Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has ordered the arrest of Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho over the quit order issued to Fulani herdsmen in Oyo State.
The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made this known to BBC Hausa on Friday.
The President’s spokesperson reportedly said the IGP instructed the new Police Commissioner in Oyo State, Ngozi Onadeko, to arrest Igboho and transfer him to Abuja.
Igboho, a youth leader and activist in Oyo State had issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani herders to leave Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State.
The freedom fighter insisted that Fulani herders must fish out the killers of prominent Yoruba sons and daughters. He said that the reason for asking the herders to leave is because of unending killings and kidnapping.
