PM News reported that Adeyemo, popularly known as Igboho, at a rally in the town told the people that he had a meeting with the police commissioner in Oyo, Ngozi Onadeko, and her deputy.
According to a video posted on the internet, Igboho said he was not arrested by the police despite the order of Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde.
The youth leader who spoke in Yoruba said the police authorities assured him that more policemen will be drafted to the area to maintain law and order.
He appealed to the people to cooperate with the police area commander and other policemen.
Igboho said he got assurances from the police that security will improve in the area.
Meanwhile, Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho) has received unexpected backing from Middle Belt Forum.
The forum had called on the inspector-general of police, Mohammed Adamu not to arrest Igboho over the quit notice he issued to herdsmen and the violence that followed it.
It also applauded Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu over his notice to unregistered herdsmen in the state's forest reserves.
