Fiery Yoruba Rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, on Monday visited Ogun State as part of his campaign to rid the South West region of Fulani terrorists.

Igboho, alongside his supporters, had a brief stopover in Abeokuta, where he vowed to make the entire South West uncomfortable for Fulani bandits and kidnappers suspected of attacking farmers and abducting people for ransom across the Southwest.

After his stopover in Abeokuta, he later headed to some trouble areas in Yewaland, Ogun West Senatorial District, where there are regular reports of attacks on farmers by herdsmen, who are also accused of routinely raping women.

Fedredsnews had earlier reported that the people of Yewaland, last week, alleged that some soldiers manhandled and flogged some farmers who resisted attempts by herdsmen to graze on their farmland. A traditional ruler in one of the communities was allegedly manhandled by the soldiers in the presence of the herders.

Meanwhile, officials of the Ogun State government said the government was aware of Igboho’s visit and welcomes it as part of efforts to restore peace to parts of the state where there is tension between farmers and herders.
