Sunday Igboho arrives Ogun to evict herdsmen

A self-styled Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has arrived Ogun State to help carry out eviction of herdsmen in the state.

Mr Igboho was in the news recently for giving an ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen in Ibarapa area of Oyo State to vacate the area and upon the expiration of the ultimatum, the house of the Seriki Fulani in the area was attacked.

Consequently, the Seriki Fulani, who said his house was destroyed and several cars parked within his compound burnt, has fled the area for Kwara State with his family.

Mr Igboho, who arrived the state some hours ago, addressed journalists on his mission.

PREMIUM TIMES obtained a video of his interview in the state.

“We are here to solidarity with our brothers and sisters. We are being killed by fulani herders in various (Southwest) states and that’s why we, the youths came out to demand our rights,” he said.

“That is why I am saying all fulani herdsmen should vacate Yoruba land. There is peace now in Igangan and that’s not the only place I want peace to reign. We are going to all Yoruba land. I appreciate Ogun Ogun governor, he loves his people and that’s why we are in Ogun State today.

“We are going to Yewa now where fulani kidnappers are terrorising Yorubas in Ogun State”, he said in the short clip.

He also appreciated Yoruba indigenes for supporting him.

“I have not seen any Yoruba person sabotaging my efforts because it is fight for all including Christian and Muslim. We are all fighting. Thanks to the kings, and Nigerians in diaspora”.

Mr Igbho’s visit to the state is coming days after he declared that Ogun State would be his next state of action.

More over, Remmy Hazzan, Special Adviser on Public Communications to Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, told Punch last Saturday that “Anybody who is hoping to help us with the security situation is welcome. Not only Sunday Igboho, whoever has what it takes to help us get security right is welcome in Ogun State.”
