How Buhari’s ‘failure’ led to Igboho’s prominence, agitation – Afenifere leader

Published

on

Leader of Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has said embattled Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho rose to prominence on the back of President Muhammadu Buhari’s failure at protecting lives and properties.

Adebanjo spoke on Thursday on a monitored Arise TV programme.  According to the Afenifere leader, no help was rendered when Fulani people were raping, killing and kidnapping in Igboho’s area.

He pointed out that Igboho’s uncle who had returned from America to establish a farm also fell victim to the atrocities committed in the area.

He said this made the rights activist rise in retaliation.

“It is because of the failure of Buhari to protect lives and property in his area,” Adebanjo said.

“The Fulani people there are raping, kidnapping, and depriving the farmers of their farmland. They killed his uncle who came all the way from America to establish a farm. They destroyed the farm and killed him.

“They kidnapped the monarch in the area, the children and raped the women.

“He rose in retaliation because neither the federal nor the state government came to their aid to arrest or stop the culprit.

“That is the action that caused the reaction of Igboho.”

Adebanjo added that Igboho was not referring to all Fulani when he issued an ultimatum that required killer herdsmen to vacate the South-West.

TheNewsGuru.com, TNG reports that Adebanjo’s reaction is coming days after authorities in the Republic of Benin arrested Igboho while he was trying to board a plane on his way to Germany after he had been declared wanted by the Department of State Services (DSS).
