He said the arrest was unfortunate, recalling that major breakthroughs recorded by the police in Oyo State were through the cooperation of the local security outfits, including OPC and vigilante.

The OPC leader said the group had contacted its lawyers to determine the way forward.

Adams said the group will not be deterred by the onslaught of the police in its patriotic determination to rid Southwest of kidnappers, arsonists and other criminal elements.

The OPC leader said stakeholders will not allow insecurity in Yorubaland to degenerate to the level of monumental tragedy ravaging the Northeast and Northwest.

He told reporters in Lagos that the arrest of the OPC members after they had apprehended Wakilu was in bad faith, adding that he suspected that they were arrested, based on order from above.

Adams said: “It is unfortunate that the Nigerian police acted like that. What they did made us to regret our support for them when hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protests.
