish negative stories against Adams.

He also claimed that the politician has distributed modern arms including AK-47 guns to actualise the game plan.

“It is sad that despite the efforts of Otunba Adams to promote the culture and tradition of his race, and upgrade the status of the Odua Peoples Congress to a socially responsible one, and the formation of Odua Progressive Union (OPU) which is presently active in 57 countries, a platform for Yorubas in diaspora to interact and channel their energy towards the propagation of the culture and tradition of the Yoruba race and in turn build a clear cut tourism platform and image perception for Nigeria,” he said.
