On Sunday, some suspected gunmen allegedly invaded the residence of the mother of Self-acclaimed Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho.
This was disclosed by Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, via his Twitter handle on Sunday night.
According to Koiki, three Fulani herders attacked the woman’s house a few minutes before 8pm on Sunday.
The spokesman said while one was apprehended, the other two escaped. The one arrested has been handed over to the police.
“Chief Sunday Adeyemo’s mother’s house at Igboho was invaded by three Fulani men this evening around 7:54pm. Two of them escaped, one is currently held at Igboho police station,” he wrote.
Also, a former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode confirmed the development on his twitter page.
He tweeted, “I just spoke to Sunday Igboho and he told me that 3 foreign Fulani terrorists were apprehended in his mother’s home in Igboho, Oyo state this evening.
“Their mission was to harm Mama.
“Two of them escaped whilst the other is with the police.Those that sent them are playing with fire!
“Here is the one that was caught. He is with the police right now. Sadly the others escaped.
“First of all they burnt down Sunday’s house in Ibadan. Secondly a soldier and a fake soldier were caught spying on his Ibadan home.
“Thirdly three terrorists are caught sneaking into his mothers home with a clear intention to harm her.
“This is a man whose input brought peace to our nation just two weeks ago and helped to bring to an end the Northern embargo of food to the South after he guaranteed the peace and security of innocent Nigerian Fulanis in the South West.
“I am appealing to those who are behind these provocations against his person and reckless attacks to desist from this nonsense.”
He described Sunday Igboho as 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,” he added.
