President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Inspector General of Police Muhammed Abubakar to arrest Yoruba activist Sunday Igboho and his supporters if they continue to “disturb public peace” in Oyo State.
The president gave the order after Igboho stormed Igangan in Ibarapa in Oyo State to seek an explanation from the Fulani living in the area.
Sunday Igboho has been the leader of the movement to drive Fulani out of the state.
Sunday Adeyemo who is well known as Sunday Igboho gave a 7-day ultimatum to the Fulani to vacate Igangan, Oyo State regardless of the Nigerian Constitution that approves all citizens to live in any part of the country.
Defending his action in an interview with BBC Yoruba Service, he said it was in defence of the Yoruba people who were being killed and kidnapped for ransom and their farms destroyed.
According to him, the reason for his ultimatum was to drive the Fulani herdsmen away because of the havoc and criminal activities they carry out.
