- There is palpable tension in Igangan, Oyo state as popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho stormed the town
- Igboho had a week ago visited the town to issue quit notice to herdsmen resident in the area after accusing them of perpetrating criminal activities
- The seven-day notice issued to the herdsmen expires today, Friday, January 22
Popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, and his supporters have arrived in Igangan, a town in Ibarapa North local government area, Oyo state.
The Punch reports that Igboho was received by hundreds of youths at the Igangan Town Hall.
The activist reportedly visited the town as the quit notice he issued to the herdsmen in the area expires on Friday, January 22.
Igboho had on Friday, January 15, visited the Fulani settlement in Igangan and gave them a seven-day ultimatum to leave the area.
The Yoruba activist is still addressing the youths and other supporters in the time at the time of filing this report.
Igboho reportedly insisted that Seriki, a popular herder, must leave the town, saying so many people fingered him to be behind the insecurity in the area.
He accused the Fulani community in the area of masterminding abductions, killings, and other criminal activities in the area.
In its version of the report, Daily Trust states that though Igboho did not fight the Fulani residents in Oyo state as speculated on social media, he insisted they must leave the state and the entire Yorubaland, if kidnapping continues.
However, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state has reacted to the ultimatum given to the herders by Igboho.
Governor Makinde faulted the move and explained that no one has the right to ask anyone else to leave any part of the country.
According to the governor, the common enemy of the people are hoodlums, cultists, armed robbers, kidnappers, and bandits not herders looking for pasture for their flock.
