Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, has threatened to attack Yoruba politicians who stand against his ongoing struggle which according to him is to protect Yorubaland from Fulani herdsmen
Igboho said this while speaking during a virtual town hall meeting which started at 11:15 p.m. on Tuesday and ended at 1 a.m. on Wednesday. It had more than 1000 participants from Nigeria and the Diaspora.
Igboho joined in at 12:16 a.m., saying he was just entering Oyo town to see Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin of Oyo, for a meeting. He said the monarch is in supporter of his struggle.
Recall that Igboho had issued a seven-day ultimatum to herders in Ibarapa area of Oyo state, blaming them for kidnapping, killings, destruction of farmland and insecurity in the state.
After confronting the herders in Ibarapa with some youths in the area at the expiration of the ultimatum, he moved to Ogun state on Monday and was received by thousands of youths.
Issuing the threat, Igboho said, “Our (Yoruba) leaders are lazy and slaves to Fulanis. They visit Abuja to collect money, we will attack them and destroy their property.
Tinubu and other Yoruba politicians are Fulani slaves. We need not be afraid. I have not collected any money from anyone. I am a full Yoruba man and I will not allow Fulani people to enslave me, we do not look or behave alike in any way. The herders should go. Makinde is also a slave to the herders because of second term ambition,” Igboho said.
