Suspected Fulani herdsmen have invaded the residence of the mother of Sunday Igboho, his spokesperson said on Sunday.
Igboho, whose real name is Sunday Adeyemo, has embarked on a crusade to expel Fulani herdsmen and settlers from the South-West.
“Sunday Adeyemo’s mother’s house at Igboho was invaded by three Fulani men this evening around 7:54pm,” his spokesperson Olayomi Koiki tweeted on Sunday.
“Two of them escaped, one is currently held at Igboho police station.”
Former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode also echoed the report.
“Three terrorists were caught in Sunday Igboho’s mothers house and not two,” Fani-Kayode tweeted.
“One was caught and two escaped.
“I just spoke to Sunday Igboho and he told me that two foreign Fulani terrorists were apprehended in his mother’s home in Igboho, Oyo state this evening.
“Their mission was to harm Mama. One of them escaped whilst the other is with the police. Those that sent them are playing with fire.
“I am appealing to those who are behind these provocations against his person and reckless attacks to desist from this nonsense.
“Sunday is a heroic figure in the South-West and by far the most powerful, vocal and popular figure in Yorubaland today.
“Harming him or his family members will not augur well for the peace and stability of our nation.”
