Supporters of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho have set up a Gofundme page to raise £100,000 (N51.8m) for him to buy buses to implement his project of ridding the south-west of killer herdsmen.
Initiated by a UK-based blogger and activist Maureen Badejo, the fundraiser had generated £9, 515 (N4.9m) within 19 hours from 267 donors, as of press time.
A donor Sidikat Olufowobi who donated £200 wrote, “I donated because I am a Yoruba woman and want peace in my part of the country.”
A £50 donor Kunle Makinwa wrote, “I am an Oodua tokan tokan (through and through). We will get (sic) by the grace of God Almighty.”
Sunday Igboho has vowed to take his quest to all parts of Yorubaland.
He had earlier issued a seven-day ultimatum to herders in the Ibarapa area of Oyo state, blaming them for kidnapping, killings, destruction of farmland and insecurity in the state.
Meanwhile, Igboho who earlier threw shades at the Ooni of Ife has today tendered an unreserved apology to the first class monarch.
