The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the arrest of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, over an eviction order he issued to herdsmen in Oyo State.
The order was confirmed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu during an interview with BBC Hausa.
Shehu said the IGP informed him that he had ordered the Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Ngozi Onadeko, to arrest Igboho immediately and transfer him to Abuja.
Igboho had recently issued a seven day ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen in Igangan, Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State.
He attributed the incessant killings and banditry in the area to them.
He and his supporters were reported to have stormed the Fulani settlement in the town to eject the Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir, and some other herdsmen accused of fuelling security problems in the area.
