Oyo state Chairman of Miyetti Allah, Alhaji Ibrahim Jiji who disclosed this while speaking with journalists in Ibadan the state capital on Saturday said assaulted Seriki Fulani must get justice.
The Fulani leader said many of his members in the state are now leaving in fear while many of them had fled their homes for safety.
He urged Yoruba and Fulani residents to allow peace to reign in Oyo state, saying; “we are all Nigerians. We must learn how to leave in peace.”
Jiji noted since government is supreme to individuals, the state and federal government should come to their rescues and assure residents of their safety.
He said; “we are all Nigerians. We appreciate and love the governor of Oyo state, Engr. Seyi Makinde for saying the truth. We need to join hand together to ensure we have a peaceful society. Our people are not happy and many of them are living in fear. Some had fled their abode.
“We want justice for Seriki Fulani. All those perpetrated the evil must face the wrath of law. They are not powerful than the government. Who is Sunday Igboho and why is he more powerful than government.
“I have said time without number that we have criminals among all the tribe and not peculiar to Fulani. Those who are suffering the injustice now are not the criminals they are hunting for. These are good people and not criminals. Government should do the needful to ensure peace returns to the Ibarapa axis,” he said.
