Herdsmen crisis: Defend yourselves – Sunday Igboho charges Yoruba people

Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, has urged Yoruba people to defend themselves when attacked by Fulani herdsmen

Igboho, who spoke yesterday when he received former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode at his Soka home in Ibadan, said all he wants is peace in Yorubaland.

Both men held a three-hour closed-door meeting after which Igboho said, “I don’t have anything to say, for now, my uncle (Fani-Kayode) has said everything for me.

“What we want in Yorubaland is peace. We don’t want banditry, we don’t want Fulani herdsmen to continue to kill our people, we want our people to be free.

“My message to my people in Yorubaland is that they must try to defend themselves.

“Don’t let anyone come to your farm or your home to kill you, you must try to defend yourself, which was what the minister said too.”

Sunday Igboho had vowed that all killer-herdsmen in Yorubaland must be evicted from the South West region

The activist became popular when he rose up with a seven-day ultimatum to the Fulani community in Igangan, a town in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to vacate the area.

He attempted to carry out his threat to evict the Fulani in the area when he gathered hundreds of his supporters, stormed the community and confronted the Seriki Fulani.

Sunday Igboho also stormed another troubled area in Yewaland, Ogun State, in continuation of his anti-killer herdsmen battle in Yorubaland.
