Governor Seyi Makinde’s warning against the expulsion of any ethnic group from Oyo State has fallen on deaf hears.
Yoruba activist Sunday Igboho just made good his threats to expel alleged Fulani kidnappers from Igangan in Ibarapa North local government area of the state.
Last Friday, Igboho and his supporters stormed the area and gave the Fulanis one week to leave.
The grassroots mobilizer issued the deadline when he confronted the Seriki Fulani, Saliu Kadri.
Igboho accused Kadri’s subjects and herdsman of killing Yorubas. He listed the assassination of Oyo businessman Fatai Aborode, Alhaja Serifat Adisa and her children, an Igangan prince, among others.
Igboho disclosed he acted on the request of traditional rulers who had protested that they were helpless about incessant killings and kidnappings.
The Oyo State Government condemned the quit notice, adding that it would deal with anyone who expelled any ethnic group.
But the governor’s warning seemed to have fallen on Igboho’s deaf ears.
