A house belonging to Yoruba rights activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Sunday Igboho in Soka, Ibadan was razed by suspected arsonists.
The fire, which reportedly started around 3 am on Tuesday, destroyed some parts of the house.
However, firefighters from the Oyo State Fire Service arrived on the scene a few hours after to douse the fire.
No statement has been obtained from Igboho on the incident.
The incident happened few days after Igboho asked herdsmen in the Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to leave within seven days.
At the expiration of the ultimatum last week, he and his followers stormed the Fulani settlement in the ancient town to eject the Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir.
