The Akoni of Yorubaland, Sunday ‘Igboho’ Adeyemi says some Yorubas were part of those who set his house in Ibadan on fire.
Naija Studio had reported that the house located in the Soka area in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, got burnt in the early hours of Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters in Ibadan on Tuesday, Igboho said he was not going to blame anyone until an investigation has been concluded.
The Yoruba activist said he would allow authorities to conduct and conclude their investigation into the incident before coming out with his next move.
He also disclosed the value of damaged items in the residence could not be less than N50m.
He said: “I cannot blame anyone right now for the attack, not even Fulani people.
“We have to thank God that nobody was killed, it is more important,” he said.
“What I find surprising is that some Yorubas are in support of the herdsmen to set my house on fire. I’m saddened by it.”
He added: “When they knew they could fight, fire gunshots, and set a house ablaze, isn’t it where I stay that they are supposed to come? If they had come to the house where I stay, I would have had evidence for you people (journalists) because they won’t all escape.
“It’s either you meet their dead bodies or meet them with broken legs. I thank God that they applied wisdom by going to a house where they know that I don’t live and destroyed my properties and burnt it down.”
