The Miyetti Allah, on Saturday, called on security agencies to arrest Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho following the alleged assault on the Seriki Fulani of Oyo state, Alhaji Saliu Abdulkadir.
The chairman of Miyetti Allah in the state, Ibrahim Jiji, stated this while speaking with newsmen in Ibadan, the state capital on Saturday.
Jiji noted that the development has seen Fulani in the state live in fear while some of them had fled their homes to avoid an attack.
He urged Yoruba and Fulani residents to allow peace to reign in Oyo state.
He said, “We are all Nigerians. We appreciate and love the governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde for saying the truth. We need to join hand together to ensure we have a peaceful society. Our people are not happy and many of them are living in fear. Some had fled their homes.”
“We want justice for Seriki Fulani. All those that perpetrated the evil must face the wrath of the law. They are not powerful than the government. Who is Sunday Igboho and why is he more powerful than the government?”
“I have said time without number that we have criminals among all the tribe and not peculiar to Fulani. Those who are suffering the injustice now are not the criminals they are hunting for.”
“These are good people and not criminals. The government should do the needful to ensure peace returns to the Ibarapa axis.”
