The Oyo State Government has faulted a quit notice given to Fulani herdsmen by a renowned freedom fighter, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Igboho, to leave Ibarapa.

Naija News reports that Adeyemo had issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani herders to leave Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State.

Speaking on a radio programme in Ibadan on Tuesday, Adeyemo hinted that the Fulani herders have more sophisticated weapons than operatives of Amotekun.

The freedom fighter insisted that Fulani herders must fish out the killers of prominent Yoruba sons and daughters. He said that the reason for asking the herders to leave is because of unending killings and kidnapping.

Reacting to Igboho’s ultimatum, the Special Adviser to Governor Seyi Makinde on Security Matters, Fatai Owoseni, urged Adeyemo not to fan embers of disunity.

The former Lagos State Commissioner of Police noted that everyone is free to live in any part of the country and has freedom of movement.

He said: “As Nigerians, everyone is free to live in any part of the country.

“We should be careful of what we say. It is not good to ask them to leave. When we say that, we should think about our own people living with them in their areas too. We should not fan the embers of disunity.”
