The call is in response to a recent viral video where Igboho was seen making inflammatory statements, demanding the expulsion of all Fulani cattle breeders from Yoruba land.

In the video, Igboho, known for his fiery rhetoric, vehemently asserts his intention to drive out Fulani herders from the South West, citing grievances and escalating tensions between ethnic groups in the region.

In a press release signed by the MACBAN national president, Baba Othman Ngelzarma, it was noted that Igboho’s bold proclamation sent shockwaves through the community, prompting swift reactions from various quarter

“We call on the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR) and relevant security agencies to arrest and prosecute Sunday Igboho for making this unlawful statement that amounts to treason because he is asking for the actualisation of Oduduwa nation.

“His statements are unlawful. If Nnamdi Kanu will be held behind bars for a similar offence, we see no reason why Sunday Igboho will be allowed to go scot-free without being arrested and prosecuted.

The MACBAN emphasised the need for law and order, denouncing any form of vigilantism or ethnic profiling, stressing that individuals should be held accountable for their actions, regardless of their ethnic or religious background.
