Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo,  popularly known as Sunday Igboho, says he is back in the country to chase killer herdsmen out of  Yorubaland.

Adeyemo who  said this in a video that went viral on Tuesday, said the Federal Government and soldiers deployed to Yorubaland cannot combat the menace of the herdsmen on their own.

To a cheering crowd as seen in the video, Igboho  said, “I want you all to stand with me so that we can liberate ourselves from the herders encroaching on our lands. Let us mount security in all the Yoruba lands ourselves, if not, they will take our lands.

“We don’t have to wait for the government or anyone. Let’s just work in unison. We cannot farm on our lands because of these herders. And our people are going hungry and angry. We don’t need the soldiers the government claims to have deployed to Ekiti State. We work in accordance with our elders and mount the places ourselves.

“It was my mother that was my fear before but now she’s gone, I have nothing to be scared of again. I am now back to take back our land.

“I am not working for any politician. In fact, if I incidentally slapped someone, the government would be ready to arrest me and put me behind bars. I know they are watching me closely now to know my next action but I’m ready to take a step to stop these marauders’ activities in our lands”.
