Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned the alleged attack by suspected Fulani herdsmen on the home of popularly Yoruba activists, Sunday Igboho.
Naija News had earlier reported the herdsmen on Sunday allegedly attacked the home of the mother of Sunday Igboho.
This was made known by Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, in a post on his Twitter handle on Sunday evening.
According to Koiki, the three Fulani herders attacked the woman’s house a few minutes before 8pm on Sunday, adding that one was apprehended and while the other two escaped.
Reacting in a post on Twitter, Fani-Kayode warned those behind the attack to desist from the ‘nonsense’.
He wrote: “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 SW.
“I am appealing to those who are behind these provocations against his person & 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.
“Three terrorists were caught in Sunday Igbho’s mothers house and not two. One was caught and two escaped.”
