KanyiDaily recalls that Igboho had issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulanis in Igangan to leave the area over alleged kidnapping and banditry.

Igboho had blamed herders and Fulanis, including Saliu Kadri, the Seriki Fulani in Oyo, of being behind the rising insecurity in the area.

According to BBC Hausa, a presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, confirmed on Friday that IGP Adamu has ordered the arrest of Igboho.

Shehu reportedly said the IGP informed him of his directive to Ngozi Onadeko, the Oyo commissioner of police, to arrest Igboho and transfer him to 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.

“Igboho is among topics that have generated public discuss 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.

“Mallam Garba Shehu said government was having a hard time punishing (such) offenders because of the activities of human rights organisations.

“Garba Shehu said the order given by the Inspector General of Police, for now, is that Igboho should be arrested and brought to Abuja to be taken to court to face prosecution,” the report partly reads.

KanyiDaily recalls that Governor of Oyo, Seyi Makinde, had also asked the Police CP, Ngozi Onadeko, to arrest and treat those igniting ethnic tension in the state as criminals.

Reacting to Makinde’s threat on Friday, Sunday Igboho insisted that Fulani people will leave the state and the entire Yorubaland if kidnapping continues.
