Activist Sunday Igboho has arrived Ogun State as promised, to bring to an end the alleged criminal activities by suspected herdsmen.
The activist had promised to visit Ogun State in a video seen last Thursday.
This is coming after soldiers had reportedly escorted herdsmen to some villages in Ogun where herders were rejected. The soldiers were seen in viral videos assaulting residents of the village.
Sunday Igboho’s decision to pursue his agenda comes despite a meeting south-west governors held with herders where certain resolutions such as night and underage grazing were banned.
Remmy Hazzan, Special Adviser on Public Communications to Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, had said popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, well known as Sunday Igboho, is welcome in the state.
“Anybody who is hoping to help us with the security situation is welcome. Not only Sunday Igboho, whoever has what it takes to help us get security right is welcome in Ogun State,” Hazzan said.
Igboho had two weeks ago issued quit notice to Fulani herdsmen in Igangan, Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State over killings of Yoruba people by herdsmen.
At the expiration of the seven days ultimatum, he visited Ibarapa and told the Fulani herdsmen to leave after he addressed thousands of people in the area.
