I Am Not Responsible For the Destruction of Seriki Fulani’s Properties — Sunday Igboho
…Says His Fulani Kinsmen Are The Culprits
Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, the Yoruba Culture activist, has denied the allegation of he and his thugs orchestrating the destruction of the house and property of the Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir, in the Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State; he said the Fulanis were responsible.
Igboho, speaking through his Personal Assistant, Salami Oladapo, said that he spent only two hours in the town, on the instruction of the police and the soldiers, who were told about Igboho’s coming.
Anarchy took stead in Igangan, Ibarapa, on Friday in the Fulani community, in which the houses and property of the Seriki Fulani, Alhaji Saliu Abdulkadir, were burnt.
Abdulkadir reported to media men that he, his wives, and children were sent out of the settlement, adding that 11 vehicles and houses were destroyed in the process.
The Seriki fled the community with his family, as discontented youths razed the settlement.
Speaking with new men, Igboho’s P.A, Oladapo, declined the involvement of his boss and his thugs in the arson.
He stated that “We were not the ones who did that. It was after we left; the boys know one another. They said they could not go with us, because the Fulani could attack them. So, they entered the settlement through a forest. They are not part of us. They are the indigenes. It was not Sunday Igboho’s men.
“They burnt the house after we left. Nobody can say they saw us at the scene of the event. The police Area Commander followed us when we had the town hall meeting in the area. The Fulani cannot just be raping and kidnapping our people.”
