Igboho: Oro Worshippers Impose 7-day Curfew; Women, Visitors To Remain Indoors by kuytagrey(m): 2:11am On Jan 24
AFTER the forceful exit of Fulani herders from Igangan in Ibarapa North local government area of Oyo state by youths in the town, a mandatory curfew has been imposed by Oro worshippers.
The curfew, Vanguard gathered, will expire by 12 noon on Sunday.


Igangan Development Advocates (IDA), Mr Oladokun Oladiran, leader of the association, dismissed the claims that the festival was to ward off any reprisal attacks by the herders.

He explained that the Oro festival which usually lasts seven days began about six days ago. During the festival, restriction of movement is enforced especially for women and non-indigenes of the town.

He said, “Things are quiet in Igangan as Oro festival curfew is now ongoing. It’s been on for some days now. Today (Saturday) is ‘Ahamo’, meaning stay indoors.

“All must be indoor. It has been on since the last seven days but today (Saturday) is the peak. All women will be indoors until around 12 noon tomorrow (Sunday).”

He said for the first time, residents of the town could now breathe a sigh of relief.He noted that hundreds of people in Ibarapa would be eternally grateful to Sunday Igboho for coming to their rescue.

He said, “Year in the year, year out, several years under the continuous woes of Fulani banditry, Igangan’s hope of regaining their peace kept being dimmed until Friday, January 21, 2021, when the whole of Ibarapa land suddenly went agog with renewed strength of reclaiming their land.” “The long-awaited sought and longed for a ray of hope for liberation glimmered in the form of Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho. Such a massive uproar might never have attended any saga in recent Ibarapa history.”

“It was not surprising, for not a single household in Ibarapa North-West LCDA could boast of unscathed life in the hand of the ever-terrorizing herders.

“For several years, farm plundering was their full-time business which grew audaciously in leaps and bounds even as the Seriki Saliu ensured that no Fulani was prosecuted even for offences they were caught pants down perpetrating. With no disciplinary measures ever meted out to the now reverential Fulani herdsmen, their audacity has leapt in bounds from just grazing upon the sweats of Ibarapa farmers to maiming and lynching any farmer who dares raise a voice in deference to their destructive resolve.

“And as if it would never end, the era of heart-numbing fear that trickled into the very marrow of Igangan started years ago. Notorious Fulanis criminals increased spates of kidnappings and bloodshed upon the whole of Ibarapaland.” “Coming on the heels of his ascension to a greater throne, Seriki Abdulkadri Saliu who was alleged to have deployed a regimen of some vicious Fulani to depose even a rival Seriki to further solidify his entrenchment and perpetuation in power.

“Having secured this supreme power, the beastly tendencies unleashed upon Ibarapaland took an alarming and heightened dimension as he kept harbouring and shielding all Fulani criminals.

“Men were butchered on their farms, farmers abandoned their indigenous lands as hordes of Fulani took over Ibarapa people’s farmlands.

“This ushered in an era of Fulani clans migrating into the vast fertile and lush lands of the indigenous people of Igangan and Ibarapa. They settled majestically on hijacked lands and even cultivated the lands with landownership authority.”

“It would needlessly infuriate Fulani herdsmen to see the indigenous people of Ibarapa still daring to cultivate their indigenous land. They often feel slighted and insulted by the insistence of the landowners on wanting to farm for their livelihood. “So, in at least a week, a gory butchering of unsuspecting farmers perceived to by Fulani herders as a never-giving up impediment assumed an unchallenged normalcy.”

“Gradually, the people started losing counts of death tolls. Young and old kept being butchered; while the various sordid images of mutilated and dissected bodies form a nightmarish torment upon the people’s memories,” he concluded.

That is their own tradition and we must respect that, and also Our president Muhammadu buhari should start seeing himself as a Nigeria president and not a Fulani president.

Worst part is,most politicians/political figures are just sitting on the fence.
They are not ready to jeopardize their 2023 agendas , trying to please the 'Kingmakers' even at the detriment and ruin of their tribesmen.

Wike gave #500million to sympathize with Sokoto state recently.
What single good has the North ever done for Rivers State?

Oyinbo massacre didn't mean anything because the westerners felt safe and unconcerned !
Now,it's happening Live and direct!


Take the laws to your hands and defend yourselves or wait to die in the hands of our Cow brethrens!
It's just sickening and frustrating tbh!

Ha! So nothing was done to curtail these issue before the emergence of Sunday? Then what's the work of Amotekun?

You and your fellow yorubas voted buhari despite what happened under lam adeshina. If it was an lgbo man who went to confront lam adeshina, would you vote him.

You were expecting buhari die and a repeat of the yaradua Jonathan saga but this time with yorubas as the beneficiary but God said no

Buhari hand must touch everyone

The fact that they were hiding all these atrocities tells you the extent yorubas will go because of buhari and 2023. Something they will not accept from even a fellow yoruba man

Yorubas by default do not like trouble...They prefer peace and like to do their " faaji" and celebrate life.

If trouble says hello to them they will make noise so that trouble can get the cue and stay away, but if trouble comes looking for them, they will welcome trouble and give it such a nice time that next time it will think twice before looking for them.

That is why people falsely assume that they are cowards until everything set then you will know that they are not nice...especially over land matter.

That's being short sighted. If you can't fight it now when their own kinsman is on seat, then you can't fight it when they are not seat without it being politicise.

Don't they all remember what happened to Jonathan when Boko-Haram start killing people under his watch? It was used to demonised him. Now that their kinsmen is on seat, no one is talking.

Please and please, the Yorubas in APC shouldn't play politics with our lives.

We remembered how we used to live as brothers as sisters in our darling nation with these same Fulani herdsmen.
The times we gave water and food to herdsmen journeying across the nation as they go on their business peacefully,
Just with their sticks for their cattles and kettles for their prayers.
May it never be well with troublemakers in our darling nation.
May it never be well with all evil herdsmen and all their sponsors.



Below is how the short fused bastard started fuelling what is happening now since last year.
All they want is chaos in our darling nation,
All because they lost an election and the key to the National Treasury was taken from them.
Una no go ever die better...swines

The curfew is to checkmate the planned invasion by security agencies on the town. The people can see clearly who is attacking them when no one is on the road.
I will ask able bodied youths to also vacate the town temporarily to other places so that what happened in Obigbo will not befall them wherein Fulani soldiers entered homes, dragged them out and shot many of them.
