Suspected Fulani Herdsmen Attack Residence of Sunday Igboho’s Mother

Three suspected Fulani Herdsmen have attacked the residence of the mother of popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho, in Igboho, Oyo State.

According to the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, who disclosed this late Sunday night, two of the suspected herdsmen are at large while one was arrested and handed over to the police.

He stated: “Three terrorists were caught in Sunday Igboho’s mother’s house and not two. One was caught and two escaped.

“I just spoke to Sunday Igboho and he told me that two foreign Fulani terrorists were apprehended in his mother’s home in Igboho, Oyo state this evening.

“Their mission was to harm Mama. One of them escaped whilst the other is with the police. Those that sent them are playing with fire.”

He added: “I am appealing to those who are behind these provocations against his person & reckless attacks to desist from this nonsense.

“Sunday is a heroic figure in the South West and by far the most powerful, vocal and popular figure in Yorubaland today.

“Harming him or his family members will not augur well for the peace and stability of our nation.”

The spokesman to the Activist, Olayomi Koiki, also confirmed this on Sunday night via his Twitter handle.

He wrote: “Chief Sunday Adeyemo’s mother’s house at Igboho was invaded by three Fulani men this evening around 7:54 pm.

“Two of them escaped, one is currently held at Igboho police station.”
