Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho has said that his life can only be taken by God, emphasizing that no human being can kill him.
Igboho who gave exit notice to herdsmen who were accused of committing various crimes in the Oyo region of Ibarapa stated this while reacting to how his family members may be worried over his safety.
Igboho even was not bothered after his houses in Ibadan, Oyo state capital was gutted by fire by those who opposed his fighting. He still went on his course to chased herdsmen from a village in Ogun state.
Sunday Igboho, speaking in an interview with a news source on Sunday, revealed that his family is concerned about the fight he has been battling.
“No human being that can kill me, so I am not distracted to accomplish my mission to pursue herdsmen out of our land. ” he said.
“I have no fear of anybody, but God. God is the soul owner and controller. It is only God who is capable of taking my life. No human being can take my life. “
“My children threaten me and tell me every day to forget my course. They wave the warning sign at me. My wife is really concerned about what I am fighting for, but I have to do this for my people.”
“I am worried about my people, who are being dehumanized and marginalized for no reason in their own territory. Many who are expected to solve the problem actually fold their arms and watch because they are corrupted. This fight is for the benefit of all so that they will all live in peace.”
Igboho said he was prepared to cooperate with Governor Seyi Makinde to the degree that the Governor ” recognizes that they have a fundamental right to protect the people and their interests. “
“We are confident that the governor can sense the pulse of the citizens who feel the heat of the killer herdsmen, and we believe that he will rise to the occasion and do what is required,” he said.
If they call me for a meeting to discuss the security problem in order to put an end to the impunity of the killer herders, I will gladly oblige them. I am ready for any genuine approach to stop the madness of the herders in Yorubaland against our parents, brothers, and sisters.
