A Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Igboho, has revealed that Fulanis in Igangan in Oyo boasted that only President Muhammadu Buhari can order them out of the State.
He spoke in an interview published on Mama SOJ Vlog on Sunday.
Igboho said the confrontation occurred at the Seriki Fulani’s place last Friday.
Igangan is a community in Ibarapa North Local Government Area.
The activist had gone to meet the Seriki, Saliu Kadri, to protest the killing of Yoruba individuals in recent times.
He listed the murder of an Oyo businessman and prominent farmer, Dr. Fatai Aborode, an Igangan prince, among others.
The aggrieved grassroots mobilizer also decried the massacre of Alhaja Serifat Adisa, the owner of Subawah Petroleum, and her two children.
Igboho recalled that some traditional rulers asked him to visit them over the spate of insecurity in Oyo.
“When I got there, they complained of the murders that occurred lately. They expressed their helplessness, that the situation had become unbearable and they wanted the Fulani out.”
Igboho disclosed that the monarchs insisted the Northerners were behind killings and kidnappings in their domains.
“I asked about the head, they mentioned Seriki; that no one can confront him. I said how? They replied that Seriki is so powerful that when the police arrested his sons, he threatened a crisis within 72 hours. Of course the police released them,” he said.
Igboho lamented that three checkpoints were mounted before getting to the Fulani leader’s residence.
“When I got there, the Seriki called a senior Police officer. I said no problem, he gave me the phone. Just then, one of my boys called my attention that a Fulani man had pointed a gun at me, I approached and dared him to shoot. We took the gun.
“Soon after, another person fired a shot. We rushed and grabbed the pumping (pump-action shotgun). Then I went to Seriki and told him ‘These are guns’. He apologized. At that point, I insisted those who killed Doctor (Aborode), Alhaja, etc must be fished out. His response was ‘I am scolding the boys who did the job’. I said really?
“What amazed me was the type of vehicles in his compound. New Camry, Venza, Range (Rover)….cars of about N15million. I wondered if it was through N80,000 cows that he made all this money. Such funds can only be through kidnapping.
“The Fulanis around Seriki’s compound that day were more than 1,000. They were issuing threats. They said it was their land and asked if we didn’t know the President is one of them. They boasted only Buhari can order them out. I said oh, so Buhari told you to be kidnapping and killing us.
“I further stated if that is the case, you all should leave. If you cannot produce the killers of Dr. Aborode, Alhaja, Fatai, and many others, as well those who abducted and beheaded our people, the madman will murder the person staring at him. If Seriki fails to come forward with the culprits by this Friday and do not leave Igangan, we will meet.”
Asked if he is not scared that the Fulani are in control of the federal government, Igboho said they are free to own whatever they like.
“They do not own God or Yoruba land. Buhari is not from Oyo, the only power he has is to kill me on Oyo soil”, he declared.
Hours after the popular figure issued the ultimatum, Igangan residents alerted that some armed Fulani herdsmen attacked four farmers on their way back home.
Two of the victims allegedly died. The skull of one of them, Seun, was cut open with machete. The video is circulating.
Meanwhile, the Oyo State Government has commenced investigation on Igboho’s threat. This is amid his supporters’ warning against his arrest.
