Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, has stated he’s not scared of the police arresting him over the eviction notice he gave to the Fulanis in Oyo state.
In an interview with BBC Yoruba, Igboho stated he has been listening to that there are plans to get him arrested. He stated he’s not scared and that each one he’s doing is for the curiosity of his folks, the Yorubas. According to him, the kings in Yoruba land are scared of talking up for concern of being deposed by the authorities.
”They say I am not half of the authorities. Why am I meddling in the affairs that’s not my enterprise? I am meddling in it as a result of I am a Yoruba man and if the authorities do not do the issues that the individuals who voted for them anticipate them to do, then the folks have the proper to speak.
It’s not like I simply gave a command or stated one thing that simply got here out from my thoughts.
Look at our physician, Dr. Fatai, a PhD holder who’s a Yoruba man. He labored overseas for a few years and got here again with cash. He began a farm in his father’s place and employed so many of our folks.
Fulanis went there to scatter the farm. He went to meet the Seriki Fulanis to inform him of what his folks had achieved. They tied him and killed him.
There are so many individuals that these Fulanis have killed in such method. They kidnapped some and collected cash. They’ve collected N7 million, N10 million, N11 million…in our personal fathers land.
These issues harm me a lot. That was why I went there, to inform them that you simply folks have been dwelling with us for years, we did not battle with you guys.
This was what I used to be telling the Seriki Fulani when his folks pulled a gun at me. I collected the gun from one of them. Another one pulled a cutlass whereas one other one pulled a gun and fired. If you watch the video correctly, he shot the gun at me earlier than I collected the gun from them.
I instructed them I did not come to battle and that even when I got here to battle, they would not be ready to stand up to me.
I instructed them that in the event that they can not discover a resolution to the killings of my folks, it is healthier for them to go away.
All these issues do not have to do with faith, I simply need Yorubas to be at peace.
For the previous 4 days now they’ve been threatening me with arrest, I am not scared.
All the obas that have been there have been pleased and stated that the struggling is sufficient, they do not need Fulanis anymore. That the killings is sufficient and that it is their topics which can be been killing. The Obas have been silent as a result of they’re scared of being deposed by the authorities in the event that they converse up.
These Fulanis kidnapped a king’s son and collected N4 million ransom earlier than they launched him.
If care is not taken, the Fulanis will kidnap a king and ask his topics to come and pay ransom.
We Yorubas are nonetheless sleeping and conserving quiet.”he stated
