Today's Headlines: Sunday Igboho Allegedly Attacks Fulani Herdsmen, Lai Mohammed Speaks & More.

Herdsmen Flee As Sunday Igboho Burn Down Fulani Community.

The Ogun state chapter of Miyyeti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has accused popular activist, Sunday “Igboho” Adeyemo of burning down another Fulani Community in Igua area of Yewa North in the state.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, State chairman of MACBAN, Alhaji Abubakar Ibrahim Dende, said Igboho led some of the youths in the area to set ablaze the house of the Sarkin Fulani of Igua, Alhaji Adamu Oloru.

Dende added that a Fulani Herdsman identified as Jiji Danmawale was killed in the inferno caused by Igboho.

Gunmen Attacks Again.

Gunmen suspected to be bandits have attacked a former member of the Sokoto State House of Assembly, Abdulwahab Yahaya Goronyo, and abducted his wife.

SaharaReporters gathered that the former lawmaker was attacked at his residence in the Goronyo Local Government Area on Monday.

Sokoto is one of the most terrorised North-West states in Nigeria. Its residents have been severely troubled by bandits and kidnappers.

The state government in 2019 entered a peace agreement with gunmen.

But despite the accord, communities in the state are still being attacked and residents kidnapped and/or killed.

Lai Mohammed Breaks Silence.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has called on the media and Nigerians to support the new service chiefs in the fight against insurgency.

President Muhammadu Buhari appointed new service chiefs on Jan. 27.

Mohammed who made the call on a Radio Nigeria programme, “Politics Nationwide’’ on Tuesday in Abuja, advised the media to be more responsible in reporting insurgency.

He said the new service chiefs would excel because of their track records, especially the CDS and CAS who were past Commanders of Operation Laiya Dole in the Northeast.
