Fulani eviction: Sunday Igboho breaks silence on presidency’s arrest order
Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho has vowed that Fulani herdsmen must be chased out of Yoruba land. He was reacting to the order given by the Inspector
He was reacting to theorder given by the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, for his arrest.Igboho had last week giving the Fulani residing and doing business in Igangan, Ibarapa North Local Government of Oyo State a 7-day ultimatum to leave the area.
And a week later, he made good his threat when he and his supporters stormed the area insisting that the Fulani must leave the town.A Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu told the BBC yesterday that the Inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed had ordered the arrest of Igboho for giving quit notice to Fulani herdsmen.
But in series of tweets on Saturday night, Igboho recalled some instances where the herdsmen had killed and mained and destroyed property without the government ordering their arrests.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? headtopics.com
“This one we have started here in Oyo State will not end here. We are going to other parts of the South-West. Tell herdsmen in Ekiti State, Ondo State and Osun states; in fact, in all South-West states that we are coming.“This is not about politics, money or fame but the freedom of Yoruba nation from the killer Fulani herdsmen.
“FG did not order the Inspector general of Police to find and arrest the killer of Dr Aborode, Oko Oloyu and other prominent Yoruba elites kidnapped at Ibarapa Oyo state but they are planning to arrest me. Let’s see how it goes.“We are taking back our land from all these Fulani herdsmen terrorising us. May God help us.”Read more: Daily Post Nigeria »
This is tribalism of the highest order. How many Boko Haram has he arrested or ordered for their arrest? When will this nonsense end in Nigeria? We are slaves in our country and land. God fight the battle for us. Do we really have a physical president or electric president? toh his silent cuz he's wise
MBuhari is their grand patron. Where's Tinubu? That is yahoo Boyz tweeter account not Chief Sunday Igboho. Cross-check and stop junk journalism. Owo Baba Dammy is not on Twitter. He did not give quit notice to Fulanis doing business in their land. He gave quit notices to terrorist group the Fulani herdsmen who has been killing and rapping women all over the country.
How many Yoruba or igbo traders can do what the herds are doing now in west and eastern nigeria in the North ,wouldn't there be a genocide. The federal government under Buhari has failed to uphold the constitution and the raw of law...stop double standards. The Nigeria Government must leave him alone, first the IGP must address the issues of killer herdmen,people are enrage by the failure of Government to protect communities, so do not arrest the man, arrest the issues he has raised,arrest the complains he has made, stop double stds
istandwithsundayigboho istandwithsundayigboho istandwithsundayigboho I think the retaliations of those killings will make the government act. Igboho oosa we dey for u May God bless and protect this man and everyone else The FG is clearly not on the side of justice. This generally may birth the unthinkable. The Yoruba 'nation' should not surrender to threat and injustice.
SundayIgboho1 may Allah give you the strength to conquer. We are taken back our lands from herders, may God help us. Amen I like this man Courage let the music start aneoff of this monster
