'I'm Saddened That Some Yorubas Encouraged Arsonists To Burn My House' - Igboho

From Godwin Akomah,  Southwest Bureau

Yoruba activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has expressed sadness and surprise that some Yorubas collaborated with those who razed his residence in the early hours of Tuesday.

Although he didn't disclosed who were the Yoruba  collaborators or the arsonists, claiming he does not have the full details of them.

Igboho who addressed the press at his new residence still in Soka area of Ibadan,  also lamented that the value of damaged items in the residence could worth N50m.

“What I find surprising is that some Yorubas are in support of the herdsmen to set my house on fire. I’m saddened by it
For now, I do not suspect anyone.

“When they knew they could fight, fire gunshots, and set a house ablaze, isn’t it where I stay that they are supposed to come? If they had come to the house where I stay, I would have had evidence for you people (journalists) because they won’t all escape.

“It’s either you meet their dead bodies or meet them with broken legs. I thank God that they applied wisdom by going to a house where they know that I don’t live and destroyed my properties and burnt it down.

 “Around 3.30am today, my younger ones residing at my old house rushed to my gate to wake me up, saying some bandits came to the house, fired gunshots, broke the gate and set the house ablaze. The two people at the house managed to escape. By the time I got there, the bandits had escaped. So, we called firefighters to help us put out the fire.

“These Fulanis are killing our brothers in our fatherland. They’re killing, raping, and kidnapping. All the things they are doing to us are not good. That’s why I’m trying to unite our people so that we can chase them away for peace to reign in Yorubaland,” he said.
