Leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has reacted to the Inspector General of Police’s order for the arrest of Oyo State youth leader, Sunday Igboho, over eviction notice to Fulani herdsmen in the state.
Igboho held rallies this week in the South West, ordering herdsmen to leave the state following the incessant robbery incidents and kidnappings in the state allegedly papertrated by the criminal elements among them.
Igboho also dared the Oyo state Governor, Seyi Makinde to come and arrest him for defending his people.
Following these developments, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, on Friday ordered the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Ngozi Onadeko to arrest Igboho and send him over to Abuja.
In reaction to this order, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, on Saturday, January 23, wrote;
“Before your very eyes, Nigeria is turning to a pathetic APARTHEID State, mercilessly implementing the supremacy of one tribe over all others. And you do nothing. Incredible!”
Last week, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, of Ondo State issued a seven day ultimatum to herdsmen occupying Ondo state forests to vacate the state accusing them of banditry and incessant killings. The eultimatum expires on Sunday January 24.
In reaction to the ultimatum, the Presidency stated that no one has right to tell herdsmen where to live.
In another twist, the National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo in a new interview declared that nobody has the power to remove Fulani herdsmen from the state’s forests.
Bodejo claimed the Fulani’s own all the land in Nigeria and they value cows more than human beings. He said the Fulanis have settled in the Ondo Forest reserves for over 250 years and will not obey anybody to leave the place.
