The embattled Sarkin Fulani of Igangan, Salihu Abdulkadir, who was evicted by Sunday Igboho has opened up on why the natives of Igangan and Igboho are allegedly after his life.
Speaking in an interview with newsmen on Sunday, he said that a prominent politician was behind his forceful eviction.
He said, ” The politician led Sunday Igboho to his house to issue the quit notice to him which was followed by the attack on his house on January 22, 2021.”
He added that the prominent politician behind his ordeal are the ones sponsoring some thugs who are also kidnappers. He added that some of them were arrested last year.
“I have assisted the police several times to apprehend kidnap suspects irrespective of whether they are of Fulani or Yoruba origin.
“At a point, that man approached me to rescue twins arrested over an alleged kidnap case and now in prison,” he stated.
The Sarkin Fulani said that all the allegations levelled against him are totally untrue.
” How do I now become a kidnap kingpin when I am the one who reports and helps the police to apprehend suspects in kidnap cases.”?
He noted that he has contributed immensely to the socio-economic development of Igangan town in the last 50 years, lamenting that the people of the town still evicted him
