Renowned Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho has thrown an open challenge at Oyo Governor Seyi Makinde to arrest him if he can over the eviction order he issued to Fulani herdsmen.
Governor Makinde had countered Igboho’s seven-day ultimatum issued to Fulanis residing in Igangan community of Ibarapa East local government over alleged abduction and banditry in a state-wide broadcast. The Oyo state Governor stated that nobody has the right to evict anybody from any parts of the State.
Igboho who defied the order on Friday January 22 when he raided Igangan, accused the Governor of supporting the herdsmen. He also recalled how Makinde relied on him to win votes back in 2019.
“You can bring all Fulanis to Yorubaland, if you like, you unfortunate ones. It will not be well with you.
“You are threatening me in my fatherland with Fulanis. You will not prosper.
“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.”
