Farmers killings: Igboho gives herders seven days ultimatum to vacate Southwest
Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, has given suspected herders killing farmers in the Southwest a seven-day ultimatum to vacate the region.
The freedom fighter, however, assured that the region would not take laws into its own hands against the herders.
A statement by Igboho reads partly: “While we believe in peaceful coexistence in Nigeria regardless of tribe, religion and political cleavages, we are issuing a seven-day ultimatum to herdsmen killing our people in any part of South West to vacate our communities now.
“This warning is very important. We are not going to take laws into our hands, but they must leave.

“For now, we have belief in the capability of the federal government under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu to ensure and guarantee the safety of lives and properties, particularly for farmers in Nigeria.
“We must not tolerate any act that can further push up the prices of food and other edible commodities.
“We are also appealing to Oyo and Ogun State governors to as a matter of urgency, deploy more security agents and architectures to all the flashpoints where there is an increase in herdsmen/farmers clashes for peace to reign.
“Nigerians and our farmers in agrarian settlements need more security presence now so that they can engage in small or large-scale farming activities for massive food production. These killings must stop now for the benefit of all.”
