Suspected Fulani herdsmen on Sunday evening attacked the house of the mother of popular Yoruba warlord, Sunday Igboho.
This was revealed to the world in a video posted by Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki on his official Facebook page with a caption which stated: “Chief Sunday Adeyemo’s Mothers House At Igboho was invaded by 3 Fulani this evening around 7: 45pm. 2 of them escape. One is currently held at Igboho police station.”
The former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode also confirmed the incident in his post on his official Facebook page on Sunday evening.
He wrote: “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 (see below). Those that sent them are playing with fire!
“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 two 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 that are behind these dangerous 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.”
