The Fulani leader in Igangan, Alhaji Abdulkadir Saliu accuses Sunday Igboho of killing his only sibling.
The man acknowledges that Igboho is deadly. He added that fear always grips him whenever he hears his name.
It would be recalled that a popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho recently stormed Igangan, Ibarapa LGA, Oyo state to chase away Fulani herdsmen.
The Seriki Fulani of Igangan, Alhaji Abdulkadir Saliu has recounted his ordeals during their eviction by popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho.
Seriki at an interview with BBC Yoruba said he is a native of Ilorin Kwara State, but he followed his father to Ibarapa in 1972. And he had been living there before their eviction in 2021. His father was also buried there after his demise.
Seriki describes the day Sunday Igboho came to his settlement as the toughest day in his life. “The day Sunday Igboho came to my settlement is the toughest day in my life. I had never experienced such before. We were just two siblings. Sunday Igboho killed my younger brother. In fact whenever I hear his name fear always grips me because he’s deadly.” Seriki said.
Seriki who alleged that his property worth 500m was lost to the incident was asked by BBC Yoruba correspondent how he was able to accumulate such amount. And Seriki replies that he is a cattle seller. And has a lot of cows and thrives from it.
“I’m a cattle seller. Sunday Igboho really did me bad. My 1.1m under a bed was burnt. About 207 of my cows are also missing since our eviction”. He further listed: Lexus, Nissan, Toyota Corolla, Houses, other as parts of his properties that were destroyed.
Meanwhile, Seriki acknowledges that not only Yoruba in Ibarapa are being kidnapped but also Fulani. He noted that he had reported many and they got arrested, and currently in prison.
Seriki was finally asked if he can move back to Ibarapa. He replied “If the people accept and government assured that no problem I can move back. Because since my stay there God has been blessing me. But otherwise I can’t”.
