Meanwhile, a youth group in Kwara State, Kwara South Movement, on Saturday warned the Sarkin Fulani Oyo State, Saliu Abdulkadri, to be law-abiding during his stay in the state or he would get evicted.

Recall that Abdulkadri and his men left Igangan in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State to Kwara State following the seven-day eviction notice issued by Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.

Igboho called on criminal herdsmen in the local government area to vacate the community following cases of kidnapping, rape and other criminal activities.

The Yoruba activist accused the Fulani leader in Oyo State of harbouring the herders allegedly kidnapping and killing residents of the community.

The group in a statement released through its coordinator, Saheed Olayinka Odofin, and secretary, Adeyinka Adeoye, called on Abdulkadri to be law-abiding in his activities in the state.
