The embattled native of the Igangan community in Oyo, Sunday Igboho, has opened up on his relationship with Governor Seyi Makinde that has now gone sour.
Igboho, after his house in Soa town, was razed by some unidentified gunmen, said his friendship with Makinde who recently ordered his arrest dates back to before the 2019 gubernatorial election in Oyo.
The now-famous Oyo resident said he knew Makinde through a former governor of the state, Rasheed Ladoja who advised him to support the then governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
He revealed that when the bond began to blossom, the governor in 2013 commissioned the very building that was attacked on Tuesday and even went as far as providing a 500kva transformer for his street at the time, The Nation reports.
However, Igboho said things changed when the governor failed to deliver on his campaign promise with particular respect to security in Oyo.
“Governor Seyi Makinde and I have been together for a long time. He commissioned my house that was razed by hoodlums in 2013 and also provided a 500kva transformer for my street.
“I supported him and campaigned for him during the 2019 governorship election in Oyo, I met him through former governor of Oyo state, Rasheed Ladoja.
‘’Rasheed Ladoja encouraged me to support Makinde during the election 2019 and I showed my utmost support because I never rejected any advice from Ladoja but Makinde never kept to his words due to the insecurity in the state and the incessant killings. So I took it upon myself to restore security by issuing the quit notice to the herders in the state.’’
Meanwhile, the police in Oyo state had given some details about the burnt house of Igboho.
The state police spokesperson, Olugbenga Fadeyi, said the command received a report that hoodlums loaded in a bus and taxi set the house ablaze.
Legit.ng gathered that Fadeyi also said the police were told that the arsonists shot in the air several times as they put fire to the house which was located at the Soka area of Ibadan.
