The Patriarch of Aladura Churches worldwide, Prophet Olapade Agoro on Thursday called on those involved in the sharing of the $2.1bn arms deal to refund the fund illegally acquired before the masses descend on them.
Speaking with newsmen in Ibadan on the state of the nation, Agoro, who described the anti-corruption war being fought by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration as laudable said the highly placed personalities named should be ashamed of themselves.
The Aladura Patriarch, who was very hard on the Yorubas among the suspects said: “Yorubas are called Omoluabis, in the days of our forefathers, stealing was an abhorrence, talkless of being involved in large scale fraud.
“This is the view, the Yoruba elders indicted in the Dasuki arms scandal should view their fathers’ names and do the right thing expected of them. The fact that a lot of the names mentioned are not only elder statesmen but are symbols of honour to the youths of Yoruba land is a source of worry and concern to some of us.
“Money will go, but, Yoruba will never forget evils done by them. In the days of our forefathers, once the elderly were caught in the mess, they did the right thing-committing suicide giving them peaceful death.
“The fact that some of them are high chiefs in Yorubaland demands of them obeyance of the Omoluabi tenet”, the cleric added.
