Why Sunday Igboho May Be Making A Mistake In Fighting Fulani Herdsmen

In oyo state at the moment, there is currently an uproar over the ultimatum a Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Ighoho issued to Fulani herdsmen in Oyo state.

Last week, He ordered that they should vacate Oyo state and its environs within several days or else he will evict them forcefully. The seven days got complete today and as he said, it has been a serious rancor in between them.

In as much as Sunday Igboho is fighting for the safety of Yoruba nation, there is need to also understand that whenever any fight is being embarked on, there is need to diplomatic in order to avoid a more serious issue.

In my opinion, I feel Sunday Igboho has not been diplomatic enough in this fight. First of all, Sunday Igboho is an ordinary citizen just like everyone, and in  that capacity, he has no right whatsoever to ask a group of people to leave a particular place.

In a state, the person who has the right to evict an individual is the governor of the state because he is the chief security officer of the state. It’s also interesting to note that the governor of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde has openly disassociated himself from the ultimatum given to the herdsmen.

When we come to Yoruba land, those who also have that Power are the Kings, there has never been a time when the Kings asked that Fulani herdsmen should leave their state. Also, apart from the king, we have the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land, Gani Adams who is not also supporting this move, therefore, why has Sunday Igboho taken this upon himself?

With this forceful eviction, there could be a civil war among Nigerians because the Hausas will want to retaliate by forcefully evicting Yorubas in their lands, can Sunday Igboho fight this war alone?

Time will tell
