The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has ordered the arrest of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly as Sunday Igboho for spearheading the riot in Oyo state.

It was reported that Sunday Igboho leads a group of citizens in Oyo state who are filing for the eviction of herdsmen in the state.

BBC Hausa reported that Garba Shehu confirmed the order on Friday, January 2, 2021.

Days after issuing the quit notice, Sunday Igboho and his supporters on Friday stormed the Fulani community in Igangan in the Ibarapa North Local Government Area to chase herders out of the town.

During the clash, a Yoruba youth and a Fulani woman were reportedly killed. Properties worth millions of naira were also set ablaze.

Meanwhile, Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde had appealed to the people fueling ethnic crisis in the state to desist from such acts.

The governor while receiving the new Commissioner of Police in the state, Mrs. Ngozi Onadeko on Friday reiterated his stand, saying his government would not allow anyone to foment crisis in the state under the pretense of ethnic interest.
