Popularly Yoruba rights activist , Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho , has described as embarrassing attempts to make him the head of South -West Security Network better known as Operation Amotekun .
He said this on Tuesday in an Instagram Live Chat with a popular journalist , Dele Momodu .
Igboho had asked herdsmen in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to leave within seven days , blaming the leadership of the Fulani for being behind the rising insecurity in the state .
At the expiration of his ultimatum , Igboho and his supporters reportedly stormed the Fulani settlement to eject those he described as “ killer herdsmen” .
Later, there were reports that Igboho had been asked to become the head of the South -West security outfit .
But the activist rejected the offer , saying that he was only interested in driving killer Fulani out of Yorubaland .
He warned against the politicisation of his fight against kidnapping and killings by suspected Fulani in South -West .
When asked if he would accept the offer to become Amotekun ’ s head , Igboho said, “ I won ’t be tired until I achieve my goal of sending criminal Fulani out of Yorubaland .
“ I am not interested in becoming the head of Amotekun . I am not doing . I am not a hunter or a security expert . What kind of embarrassment is that ( the offer )?
“ Nobody should try to induce me with any position . That is not what I want . I am asking them ( governors) to send all killer herdsmen out of our land . That is what I want. ”
Igboho also denied having any rift with the Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland , Gani Adams , saying , “ He ( Adams ) is aware of our steps . We are updating him. You can see that he spoke in our support of our struggle . He has vowed to resist any attack against us. ”
