Yoruba Nation Agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho on Monday evening stormed Igangan in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo state.
His visit, according to his spokesman Olayomi Koiki, was over weekend’s killings and destruction by suspected herders in the village.
WITHIN NIGERIA recall how several residents of Igangan community were killed in the early hours of Sunday while many houses, including the Palace of Ashi of Igangan were burnt by suspected herdsmen.
Igboho, in the now-viral video, got to the town in a convoy with many residents cheering.
He was spotted waving to people from a white Toyota Hilux while his supporters escorted him into the town with their motorbikes.
During the visit, it was learnt Igboho also tried to comb the forests.
Igboho’s spokesman Olayomi Koiki said the visit of Igboho was to assess the level of destruction witnessed in the village and to also relate with the villagers.
Meanwhile, a sigangan of Igangan Oba Lasisi Adeoye has accused the evicted Seriki Fulani Soliu Abdulkadri of sponsoring the deadly attack on his community in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State at the weekend.
Oba Adeoye made the accusation yesterday while featuring on Ibadan-based Fresh FM 105.9 Programme, “The Situation Room”.
The traditional ruler said: “It was Seriki Fulani that was evicted from this land that came to attack us. He sent those people that collect money to fight wars to attack us on Saturday. They entered the town around 11pm.”
Asked if he had any premonition of the attack, he said: “No. We didn’t have any information to that effect. We’ve been trying our best and our people have been preparing for about three months that they would come, but we didn’t have any solution.
“What made us to suffer a great defeat was that we didn’t have good ammunition to fight. We don’t have money to buy good and modern ammunition and we don’t have the type of ammunition they are using.
“The police also don’t have the kind of ammunition the gunmen are using. We don’t have any ammunition to fight. We too can buy the weapons to defend ourselves, but it is very expensive. If we see money, we will buy.”
