Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho reveals why he labeled Bola Tinubu, Seyi Makinde as Fulani slaves
Recall that WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that Igboho issued a seven-day quit notice to herdsmen in the Ibarapa area of Oyo as a result of incessant kidnapping and killings which he enforced and later extended same to Yewa North Local Government in Ogun state.
In a bid to find lasting solution to the herdsmen crisis, Oyo state governor, Makinde met with the President in Aso Villa last week but the opposition governor was accused of not doing enough to fight killer herdsmen in some parts of the state.
Recall that a leader of the Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, had also stated that Tinubu is afraid to speak on the Fulani herdsmen crisis in the South-West region because he does not want to offend the President.
According to Adebanjo, Tinubu has not condemned the attacks by Fulani herdsmen on the Yoruba people because of his presidential ambition in 2023.
Igboho while speaking on early Wednesday in a virtual meeting said politicians were afraid of speaking up because they don’t want to endanger their political career.
“A lot of these people we call fathers are cowards and they are Fulani slaves. Once they get to Abuja, they will change everything. And at this stage, we must not be afraid of anybody. Any leader who does not cooperate should be dealt with.
“Yoruba people need not fear Fulani herdsmen anymore. The leaders should show themselves as up to the task. We should deliver ourselves from the enslavement of the Fulani people. Tinubu and his people are Fulani slaves, they don’t have anything good to offer. All the politicians don’t have anything to offer Yoruba people. They are all Fulani slaves, they can’t talk. It is better we cooperate and fight this menace once and for all. We must ‘soro soke’ once and for all,” the activist submitted in the teleconference monitored by our correspondent.
“Seyi Makinde on his own has turned to something else in Oyo State. And we elected him into office but he is a total mistake. He is running after second term and he can’t hear the cries of his people,” Igboho added.
