Saliu Abdulkadri, Seriki Fulani of Igangan, Oyo state, says he is on a short visit to the north while his family members have settled temporarily in Ilorin, the Kwara capital.

Abdulkadir and his family left Igangan in Ibarapa local government area (LGA) of Oyo state last week, after his house and cars were torched by suspected thugs following an eviction notice issued by Sunday Adeyemo, a youth leader better known as Sunday Igboho.

Igboho had asked the herdsmen to vacate the area after accusing them of kidnapping and killing Yoruba people.

Speaking in Ilorin on Thursday, Abdulkadir said he has a house in Ilorin where his family has now moved to.

The Seriki, who said seven of his people were killed during the attack, added that he is open to moving back to Igangan if given the opportunity.
