The National Coordinator of the Yoruba social-cultural group, Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Otunba (DR) Gani Adams, has stated that the group which remains non-political and non-partisan has been providing security for prominent Nigerians, including top politicians. He however denied that his group have been the one providing security for the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, since his security details were withdrawn, but added that they can, if Tambuwal gives them the opportunity. It would be recalled that following Tambuwal’s defection to the APC from PDP on Oct. 28, his security details were withdrawn by the police. Gani however said although the group is from the South-West, it is detrabilised and meant to secure every NIgerian. “We are a detribalised group. Inasmuch as you ask for our security arrangement, if you have a very good job and not a person with questionable character, we have the right to secure you. “If the presidency calls for our services, we can secure them. We are not a partisan organisation. We will not dabble into politics. But if it is on a personal level, there is nothing bad in that, as long as he (Tambuwal) has the capacity to pay our boys. “There is no person in this country that the OPC cannot secure. We have specially trained security guards in our organisation; there are about 4000 of them. They have security experience, physical strength and psychological advantage. “We have the capacity to secure even governors. We usually don’t lobby for such services because we feel the government has the necessary agencies to secure them (officials). “What most people don’t know is that OPC is the one securing them and their properties. Most of the politicians, especially in the South-West and Abuja, our group secure them. Some of them have our members as aides and personal security,” Adams said. He also stated that contrary to popular beliefs that the group moves about with cutlasses and knives, they don’t, but work based on intelligence. “We have our internal training and orientation on security and they don’t need to carry guns before they secure you. They don’t need cutlasses or knives for security. You won’t see charms or anything intimidating or anything that can affect your religious belief on them.”
