On Saturday, January 23, 2021, the Nigerian government confirmed that Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police, ordered the arrest of Sunday Adeyemo, the Yoruba activist, also known as Sunday Igboho.
According to the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu claimed the order of arrest came after the activist gave Fulani in Oyo State an ultimatum to exit the state.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu was quoted as saying this on Saturday during an interview with BBC Hausa.
The BBC quoted the presidential aide as saying an order had been given to Ngozi Onadeko, the Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, to arrest Sunday Igboho immediately and transfer him to FCT Abuja.
“Garba said he just got off the telephone with the Inspector General of the Nigeria Police, who confirmed to him that he had ordered the arrest of Igboho, who is to be brought to Abuja,” the BBC said.
“Igboho is among topics that have generated public discussion on social media in Nigeria on Friday since he visited Igangan in Ibarapa Local Government (of Oyo State) where he insisted that all Fulani residents in Oyo State must leave as long as kidnapping continues.
Recall that Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba activist, has on Saturday made good his threat to expel Fulani Herdsmen from Igangan in Oyo State.
Igangan is a community in Ibarapa North Local Government Area.
Last Friday, Sunday Igboho and his supporters stormed the area and gave the Fulani herdsmen one week to vacate the place or face the consequences.
