I Tremble And Shiver At The Mention Of Igboho’s Name – Evicted Seriki Fulani Of Igangan

Following his eviction and the burning down of his house in Iganga, the evicted Seriki Fulani of Igangan, Abdulkadir Saliu has revealed that he now lives in fear at the mention of Yoruba activist, Sunday Igangan’s name. Sponsored by Google LLC Igboho had issued an eviction order to the Fulanis in Ibarapaland and some hours after his visit to area to ensure compliance, the house and cars of the Seriki Fulani, Saliu, were burnt.  For Saliu, Igboho seems to be the most terrible person in the world.  In an interview with BBC Yoruba, the Seriki Fulani claimed that Igboho and his team killed some Fulani men during their visit to Igangan, including Seriki’s only brother.  Saliu said he originated from Ilorin, Kwara State and had relocated with his father to Igangan in the Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State.  He said he had lived in Igangan since then and prospered in the land.  He said, “I got to Igangan in 1972. At the mention of Igboho’s name, I get scared and shiver.  “I am an indigene of Ilorin, my father and mother originated from Ilorin. I had come with my father to Ibarapa town. He was buried in Ibarapa.   “At the mention of Igboho’s name, I get scared and shiver, because what I experienced on the day he came with his group to my place at Igangan, since my childhood, I’d never seen such, so when I heard he was going to Ogun State, I couldn’t sleep.  “There’s no one that will hear the name of the most terrible person in the world and won’t be scared. You know what he did to me, to my property. My mother had only two children, me and my younger brother. Igboho killed my younger brother. Immediately Igboho arrived, we saw four corpses on the floor. Up till now, there are two corpses on the ground in Igangan that we can’t go to retrieve them. “Someone over there saw their corpses and called to inform us, but we can’t go to Igangan. The person who called us, we told him to help us get people to go and carry the corpses but he was scared so he fled. Apart from my brother, the police evacuated four other corpses. How will I not get scared when I hear this name? It was God that saved me that day, I could have died.” Responding to allegations of his involvement in fraudulent businesses, the Seriki Fulani said, “From my childhood, God has blessed me. I am into cattle rearing business. I have no other business. My educated kids work with banks for the smooth running of their business. I am into cattle business, and I have been in this business for a long time.” He also put the estimated cost of his property burnt in Igangan at N500 million or more.
