The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Muhammad Adamu, has ordered the arrest of Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, over the quit notice he issued to herdsmen.
The IGP issued a directive to the Oyo commissioner of police, Ngozi Onadeko, to arrest Sunday Igboho and transfer him to Abuja.
Igboho, an Oodua republic agitator in Oyo State had asked herdsmen in Igangan in Ibarapa north local government area of Oyo to leave within seven days following reports of the killing of some Oyo citizens.
He had blamed herders and Fulanis, including Alh. Saliu abdulKadir, the Sarkin Fulani, of being behind the rising insecurity in the area.
The quit notice generated tension in parts of the state, prompting Seyi Makinde, the governor, to ask the IGP to arrest those fomenting trouble under the guise of protecting the interest of Yoruba people.
