“First of all they burnt down Sunday’s house in Ibadan. Secondly a soldier and a fake soldier were caught spying on his Ibadan home. Thirdly two terrorists are caught sneaking into his mothers home with a clear intention to harm her.
“This is a man whose input brought peace to our nation just two weeks ago and helped to bring to an end the Northern embargo of food to the South after he guaranteed the peace and security of innocent Nigerian Fulanis in the SW.
“I am appealing to those who are behind these provocations against his person & reckless attacks to desist from this nonsense. Sunday is a heroic figure in the South West and by far the most powerful, vocal and popular figure in Yorubaland today. Harming him or his family members will not augur well for the peace and stability of our nation.
“N.B. Three terrorists were caught in Sunday Igbho’s mothers house and not two. One was caught and two escaped,” Fani-Kayode wrote.
This is coming 2 days after four men including two men who dressed in military camouflage were caught allegedly spying on Igboho’s residence in Ibadan.
