At the time of filing this report, no statement has been obtained from Sunday Igboho on the incident.

The fire incident happened barely few days after Igboho asked herdsmen in the Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to leave within seven days.

At the expiration of the ultimatum last week, Sunday Igboho and his supporters stormed the Fulani settlement in the ancient town to eject the Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir.

They also chased out herdsmen accused of perpetrating crimes ranging from kidnappings, killings, rape to invasion of farmlands with their cattle.

Some houses and property in the settlement of the Fulanis were set ablaze but Igboho denied responsibility, saying residents of the town were responsible for the destruction.
