Outcry as IGP orders arrest of Sunday Igboho


Social media reactions have trailed the alleged ‘bias’ action taken by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu against  Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, over an eviction order on Fulanis in Oyo State.

It was gathered that Adamu has ordered the arrest of the Yoruba freedom fighter.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President Mohammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, confirmed this in an interview with BBC Hausa.

Garba told BBC Hausa the IGP told him on the phone order had been given to the Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Ngozi Onadeko, to arrest Igboho immediately and transfer him to Abuja.

Igboho had ordered herdsmen in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to leave within seven days

He accused the Fulanis of causing banditry and killings in the state.

The activist was in Igangan in the Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State on Friday when Sunday Igboho and his supporters went to the Fulani settlement in the town to eject the Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir, and some other herdsmen accused of causing security problems in the area.

Igboho had last week issued a seven-day quit notice to the Seriki and his associates
