Nigeria’s Yoruba Warlord, Sunday Igboho’s Ibadan Mansion Razed + PHOTOs

Multi-million Naira mansion belonging to a warLord in Southwest Nigeria, Sunday Igboho, has been reportedly razed by yet to be identified men.

The midnight fire, which on Tuesday gutted some parts of the house of a popular Yoruba rights activist, was reportedly noticed to have started around 3am in the building located in the Soka area of Oyo State.

Other reports have it that the source of the fire was yet unknown but it was gathered that fire fighters from the Oyo State Fire Service arrived the scene a few hours after to douse the fire.

No statement has been obtained from Igboho on the incident.

Igboho, who is the Akoni Oodua of Yoruba land, had asked herdsmen in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to leave within seven days.


At the expiration of the ultimatum last week, he and his followers had stormed the Fulani settlement in the ancient town to eject Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir, and herdsmen accused of perpetrating crimes ranging from kidnappings, killings, rape to invasion of farmlands with their cattle.

Some houses and property in the settlement of the Fulanis were torched but Igboho had said aggrieved youths and residents of the town set the property on fire.
