Oyo Unrest: My Family Has Relocated To Ilorin – Seriki Fulani 

Saliu Abdulkadri, Seriki Fulani of Igangan, Oyo state, says his family members have moved out of the restive southwest state and are temporarily residing in Ilorin, the Kwara capital.

Abdulkadir and his family’s relocation from Igangan in Ibarapa local government area of the state last week was sequel to the destruction and attack that characterised the aftermath of the quit notice issued to them by Sunday Adeyemo, a youth leader better known as Sunday Igboho.

His houses and cars were razed by suspected thugs following the expiration of the eviction notice.

Igboho had asked the herdsmen to leave the area after accusing them of wanton criminalities and killing Yoruba people.

Speaking in Ilorin, Abdulkadir said he was on a short visit to Ilorin while his family had sought refuge in his property in Ilorin.

The Seriki, who said seven of his people were killed during the attack, disclosed that he would not hesitate to move back to Igangan if given the opportunity.

“I have not been called for any meeting as we speak. If we are asked to return to Igangan where are we going to live? My house and vehicles had been completely razed,” Abdulkadir said.

“But if given the opportunity to return to the community, I would consider moving back to Igangan.

“When we were sent out of Igangan, we moved to Ilorin in Kwara state. As we speak, I am in the north but my children are in Ilorin. I have a building in Ilorin.”
