A retired high court judge in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Justice Mwada Balami, has described the Yorubas as peaceful people in Gwagwalada and FCT at large.
He also said the Yoruba people were known to be good ambassadors of their communities, adding that Yorubas are peace-loving people in anywhere they live.
Balami said this while speaking on the occasion of Yoruba Day celebration on Saturday in Gwagwalada, further pointed out that Yorubas are nice people.
He expressed with joy the way at which the Yoruba leaders had been counseling their younger ones on the norms and culture of Yorubas at their respective communities where they live.
While speaking on the crime situation in Gwagwalada, the retired judge noted that Yorubas were not criminal minded people.
Balami, however, advised the entire Yoruba people across the six area councils to continue to maintain peaceful co-existence with other tribes.
In an interview with newsmen at the occasion, the Oba of Yorubas in Gwagwalada, Oba Muraina Boladale, called on Yorubas to live in peace with one another irrespective of their religious differences.
Oba Boladale charged the administration of Gwagwalada Area Council to carry Yorubas along in the affairs of things in the area.
On his part the Oba of Yorubas in old Kutunku, Gwagwalada, Oluwole Samson, pleaded with the Yorubas to continue to be law-abiding citizens of Yoruba Community.
He expressed delight the manner at which Yoruba Day was celebrated peacefully with the attendance of distinguished personalities from the federal ministries and National Assembly.
Samson, therefore, revealed that the Oba of Yorubas in Gwagwalada would be turbaned by the Aguma of Gwagwalada, Alhaji Muhammadu Magaji as soon as the arrangements had been completed by the Yoruba community in the area.
