An Oduduwa Republic agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, reportedly arrived in Abeokuta, Ogun State, to flush out bad eggs among the Fulani herders in the state.
Igboho recently appeared in the news after an ultimatum he issued to herders in the northern Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to leave within seven days, accusing the Fulani leadership of being behind the growing instability in the state.
The Yoruba activist few days ago promised to visit Ogun after soldiers allegedly escorted herdsmen to graze in some villages in the Yewa North Local Government Area of the state and brutalised some residents in defence of the herders.
It was learnt that one of the residents, identified simply as Mulero, was beaten mercilessly, leaving him with serious injuries, for insisting that the herdsmen would not be allowed to graze.
When asked if the state government was ready for the ‘visit’ by Igboho on Saturday, Remmy Hazzan, Special Adviser on Public Communications to Governor Dapo said any stakeholders who would help the security architecture of the state was welcome.
“Anybody who is hoping to help us with the security situation is welcome. Not only Sunday Igboho, whoever has what it takes to help us get security right is welcome in Ogun State,” Hazzan told The PUNCH.
An aide to Ighoho told SaharaReporters on Monday that the activist left Ibadan around 10am in the morning and was currently in Abeokuta where he was expected to meet some top government officials.
“We are in Abeokuta now, Baba (Ighoho) is ready to flush out all the criminal Fulani herdsmen in Yewa land. We are ready for them,” he said.
