Sunday Igboho issues 7-day ultimatum to killer-Fulani herdsmen to vacate Southwest
Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho has issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen killing people in Southwest communities to vacate.
Igboh0, in a statement on Sunday, said while “we believe in the peaceful coexistence in Nigeria regardless of tribe, religion and political cleavages, we are issuing a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen killing our people in any part of South-West to vacate our communities now.
“This warning is very important. We are not going to take laws into our hands, but they must leave.”
He called on the Police, the Department of State Security, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Nigerian Army to address the fragile security breaches now before the situation gets out of hand.
Igboho stated that he and his group were saddened that the killings of farmers innocently earning their living had started rearing their ugly heads again.
He said this worrisome development called for sober reflection bearing in mind the current hardship in the country.
Igboho added that the recent ambush and killing of operatives of Amotekun Security Corps, including other security agents who were trying to restore normalcy in the Iwere-Ile community after the suspected Fulani herdsmen had murdered “our kinsmen in Iwere-Ile must be investigated and the culprits must be made to face the music.”
He commended the state Governor, Seyi Makinde and his counterpart in Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun for their efforts to ensure peace and healthy developments in their respective states while challenging the heads of security agencies to act now before the situation worsens.
Igboho said he believed in the capability of the Federal Government under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu to ensure and guarantee the safety of lives and properties, particularly farmers in Nigeria.
“We must not tolerate any act that can further push up the prices of food and other edible commodities. Nigerians and our farmers in agrarian settlements need security presence now so that they can engage in small or large-scale farming activities for food production.
“These killings must stop now for the benefit of all,” he stated.
