The present strongman of Yorubaland, Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho has expressed anger over the restiveness of Fulani herdsmen in Yorubaland.
Igboho who was speaking on Fresh FM with Abolade Salami on a program tagged “Dende Oro”, he maintained that it is high time Yoruba must wake up from their slumber and defend their territory.
He frowned at how Fulanis are maltreating Yoruba in their land and acting as if they can go free. He noted that though Amotekun was was formed to tackle crimes by Fulani herdsmen saying but some noticeable failure is traceable to how the security outfit was founded.
According to him, the Fulani herdsmen have superior weapons than what Amotekun corps have. He added that men recruited into the Amotekun are educated persons and not those who are fortified with traditional powers.
He said: “Amotekun shouldn’t be for those who are educated but for local traditionalists who traditionally fortified. Government supposed to involved Are Onakakanfo and other traditionalists like OPC, Agbekoya, local hunters and if I am invited, I’m ready to render help. I have men who can assist if situation gets out of hands.
“We should not blame insecurity on religion but on our bad leaders. Northerners are taking good care of their people in the region while Yoruba are shortchanged. They says we are one Nigeria but Northerners are enjoining the largesse while Yoruba people are suffering”, he said.
Sunday Igboho while speaking on Ibarapa evicted notice to Fulani people, he said:” One Jabele called my attention to how Fulani men are maltreating Yoruba in the area and how they are killing, kidnapping and their Seriki collecting ransom from their victims to make life uncomfortable for our people in the area. I intervened after the people and leaders in the area called me to intervene”, he said.
