Sunday Igboho has slammed Governor Seyi Makinde – The popular activist dared the Oyo governor to arrest him – Igboho said he cannot be threatened on the land of his ancestors
Sunday Adeyemo, a popular Yoruba activist popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has dared the government of Oyo state to arrest him following his “leave” order to Fulani herders in Igangan community. Igboho on Friday, January 22, stormed the town in Ibarapa East local government area of Oyo state after the expiration of his seven-day ultimatum to the Fulani herders mandating them to vacate the community.
Prestige News Online recalls that he had a week ago visited the community to issue quit notice to herdsmen residents in the area after accusing them of perpetrating criminal activities.
Sunday Igboho said nobody can arrest him, even Governor Seyi Makinde.
He was reportedly said to have insisted that Seriki, a popular herder, must leave the town, saying so many people fingered him to be behind the insecurity in the area.
Addressing the people of the community in a now-viral video, Igboho described Governor Seyi Makinde’s directive that no one can be evicted from the state as a joke. Igboho, who spoke in Yoruba language, dared the governor and accused him of backing the Fulani herders who are threatening the peace of Yoruba race. “Is it the Fulani’s that make the laws of the land? Have you forgotten when you were ‘bankrolling’ me when you wanted to become Governor and all I did for you all during the elections, and now you dare threaten me? “Well, I don’t believe that you are serious with your threats yet, until you bring all the soldiers and policemen to arrest me in my house, before I know you are serious. You are all fools.
“You are threatening me in my fatherland with Fulanis. You will not prosper.”
Meanwhile, Governor Seyi Makinde has maintained that no one has the right to ask anyone to leave any part of the country. Also in a tweet on Friday, the Oyo state governor also stressed that “enemies are not people of any tribe or ethnic group but anyone engaged in criminal activities.
“I pledged our administration’s support as they carry out their duties of maintaining law and order in our state. I restated that our enemies are not people of any tribe or ethnic group but anyone engaged in criminal activities in the state.”
