Tension As Oyo Residents Storm Igangan to Chase Fulanis Out Of their Land

Residents of Igangan in Oyo state have come togather in a bid to force Fulanis out of their town.

According to DailyPost, a Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho spearheaded the expulsion of Fulanis from Igangan in Oyo State.

Igangan is a community in Ibarapa North Local Government Area.

Igboho and his supporters had  stormed the area last Friday and gave the Fulani one week to leave.

The grassroots mobilizer issued the deadline when he confronted the Seriki Fulani, Saliu Kadri.

Igboho accused Kadri’s subjects of killing Yoruba individuals.

He listed the assassination of Oyo business man, Fatai Aborode, Alhaja Serifat Adisa and her children, an Igangan prince, among others.

Igboho disclosed he acted on the request of traditional rulers.

The monarchs protested they were helpless about incessant killings and kidnappings.

Oyo State Government condemned the quit notice.

Governor Seyi Makinde warned against eviction of any ethic group and vowed to deal with troublemakers.

After the expiration of the ultimatum, Igboho made good his threat as he organised his supporters today who reportedly confronted the Fulanis to chase them away.
