OVERVIEW OF: I didn’t expect any Yoruba person to join Fulani herdsmen to burn my house - Sunday Igboho
Popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo Igboho has reacted to the fire that gutted his house on Tuesday.
While addressing the press, Igboho expressed disappointment that some Yorubas supported those he called “Fulani herdsmen” to torch his house.
While saying, he would not mention any individual in particular, Igboho told journalists at his house in Ibadan that without the support of some Yorubas, nobody could have been able to set his house on fire.
According to him, everything destroyed in that house is worth millions of Naira.
Igboho wondered why the suspected arsonists did not come to where he lives presently when they knew they wanted to fight him.
“When they know they wanted to fight me, why not come to where I live to shoot or torch the house? If they had come here, I would have evidence to show you, because all of them could not have escaped. I will hold them down till you come to see those who came to attack me. But, they went to my other house. I don’t know how to describe those people. They said they came in about five vehicles. My two brothers who were there ran to safety, they were not injured.
“I didn’t expect any Yoruba person to stand behind Fulani herdsmen to burn my house, just because I want to stop killings, banditry and kidnapping in Yoruba land.
“If some Yorubas didn’t give them the needed support, they would not have come to torch my building.
“But, that will not stop me from achieving peace and security in Yoruba land,” Igboho said.
