Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has estimated the damage and loss suffered in the early Tuesday morning fire at his residence at Soka, Ibadan, at N50 million.
Speaking with journalists shortly after the fire incident, suspected to have been caused by arsonists, Adeyemo described the perpetrators as cowards.
Adeyemo was recently in the news for giving eviction notice to Fulani herdsmen in Igangan, Ibarapa North LGA of Oyo State.
The notice followed allegations of killings, rapes and kidnappings levelled against the Fulani herdsmen in the community.
Adeyemo said that the house attacked by the suspected hoodlums was his old residence, adding that the perpetrators did not have the guts to attack where he lives.
“When the fire started, they called me and by the time I got there, the arsonist had fled.
“They are cowards. Why can’t they come to where I live? You would have seen evidence because they won’t escape,” he said.
On the speculation that he has been tipped to be the commander of Western Nigeria Security Network (WNSN) codenamed Amotekun, Adeyemo said he was not interested in such.
