Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the attack on Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho’s house in Ibadan.
Sunday Igboho’s house was set ablaze ablaze in the early hours of Tuesday, in Soka, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
In his reaction, Fani-Kayode described the incident as cowardice.
He cautioned those behind the incident to stop and avoid bloodshed before it’s too late.
On his Twitter page, Fani-Kayode wrote: “Burning Igboho’s house at 3.00a.m. in the morning only proves that you are nothing but cowards and that you are running scared. I pray you do not get what you are looking for.
“War, conflict, bloodshed and carnage are best avoided. Let your madness stop here before it is too late.”
Igboho, who is the Akoni Oodua of Yoruba land, had asked herdsmen in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to leave within seven days.
At the expiration of the ultimatum last week, he and his followers had stormed the Fulani settlement in Igangan to eject Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir, and herdsmen accused of perpetrating crimes ranging from kidnappings, killings, rape to invasion of farmlands with their cattle.
Some houses and property in the settlement of the Fulanis were torched but Igboho had distanced himself from the incident, saying aggrieved youths and residents of the town were responsible for the destruction.
This may be seen as a reprisal attack although Igboho denied being involved in the attack on Fulanis in Igangan.
