Sunday Igboho, who is a prominent Human rights activist and a popular Yoruba freedom fighter has said in response to a plea from a besieged community in Oyo state that he will not come to their aid unless some terms are fulfilled. 

Residents of Kajola village in Ayete have recently been plagued by incessant attacks from armed Fulani men leading to the destruction of their properties and forcing them to flee their farms. image credits: thisdaylive.com

These group of herdsman are led by a man named Iskilu Wakil. The villagers had asked Wakil and his gang to vacate the village after they had seen how Igboho had given a quit notice to Seriki Fulani of Igangan, Saliu Abdukadir. This quit notice given by the villagers has led the herdsmen to start destroying their farms, attacking them and driving them away from their farms.

According to them, the police and Amotekun have refused to come to their aid so they have resorted to pleading for Sunday Igboho's help.

On Tuesday, In an interview with SaharaReporters, Sunday Igboho spoke through his media aide in response to their plea. He said that he would go to fight for them if the governor of their state Seyi Makinde approved of it.Gov. seyi makinde (image credits: Guardian.ng)

Recall that after he went to render help to a community in Ogun state, the government there said they didn't call for his help.

So in the interview, he asserted that he would only render help to Ayete the community if their government approved of it. 


He said, "I know the people of Ayete are calling for help but I will only go to Ayete if the governor asks me to go. After all, he is the chief security officer of the state and he is in the best position to give the order.


"The governor visited Igangan over the weekend and just left yesterday. Ayete is not far from Igangan, whatever affects the people in these communities should be of utmost priority to the governor of the state.


"If the governor gives me the go-ahead today, I will be in Ayete first thing tomorrow morning."
