Popular activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also fondly known as Sunday Igboho, has estimated the damage and loss suffered in the early Tuesday morning fire at his residence at Soka, Ibadan, at N50million.
Specifically, he disclosed this in a chat with journalists shortly after the fire incident.
The fire, suspected to have been caused by arsonists, razed the house to the ground; with Sunday Igboho describing the perpetrators as cowards. Further, he revealed that the house attacked by the suspected hoodlums was hi old residence; even as he stated that the perpetrators did not have the guts to attack where he lives.
“When the fire started, they called me and by the time I got there, the arsonist had fled. They are cowards. Why can’t they come to where I live? You would have seen evidence because they won’t escape,” he said.
On the speculation that he has been tipped to be the Commander of Western Nigeria Security Network (WNSN); codenamed Amotekun, Sunday Igboho stated that he was not interested in such.
“I don’t seek such relevance. What I am saying is that the Fulanis herders that are terrorizing my people should leave the area. We want peace and that is all. I don’t need any political appointment or money from anybody. We only want peace in our area,” he said.
Some residents who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the suspected hoodlums came in a Toyota bus and Micra car around 3am on Tuesday. They revealed that the suspected hoodlums shot sporadically into the air to scare away residents before setting the house on fire.
Sunday Igboho has been in the news for giving an eviction notice to Fulani herdsmen in Igangan; a vicinity in Ibarapa North LGA of Oyo State. The notice followed allegations of killings, rapes and kidnappings levelled against the Fulani herdsmen in the community.
