Remmy Hazzan, Special Adviser on Public Communications to Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, says popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, well known as Sunday Igboho, is welcome in the state.
“Anybody who is hoping to help us with the security situation is welcome. Not only Sunday Igboho, whoever has what it takes to help us get security right is welcome in Ogun State,” Hazzan said on PUNCH Live on Saturday.
Residents and some monarchs of Ketu-speaking villages in the Yewa North Local Government Area of the state had lamented that they were brutalised by soldiers who escorted herdsmen to graze in their communities.
Igboho, who had issued a seven-day quit notice to herdsmen accused of sundry crimes in the Ibarapa area of Oyo State and enforced same, had also said he and his supporters would storm Ogun and other South-West states.
When asked if the state government was ready for the ‘visit’ by Igboho, the Ogun State governor’s aide said any stakeholders who would help the security architecture of the state was welcome.
Hazzan, however, stressed that Igboho “would be welcome for consultation” only and not for any form of violence or confrontation.
