Criminal Herdsmen: Ooni Sends Warning To Sunday Ighoho by Naijapeeps: 11:13pm On Jan 28
Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has advised Sunday Adeyemo, well known as Sunday Igboho, not to take laws into his hands but allow constituted authorities to handle the herdsmen menace.

The monarch also warned Sunday Igboho to watch out for politicians seeking to hijack his agitations against killer herdsmen in the region.

This is coming after the first class monarch met with President Muhammadu Buhari behind closed doors in the Villa on Tuesday.

The prominent Yoruba monarch visited Aso Rock, amid heated ethnic tension in Ondo and some parts in Oyo state, generated by the recent locals-Fulani herders’ confrontation.

Speaking with the press after the meeting, According to Ooni of Ife, the purpose of his visit is connected with the simmering ethnic tension in some parts of the South West region.

He said it’s part of the duties of traditional rulers that everything is right, all and sundry of the country are in good shape.

“The take-home here is that Mr. President has assured it’s not going to be a political thing. We all know the problem all over the country because we have a lot of bad eggs that have mixed across the entire country, and we are having that situation again in the South West.

“So I am here as the co-chairman of the national council of traditional rulers to get the assurance of Mr. President that either of the party won’t turn to a political party fun fair in order not to risk the lives of our people, not only in the south-west but the entire country.

“I am happy he has told me that I should assure other traditional rulers to work with them now so that we can separate the good, the bad, and the ugly,” he added.

However, in another interview with Arise TV, the traditional ruler praised Igboho for taking on the campaign against herdsmen but advised him to allow constituted authorities to handle the menace.

The Ooni said Igboho has done very well, but he should back down so that government can take over the battles to avoid politicians hijacking the movement.

The monarch said: “Let us be very objective. He (Igboho) is being a mouthpiece for the downtrodden. He came up and everybody is listening now but my advice to him as a traditional ruler is that he needs to be very careful so that the politicians won’t hijack the whole motive from him.

“He has done well and we’ve already praised him but he shouldn’t take laws into his hands. We have the governor there, he is the chief security officer of the state and Mr President has invited him (Makinde). Let the right people that are being authorised to do what is right do it.

“He (Igboho) has done well and the world has heard him but everything should be done in moderation.”

He added: “We know that the bandits are everywhere. He shouldn’t take laws into his hands. We have laws in this country, and we should follow it. Let the right people chosen either our leader, let them follow what they are supposed to do.

He has done well, and we should leave it like that,” he said.

Speaking on the role of traditional rulers and other Yoruba leaders such as Aare Ona Kakanfo;

“Well, we cannot compare then and now, in the holding day, Yoruba have a dynasty, we have structure and by virtue of that, that is the structure that gave birth to Aare Ona Kakanfo.

“But these days, you now want to take the job of a governor and say you are Aare Ona Kakanfo, no, what you need to do is more of advisory roles and advocacy because the structure in the holding days is not obtainable now. If you do it, you will land yourself in jail.”

That is why I said, the likes of Sunday Igboho, they have done well, let the government take over, they have created a good awareness for it, and we have taken it upon ourselves to compliment what they did, but the likes of Aare Ona Kakanfo, they need to work with the system that has a constitution” the monarch added.

Ooni also said, “Traditional rulers have a role to play. We should be very neutral and so far so good, we have been trying to be neutral. Whatever this government is doing, we always stand up to try and see how to support them.

“It is not as if we will now go out to criticise them. We are not politicians, we are traditional rulers; we should be respected, we should be neutral, and we should accommodate all and sundry.”

Life is a risk, it is even more dangerous to take the risk of life without Insurance.

What if it happens when you think it can never happen? What will now happen? Life is never promise you know.

Do you really know that you can insure your life and properties at a low amount you won't belief?

We can talk better on any form of insurance plan. I await you.

My anger in all these is not that they are speaking up to warn Igboho.
It is that they have been silent to warn Fulani herdsmen until Igboho sprang up.

Why?

I don't have any word than to say, I am over 100% disappointed in you.

Even an agboro at garage protect his members before passengers.

Are you a slave trader?

Do you have share in kidnappers ransome?

Do you use the victim kill by this fulanis for ritual?

Until you tell us reason you sold Yoruba's, you're not supposed to continue as a Yoruba's supreme leader



Ooni used that as bojuboju..

I don't know why you all are falling for uh4 grimicks

You except him to visit the president and in turn not say anything to the media

He might not be in support of igboho because of their towns clash but he's not also opposing him

Nah bojuboju things

All these our 'leaders' are just showing they value fulani lives over ours, and the fulani are reading their body language,
For the first time in 5 years, these people are shook, and what have we had? Governors climbing over each other to assure the fulani, king traveling to Abuja,
I have heard the name of Sunday Igboho from our 'leaders' than fulani herdsmen, that name is like poison to them,
Amotekun now works hand in hand with miyeti allah Vigilantes

With all due respect, I am really disappointed with the statement of OONI OF IFE, he should have know that he's the traditional custodian of his people.
By saying this, you have betrayed the confidence reposed on you.
Learn to feel the pained of your people and support them against the devilish people called Fulani Herdmen.

Sunday and his father once lived in Modakeke, Ife.

I am sure he has connection to Ooni. Ooni did not condemn him but we do not know if he told Buhari to forget his arrest order.

Arrest for wia?

Must you mention igbos to score a point? Igbos and Yorubas are not the same, the Yorubas have one voice yes, igbos have million voices cause the voice of every individual counts , igbos don't practice absolute monarchy

Illiterates has taken over Nairaland, they only read topic and conclude, some would even read but won't understand, some cannot read beyond lines. It's common among the impostors.

Beware Nigerians. This is the time to know and understand the true identity of those who cause tribalism on here, they are paid agents, they are neither from east or west, some are not Nigerian. They have more than twenty monikers, they would create tribal related topics and make tribal comments with different monikers to cause chaos between southerners. Though, they have no conscience but you can try to educate them or better ignore them. They are easy to identify, use your head brothers.
They dominate this platform. They are evil and restless until their aim is achieved.
