Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho on has alleged that some Yoruba leaders were supporting criminal herders to perpetrate their nefarious activities in the Southwest.
The Yoruba activist has said these leaders are in support of the burning of one of his houses in his Ibadan, Oyo State, in the early hours of Tuesday.
Responding to reporters at his burnt down residence at Soka area, Igboho called out those that have an issue with him to confront him, instead of resorting to violence by burning his property he said is worth N50 million. He also denied being financially backed by any politician and challenged any with a genuine claim to come forward. He said until those who are killing people in the region move out, he will not be moved.
He added that he is also surprised that the Special Adviser on Political Matters to President Muhammadu Buhari, Senator Babafemi Ojudu would deny their meeting, he said:
“What is surprising to me is that I never expected that we Yoruba people should be in support of the evils being perpetrated by the herdsmen. I am surprised that the Fulani are killing our people in our own territory. They rape and kidnap our people.
“It is a terrible thing. So, I am trying to repel them. But, it is shocking to me that, despite the efforts that I am making some Yoruba people are supporting Fulani herdsmen to set my house on fire. It is so distressing and it saddens me.
“For now, I am not suspecting anybody. But, Yoruba people would say there is no action without a cause; it is a pointer to the fact that enemies within are at work. Inasmuch as I am their target they should have come to my house to confront me.
“I would have been able to pin some of them down to get to root of this. they wouldn’t have gone scotfree. Now, they resulted to destroying my property.”
The police have begun investigation into the destruction of the activist’s, according to the Oyo State Police Command spokesman Gbenga Fadeyi.
