Fulani group demands Igboho’s arrest, compensation for displaced leader

The Gan Allah Fulani Development Association of Nigeria has called on the federal and Oyo state governments to ensure the return of the displaced Sarikin Fulani Igangan, Alhaji Salihu AbdulKadir, to Igangan in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of the state.

The Abuja-based GADFAN equally asked the governments to compensate the Sarkin Fulani for all the loss he and his people suffered during the alleged attack on their settlement by the acclaimed Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho.

It also demanded the prosecution of Sunday Igboho and others involved in the unleashing of violence on Sarkin Igangan as well as the destruction of his property.The association made these demands in a statement after its officials paid a solidarity visit to Alhaji Salihu in Ilorin, Kwara State.

The statement was signed by the National Chairman and National Secretary of GADFAN, Alhaji Sulaiman Yakubu and Ibrahim Abdullahi respectively.

The statement read, “To our greatest surprise and dismay, up till this moment, Sunday Igboho is moving freely as if nothing has happened.

“The GADFAN, therefore, calls on the federal and Oyo state governments to ensure that justice is done to Alhaji Salihu AbdulKadir and his people by way of not only ensuring that Igboho and his boys are apprehended and brought to book, but that Sarkin Fulani and his people be compensated and returned to their homes.

“The attack led to the burning and total destruction of all his (Sarkin Fulani Igangan) houses, household items and his animals that include cows, sheep, goats, turkeys, a school, shops and a mosque; all worth over N500m.”

It vowed to explore all peaceful and legal means to ensure that justice was done to all parties, adding that, “We are already in consultation with our lawyers and we will soon take all the necessary legal steps if nothing is done by the relevant authorities to address the issue.”
