Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has said President Muhammadu Buhari has been warned by Yoruba leaders not to order his arrest.
Sunday Igboho has been in the news in the last few weeks after he issued a seven-day quit notice to Fulani herdsmen in Igangan, a community in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State.
He has been accused of inciting some of his supporters to destroy houses and cars, including those of Saliu Kadri, the Seriki Fulani of Igangan.
The violence prompted the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to direct the Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Ngozi Onadeko, to arrest Sunday Igboho and transfer him to Abuja. But the police is yet to arrest him.
However, in a video posted by former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, on his Facebook page, Sunday Igboho, while addressing a crowd of supporters, said Yoruba leaders are not pleased with the killing of their people by herdsmen.
He said the leaders have voiced their concerns and have backed him, adding that it would be a declaration of war if he was arrested.
“We thank all our fathers, including the Aare Onakakanfo. They have all spoken up. Now that we are here, I beg you in the name of God, I don’t want us to disrespect any of our Yoruba leaders.
“You people are just unaware… I swear by God, they are also not happy with what is going on but now they are speaking up and won’t condone what is going on.
“Look at all the Yoruba leaders that have spoken up; the way Yorubas are warning him, Buhari can’t attempt it. That now, it is war, if they dare arrest Igboho, it will turn to war.
“See the way Fani-Kayode has spoken up and he is not joking with what he is saying. They are killing us, kidnapping us, treating us badly in our father land,” he said in Yoruba.
