Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo popularly know as Sunday Igboho on Monday visited Oja-Odan in Yewa area of Ogun State to chase out Fulani herdsmen living in the forest.
“We are here today because the Fulani herdsmen are rubbishing our people. Kidnapping our people, slaughtering and raping our aunties,” Igboho said while addressing the people.
“I’m in Ogun state right now to come and rescue my people from Fulani kidnapping, Fulani herdsmen, enough is enough for all the Fulani herdsmen in our land. This is our land, this is our nation, Yoruba nation. We don’t want any Fulani herdsmen, we are moving to the forest now to chase all the Fulani herdsmen. To chase all over them away, we don’t them in our land again.”
Igboho also hinted that he has the backing of the Ogun State Government and the traditional rulers to evict the Fulanis from the state “the Ogun state government has registered its displeasure saying he was voted into power by the people of Ogun state, therefore, the leaders of Ogun state say they do not consent to Fulani herdsmen abducting our people. And troubling us,” he said.
Recall Igboho led the people of Ibarapa in Oyo State to evict Fulani herdsmen within living in their forests following several allegations of being responsible for the kidnappings and other nefarious activities happening in the community.
Recall that Remmy Hazzan, Special Adviser on Public Communications to Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun had said Sunday Igboho is welcome in the state for “consultation” only and not for any form of violence or confrontation.
“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,” Hazzan said on Saturday.
Viral videos captured Igboho addressing the people of Oja Odan who welcomed him with open arms.
