The Igunnuko traditional worshippers in Ogun State have vowed that they would resist all attempts by the state government to coerce them into registering under the Alternative Medicine practice law.

This is just as the traditionalists also called on the state government to arrest and prosecute anyone, who goes about parading as the traditional ruler of Igunnuko religious worship in the state.

Speaking with journalists on Thursday in Abeokuta, the spokesman of the traditional religious worshippers, Chief Odunayo Osanyintolu said the warning became exigent in order to guide the state government appropriately from mistaking the Igunnuko traditional worshippers' activities for alternative medicine business that required to be licensed.

Osanyintolu, who is the Sinaba Igunnuko of Ogun State emphasised that theirs is an ancient religious practice that has been in existence from time immemorial and as such, could be counter-productive for the government to be misled by some few "dissident members", who want to misadvise the government in a bid to form a parallel Igunnuko worshipping union.

Osanyintolu also emphasised that Chief Dauda Adejola-led Igunnuko traditional cult worship in Ogun State remained the only authentic association with Chief Akeem Kareem Ogunrinde as the Secretary in the state as against the union allegedly led by Tajudeen Ajilekege, whom it claimed has been going about town claiming to be the Igunnuko cult's king.

He maintained that Igunnuko traditional religious worship neither has anything to do with any kingship title, nor alternative medicine practice and as such, government should not be misled.

They, however, called on the Dapo Abiodun-led administration to arrest anybody going around parading himself as the oba of the Igunnuko traditional religious worship in the state.
