Activist Sunday Igboho has revealed why he’s advocating for the exit of Fulani from Oyo State.
Igboho and some residents had gone to the palace of the Sarkin Fulani of Oyo state, Saliu Abdulkadir, to register their grouse on the atrocities alleged to have been perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen in Oyo State.
He gave a seven-day ultimatum for them to vacate the state, which was challenged by the state governor, Seyi Makinde.
Speaking to BBC, Igboho said, “They are saying I am not in government and that I am meddling with what does not concern me. If there is a government and it is not doing what it is supposed to do, the people that voted will rise up,” Igboho said.
“It’s not like I commanded the Fulani to leave our land or that I suddenly said something arbitrarily. For like two weeks now, these Fulani people in Ibarapa have been killing our people.
“Look at this Doctor Fatai, who went abroad for many years to work; he made his money, came back to his father’s village in Igangan, built farms and employed people to work with him. Fulani people ate the farm for him, he approached the Seriki of the Fulani that this ought not to be, and they killed him there.”
