Yoruba activist Sunday Igboho has vowed that Fulani herdsmen must be driven out of the territory of Yoruba.
He responded to the order of the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, for his arrest.
Igboho last week gave Fulani a seven-day ultimatum to leave the region, living and doing business in Igangan, Ibarapa North Oyo State Local Government.
And a week later, he made good his threat when he and his followers stormed the city, demanding that the Fulani had to leave the region.
S.A. to the President on Media and Advertising, Garba Shehu told the BBC yesterday that IGP Mohammed, Inspector General of Police, had directed Igboho to be detained for giving warning to Fulani herdsmen.
In reaction, he tweeted on Saturday night, “And it’s not a crime to Kill doctor akorede? whose farm was invaded and destroyed by Fulani cows, later went to Seriki Fulani house to lay complain, but was tied and butchered and nothing happened?
“This one we have started here in Oyo State will not end here. We are going to other parts of the South-West. Tell herdsmen in Ekiti State, Ondo State and Osun states; in fact, in all South-West states that we are coming.
“This is not about politics, money or fame but the freedom of Yoruba nation from the killer Fulani herdsmen.
“FG did not order the Inspector general of Police to find and arrest the killer of Dr Aborode, Oko Oloyu and other prominent Yoruba elites kidnapped at Ibarapa Oyo state but they are planning to arrest me. Let’s see how it goes.
“We are taking back our land from all these Fulani herdsmen terrorising us. May God help us.”
