The apex Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has condemned the controversial Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi’s recent visit to Igboho town.
The organisation was reacting to a video circulating online, showing Gumi standing by the signpost of a school in Modeke area of Igboho, the birthplace of Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
Reacting, Spokesman of Afenifere, Jare Ajayi said: “But the circumstance of their visit to Igboho and what they said while in the town are not only provocative and inciting but also a way of mocking the people of the area and the person of Sunday Adeyemo.
“While in Igboho, Gumi showed some cows grazing near a school compound in the area and said that it showed that anybody should be free to graze anywhere without being molested.
“We take serious exception to Gumi or anyone else from outside Yorubaland to come and declare the area as belonging to any particular religion.”
