303

Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho has said that some Yorubas were part of hoodlums who invaded and burnt his home in the early hours of Tuesday.

He however said he didn’t have the full details of those who orchestrated the arson.

“What I find surprising is that some Yorubas are in support of the herdsmen to set my house on fire. I’m saddened by it,” he said.

On the suspected arsonists, he said: “For now, I do not suspect anyone.

“When they knew they could fight, fire gunshots, and set a house ablaze, isn’t it where I stay that they are supposed to come? If they had come to the house where I stay, I would have had evidence for you people (journalists) because they won’t all escape.

“It’s either you meet their dead bodies or meet them with broken legs. I thank God that they applied wisdom by going to a house where they know that I don’t live and destroyed my properties and burnt it down.”

Igboho further revealed the value of damaged items in the residence could not be less than N50m.

On how he knew about the attack on his old house, Igboho, who spoke with reporters said the arsonists fired gunshots before breaking in.

He said: “Around 3.30am today, my younger ones residing at my old house rushed to my gate to wake me up, saying some bandits came to the house, fired gunshots, broke the gate and set the house ablaze. The two people at the house managed to escape. By the time I got there, the bandits had escaped. So, we called firefighters to help us put out the fire.”

On why he’s against the criminal herdsmen, Igboho said their atrocities in Yorubaland are preventing peace from reigning.

“These Fulanis are killing our brothers in our fatherland. They’re killing, raping, and kidnapping. All the things they are doing to us are not good. That’s why I’m trying to unite our people so that we can chase them away for peace to reign in Yorubaland,” he said
