Sunday Igboho arrives Igangan, insists herdsmen must leave

Sunday Igboho Adeyemo

Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, on Friday arrived Igangan in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State following the expiration of a notice to quit the area given to Fulani herdsmen.

Frustrated by the incessant killings, kidnappings, and destruction of farms allegedly being carried out by herdsmen in Ibarapaland, Igboho last Friday stormed Fulani settlements in Igangan and asked them to leave within seven days.

Igboho accused the Fulani community in the area of masterminding abductions, killings, and other criminal activities in the area.

The move was condemned in a broadcast by the governor Seyi Makinde.

The police said four persons were injured when Igboho visited the place and the Fulani also allegedly waylaid farmers returning from their farms the same Friday night and hacked four of them.

On his arrival on Friday, Igboho was received by hundreds of youths at the Igangan Town Hall.

Igboho insisted that Seriki must leave the town, according to a resident Tajudeen Oke.

Security has been heightened in the area after the new Oyo Commissioner of Police Ngozi Onadeko warned on Thursday against violent acts.
