The Ooni of Ife has warned Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba right activist, to be very careful of politicians seeking to hijack his agitations against killer herdsmen in the SouthWest.
During an interview with Arise TV, the monarch advised Sunday Igboho not to take the laws into his hands but to allow constituted authorities to handle the Fulani herdsmen menace in the region.
However, the monarch, commended Sunday Igboho for taking on the campaign against Fulani herdsmen, adding that He (Igboho) has done well and the world has heard him, but everything should be done in moderation.
The Ooni of Ife further warned him to back down so that the Nigerian government can take over the battle to avoid politicians hijacking the movement.
The Ooni’s word read: “Let us be very objective. He (Igboho) is being a mouthpiece for the downtrodden. He came up and everybody is listening now but my advice to him as a traditional ruler is that he needs to be very careful so that the politicians won’t hijack the whole motive from him.
“Igboho has done well and has been praised, but he shouldn’t take laws into his hands.
“We have the governor in the state who is the chief security officer of the state and Mr. President has invited him (Makinde).
“Let the right authorities do what is right.
“We know that the bandits are everywhere in the country. Igboho should not take laws into his hands. We have laws in Nigeria, and we should follow them. Let the right people chosen do and follow what they are supposed to do,” Oba Ogunwusi advised.
