Sunday Igboho issues fresh eviction notice to herdsmen in S/West
A self-styled Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has issued a fresh eviction notice on herdsmen in the six South-west states of Nigeria.
Mr Igboho issued the fresh notice in an interview anchored by his spokesperson, Oluyomi Koiki, on Wednesday.
“We want all Fulani on Yoruba land to leave. I, myself will monitor compliance to the eviction notice,” he said.
“I don’t issue an order without ensuring compliance. As from Monday, we don’t want to hear of any kidnapping in Yorubaland again. I will show them the stuff Yoruba people are made of.
“Tell President Buhari, if he doesn’t understand Yoruba, tell him in English Language that we don’t want bandits in our zone again. Work has begun already and as from Monday, I will begin combing all forests in Yoruba land.
“How can six million people be commanding about 250 million other Nigerians? Marriage is not by force. We can’t live with you again.
“Yoruba nation is a vehicle of salvation and I want all Yoruba to board the vehicle and have their seats.
“There is no going back on the agitation for the Yoruba nation. How can we go back when we are almost at our destination? Those who have not joined us should do so now because there’s no election coming in 2023. Yoruba will go,” Mr Igboho said.
Prior eviction notice
His latest eviction notice came five months after his earlier attempt to send herdsmen out of the region.
