Sunday Igboho addressing huge crowd

Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho has broken his silence over the order given by the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, for his arrest.

Igboho caused tension in the country when he ordered the Fulani herdsmen in Igangan, Ibarapa North Local Government of Oyo State to leave the area within seven days.

At the expiration of the ultimatum on Friday, he addressed thousands of supporters in Igangan, insisting that the Fulanis must leave the town.

On Saturday, Adamu ordered the arrest of Igboho for giving quit notice to Fulani herdsmen.

Reacting on his twitter handle on Saturday night, Igboho asked whether it was not a crime for herdsmen to kill Dr. Fatai Aborode after invading his farm.

He also asked whether it was not a crime that Aborode later went to Seriki Fulani house to lay complain, but was tied and butchered and nothing happened.

He tweeted: “And it’s not a crime to Kill doctor akorede? whose farm was invaded and destroyed by Fulani cows, later went to Seriki Fulani house to lay complain, but was tied and butchered and nothing happened?”

  • All the Sunday Igbohos in all the states in the South should wake up now to drive away these animals from the North trying to take over our lands.

  • The Fulani herdsmen killers led federal government are biting more than they can chew.

    The level of insecurity in Nigeria owing to injustices, lopsidedness, improprieties, absurdities, insensitivities, callousness, and inequality of the rest of the ethnic nationalities to the Fulanis under Buhari's government is glaring and must be resisted by all and sundry.

    Any attempt by the fulanized Buhari's security forces to effect the arrest of Sunday Igboho will vehemently be resisted.

    I call on Ndigbo to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Yoruba nation. Enough to fulani oppression, intimidations and outright hegemony.

    What a country. What an unequal union. What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.

    • I pray for that day when yoruba and ibos will stand together. That would mean the end to this evil government.

  • Ordered the arrest of a citizen. On what charges. I know a pope can be arrested in Nigeria for TOO much holiness. This is Nigeria of apc Buhari. For the level of impunity to kill and kidnapping and no answer, yet the IG still holding on to his job. NOW the IG asking for the arrest of a citizen for demanding justice and peace in his community.
