The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the arrest of Sunday Adeyemo more known as Sunday Igboho, for giving Fulani in Oyo State an ultimatum to leave the state, Njenje Media News reports.

BBC Hausa quoted Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu as confirming the arrest order during its programmed on Friday. Shehu reportedly said the IGP informed him of his directive to Ngozi Onadeko, the Oyo commissioner of police, to arrest Igboho and transfer him to Abuja.

It would be recalled that Igboho 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 Saliu Kadri, the Seriki 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.
