Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly called Sunday Igboho on Tuesday has said those that set fire on his house are “cowards” who hide under the dark to commit crime.
“They are cowards. They should have confronted me in daytime and should have come to my new house, where I am living to prove they are bold enough,” he said.
The Ibadan based agitator of Odudua republic who did not attribute the of burning his house to a particular tribe, however, suspected it must be collaborators from within.
“I wasn’t in the house when the incident happened. My brothers slept in the house, they are in the best position to say what they saw. I cannot attribute the attack to any tribe,” he said.
Speaking with reporters at his residence, Igboho said he lost over N50 million to the inferno, maintaining his stance that killer herders must leave the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer Olugbenga Fadeyi of the state had on Tuesday morning through the state confirmed that hoodlums came into the community in Hummer bus and Micra firing sporadically and set the house ablaze.
Igboho had last week visited Fulani settlement in Igangan, Ibarapa North Local Government Area where he gave them a seven-day ultimatum to leave the area.
He accused the Fulani community in the area of masterminding abductions, killings, and other criminal activities in the area.
