Igboho had last week visited Fulani settlement in Igangan, Ibarapa North Local Government Area where he gave them a seven-day ultimatum to leave the area.
He accused the Fulani community in the area of masterminding abductions, killings, and other criminal activities in the area.
Adeyemo who spoke in Yoruba dialect said fear of many Yoruba people are to ensure other tribe didn’t take over their land from them.
He said; “Fulanis cannot take over our land from us. We own our land and we won’t allow anybody to take it from us. Some people are intimidating us but we won’t succumb to their threat. For the Fulani living here, we are not fighting them, if they can live with us peacefully. Our fear is for them taking over our land, kidnapping and killing our people.
“We will evict them from our land if they insisted on kidnapping our people. I am assuring Yoruba people, especially the residents of Oyo state that there is no course for alarm. This one we started today, it is not only in Oyo state that we are going to evict Fulani people but in the entire Yoruba land.”
