Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, is a Yoruba nation activist who has taken aim at Abdullahi Bello Bodejo, the National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, for ignoring his recent resignation letter to Fulani herdsmen asking them to leave the Southwest.
In an interview with The Sun, the head of Miyetti Allah asserted that there were individuals attempting to inflame the situation by using Igboho, and he urged President Bola Tinubu to utilise security services to bring Igboho to order.
Bodejo said that each and every Nigerian citizen is entitled to live wherever in the nation and to pursue their lawful goals.

In response, Igboho countered Bodejo in a statement to journalists on Sunday, stating that President Tinubu would not put up with the senseless killings of farmers, the vicious rape of their wives, and the destruction of farmlands, all of which were common during President Muhammadu Buhari’s previous administration.
Igboho acknowledged that while Nigeria’s Constitution permits its residents to live anywhere in the nation, it opposes the practise of herders using any excuse to kill struggling farmers, rape their wives and daughters, and graze their cattle on farmlands.
Igboho called on the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), the Police, the Department of State Security (DSS), and other paramilitary organisations to guarantee the safety of people and property, Igboho urged farmers to be vigilant and report any act capable of breaching the peace in their respective communities and locations.

The statement reads, “Some alleged killer Fulani herders must be stopped from re-igniting tension and atmosphere of insecurity in any part of Nigeria, most especially in the agrarian communities and settlements in Yorubaland by the security agencies.
“It is glaring that Bodejo is merely seeking undue recognition through his unjustifiable position on the carnage by his fellow Fulani herders, which had caused untold hardship for small and large scale farmers, even in the North and more prominently in the South, where they often move their cattle to graze farms and destroy cash crops.
“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 compound the woes of the common man further.

“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 South West 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.”
