A midnight fire gutted parts of a house in Ibadan belonging to Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho in the wee hours of Tuesday.
The fire according to sources started at about 3.00 a.m.
As at press time, the source of the fire was unknown. Fire fighters were said to have arrived a few hours after the fire started.
Igboho, the Akoni Oodua of Yoruba land, had recently been at the centre of national attention after he issued a seven day ultimatum to herdsmen in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State
He had following the expiration of the ultimatum last Friday marched to the Fulani settlement in Igangan to eject Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir, and the herdsmen he had accused of perpetrating crimes ranging from kidnappings, killings, rape to invasion of farmlands with their cattle.
He didn’t meet the Seriki but following his exit, he claimed that the house of the Seriki was set ablaze.
