Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has advised Oyo state Governor, Seyi Makinde to embrace the use of dialogue and persuasion to resolve the ongoing tension in the state.
The Nation reported that on Friday, Igboho stormed the Fulani settlements in the town to eject the Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir, and some other herdsmen accused of fuelling security problems in the area at the expiration of his ‘quit notice’.
In the now-viral video, Sunday Igboho challenged Oyo Governor Seyi Makinde to arrest him if he can over the eviction order he issued.
Meanwhile, Presidency says the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the arrest of Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
Fayose in a series of tweet on Saturday said, “Gov. Seyi Makinde should rather use dialogue and persuasion instead of escalating tensions in his own State by calling for the arrest of Sunday Adeyemo.
“If FG and some Governors could ‘dialogue’ with Boko Haram terrorists, Gov. Makinde calling all stakeholders to a round-table discussion will not be misplaced action.”
Fayose said any attempt to arrest anyone will cause serious threats to the fragile peace in the West and the nation.
“Above all any unchecked escalation may lead to a state of emergency,” Fayose added.
