Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho) has called on security agencies in the country to step up actions against herders who are killing farmers, destroying their farmlands and raping their wives and daughters.
Igboho said killer herders must be stripped from igniting another tension in the land, particularly in southwest Nigeria.
The president of Myetti Allah (Kautal Hore) Abdullahi Bodejo had dismissed the quit notice recently issued to Fulani herders in southwest by Igboho, saying Nigerian citizens are allowed to reside and work anywhere they choose in the country.
But Igboho in a statement on Sunday said the nation’s constitution does not support mindless killings of farmers, vicious rape of their wives and destruction of farmlands, which were rampant during the Muhammadu Buhari administration, stressing that President Bola Tinubu will not tolerate such criminality.

Describing the Myetti Allah’s national president as a mere attention seeker, Igboho emphasized that though Nigeria’s constitution allows citizens to reside in any part of the country, it does not support herders under whatever guise to graze their cattle on the farmlands, kill farmers struggling to eke out a living and rape their wives and daughters.
The statement read: “It is imperative for the Miyetti Allah group to be conscious of the fact that the acts of lawlessness permeated by former President Muhammadu Buhari will not hold sway under the immediate incumbent President Bola Tinubu.
“It will do them a lot of good to perish the thought of unprovoked attacks on farmers, particularly in the South West, where we have lost many innocent farmers. Relevant security agencies and the people will not allow them to further compound the woes of the common man.
“We are again charging the heads of security agencies to redouble their efforts and strategies in ensuring that the sustenance of peace and tranquility in all parts of the country, including all the states in the southwest so that farmers and agrarian communities will not be subjected to terror and violent attacks by rogue Fulani herders and cattle rustlers.
“While we believe in the efficiency of the Police, the Department of State Security (DSS), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and other paramilitary agencies to ensure security of lives and properties, we want to charge our people to be vigilant and quickly report any act capable of breaching the peace in their respective communities and locations.
