A Fulani association known as Gan Allah Fulani Development Association of Nigeria (GADFAN), has called for the arrest of Sunday Igboho, following the incident which took place at the house of Seriki Fulani in Igangan community.
GADFAN made the above call in a statement, after it’s officials paid a solidarity visit to Seriki Igangan, Alhaji Salihu in Ilorin, Kwara State.You may recall that Chief Sunday Adeyemo (popularly known as Sunday Igboho) and the Seriki Fulani in Igangan, Alhaji Salihu AbdulKadir had an encounter after Sunday Igboho's ultimatum to Fulani people in Igangan community. It was later reported that properties belonging to the Seriki Fulani were attacked and destroyed.
According to GADFAN, the attack on Seriki Fulani in Igangan led to the burning and total destruction of the Seriki’s properties worth over N500 million.
GADFAN called for Sunday Igboho’s arrest by saying, “The GADFAN, therefore, calls on the federal and Oyo State governments to ensure that justice is done to Salihu AbdulKadir and his people by way of not only ensuring that Igboho and his boys are apprehended and brought to book, but that Sarkin Fulani and his people be compensated and returned to their homes."
According it’s statement GADFAN further said, “To our greatest surprise and dismay, up to this moment Sunday Igboho is moving freely as if nothing happened.“
The association however claims that it is already consulting it's lawyers while expressing intention to take necessary legal steps if nothing is done by the relevant authorities to address the issue.
