Fulani herdsmen have allegedly invaded the popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Igboho mother’s residence in Oyo State.
Chief Sunday Igboho early on Sunday was in Lagos seeking supports for Oduduwa Nation.
In a tweet, Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, confirmed this via Igboho’s Twitter handle.
The tweets stated: “Chief Sunday Adeyemo’s mother’s house at Igboho was invaded by three Fulani men this evening around 7:54 pm.
“Two of them escaped, one is currently held at Igboho police station.”
Femi Fani-Kayode also confirmed the development on his Twitter page.
He stated: “Three terrorists were caught in Sunday Igboho’s mother’s house and not two. One was caught and two escaped.
“I just spoke to Sunday Igboho and he told me that two foreign Fulani terrorists were apprehended in his mother’s home in Igboho, Oyo state this evening.
“Their mission was to harm Mama. One of them escaped whilst the other is with the police. Those that sent them are playing with fire.”
He added: “I am appealing to those who are behind these provocations against his person and reckless attacks to desist from this nonsense.
“Sunday is a heroic figure in the South West and by far the most powerful, vocal and popular figure in Yorubaland today.
“Harming him or his family members will not augur well for the peace and stability of our nation.”
