Fulani Herdsmen: No Human Can Kill Me — Sunday Igboho Boasts
Sunday Igboho has boasted that no human can kill him.
NewsOne Nigeria reports that popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, well known as Sunday Igboho, has been making headlines since he issued a seven-day quit notice to herdsmen accused of sundry crimes in the Ibarapa area of Oyo State and enforced same.
Sunday Igboho in an interview with PUNCH newspaper, said he remains undeterred in his quest to liberate the South-West from killer herdsmen despite concerns over his safety by family members.
The activist in recent weeks, has been in the news for asking herders, allegedly responsible for farmers-herders’ crisis, to leave some communities in Oyo and Ogun states. After his visit to Igangan in the Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State, the house of the Seriki Fulani in the area was razed by angry youths.
One of Igboho’s houses in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, was gutted by fire by unknown persons in what seems like a reprisal.
Sunday Igboho in an interview with PUNCH on Sunday, said no human being can kill him and he will not be distracted.
The Yoruba warlord was quoted as saying, “I am not afraid of anything or anyone but God. God is the owner and controller of every soul. It is only God who can kill me. No human being can kill me, so I cannot be afraid of any mortal.
“My children challenge and persuade me to quit every day. They wave the caution sign to me every time. My wife is also very worried about the cause that I fight for but I have to do this for the liberation of my people, anyway. But I am equally worried about my people who are being dehumanised and oppressed in their own territory for no just reason. Those who should address the issue just fold their arms and watch because they have been compromised. This struggle is for the good of all so that when I am gone, they will not live in subjection.”
