26.01.2021 Uncategorized Sunday Igboho Fingers Yoruba Collaborators in the Burning of his House

Published 26th Jan, 2021


Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as ‘Sunday Igboho’, has said that his house could not have been attacked without the help of some Yoruba collaborators.

While speaking with BBC Yoruba earlier today, he condemned the attack on his house by hoodlums who, according to eyewitnesses, spoke Hausa and drove into the house in a convoy, shooting sporadically.

Although he said he did not suspect anyone, Igboho noted that some Yoruba elements must have been part of the attack.

“I don’t suspect anyone,” he said in Yoruba. “What I know is that if some Yoruba people have not been involved, [it wouldn’t have happened].”

Igboho’s latest romance with the media reached another crescendo, today, after hoodlums attacked his house in the ‘Soka’ area of Ibadan at about 3:30am and burnt down properties worth N50million.  

He has dominated the spotlight in the last few days for his stand against the murderous activities of some herdsmen in the South West.

After he led an army of his supporters to the house of a Fulani leader in the Ibarapa area of Oyo State and gave a seven-day ultimatum for the Fulani to quit the area, the Inspector General of Police ordered for his arrest.

But Nigerians, especially those of the Yoruba origin, have used their social media handles to show admiration for Igboho’s courage.

Igboho also used the opportunity to inform Nigerians that he didn’t have Twitter or Facebook account.

“Anyone writing on Twitter or Facebook in my name is an impostor,” he said.
