On Tuesday, Sunday Igboho’s house was set ablaze around 3:30am by unknown hoodlums and properties worth N50 million has been reportedly lost to the incidence.
However, Chief Sunday Igboho has reacted to this hoodlums attack and said the arsonists broke the gate to the building to gain entrance before setting the house on fire.
His full statement reads;
“Around 03:30 am this morning, my siblings living in my old house came to alert me that some hoodlums were at the house, shooting sporadically, and that they had forced the gate open and set the house ablaze,” he said.
“My siblings escaped unhurt but my house was burnt. When we got there, the hoodlums had escaped so we called the fire service to put out the fire.
“I am surprised that some Yoruba people could be supporting killer herdsmen to destroy my house. This saddens me.
“My agitations are for all of us to come together against killer herdsmen who have been terrorizing the Yorubas by kidnapping, killing our brothers, and raping our women in Yoruba Land.
“To my amazement, some Yoruba people are aiding these killer herdsmen.
I expected them to come and attack my residence where I live now to show that they mean business.

“I assure you if they had, I would have been able to give you evidence of the hoodlums that did this.
“The property destroyed in that inferno would not be less than fifty million.”
“I have noticed that the agitations that I am championing over the killer Fulani herdsmen is being politicised to malign and weaken me.”
“Those politicians are lying. All the claims of that man called Babafemi Ojudu are all lies. I have nothing to do with him. I do not know him.
“Until those killer herdsmen leave our father’s land, I will not rest. There is no politician funding me for these agitations.
“Since the killer herdsmen have been killing and kidnapping our people in Ibarapa, no one or government visited the place until I went to expose the havoc being wreaked on our people. No one or group came to their rescue in Ibarapa until I went there.
“I have to go because they are my family, I have the same tribal marks with Mr Aborode who was killed by these killer herdsmen.
“I challenge any politician who claims to fund me to come out openly and say so.
“What I want is for peace to reign in Yoruba land.”
