Saliu Seriki’s daughter, Hauwau has reacted to the quit notice issued to her family to vacate Ibarapa region following the spate of kidnappings and gruesome killings that have ravaged the region in recent times.
The Fulani herders in the region have been alleged to be the perpetrators of the heinous acts, which include kidnappings and wanton killings.
The Igboho-born activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho had visited the Seriki Fulani’s residence at Igangan on Friday January 15, 2021 to express displeasure over brutality of the Fulani herdsmen that have claimed lives and properties worth millions of naira in the region lately.
Chief Igboho, however, gave Saliu Seriki and the entire Fulanis ultimatum of 7 days to vacate Ibarapa land.
This, according to him is the only way to stem insecurity in the region.
Reacting to the quit notice on her WhatsApp status, Hauwau Seriki noted that Yoruba should be ashamed of driving fulani herdsmen out of their community, pointing that President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, is a Fulani man.
Hauwau described the public outrage and the decision of Ibarapa residents to expel Fulanis from their land as uncalled for, adding that her father had spent more than fifty years in the area.
She threatened Sunday Igboho for his intervention in the security challenges by asking her father, Saliu Seriki, to quit Ibarapa land.
She wrote: “Sunday, Sunday, I pity your generation. You start the war and you will end it.
“You people want war right, you want your father’s land?
“Fulani is your President. You people should be ashamed of saying you will send away Fulanis in your father land.
Did your fathers bring land from heaven?
“Saliu Seriki has been on that land for more than 50 years. Now you are telling him to vacate your father land. You must be stupid.
“By the time my father meets with Buhari, you will cry for help. You never know Saliu Seriki is on his way to Abuja. He is a man of his words, “awon were omo odudua,” she retorted.
