Yoruba activist Sunday Igboho on Tuesday, responded to comments that he was a political thug for hire.
The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Political Matters, Babafemi Ojodu on Monday has published a piece describing how he, Ojodu, had intervened to convince Igboho from disrupting an Ekiti governorship election in 2009.
But Igboho said he does not know Ojodu.
“I have noticed that the agitations that I am championing over the killer Fulani herdsmen is being politicised to malign and weaken me,” he said.
“Those politicians are lying. All the claims of that man called Babafemi Ojudu are all lies. I have nothing to do with him. I do not know him.
“Until those killer herdsmen leave our father’s land, I will not rest. There is no politician funding me for these agitations.
“Since the killer herdsmen have been killing and kidnapping our people in Ibarapa, no one or government visited the place until I went to expose the havoc being wreaked on our people. No one or group came to their rescue in Ibarapa until I went there.
“I have to go because they are my family, I have the same tribal marks with Mr Aborode who was killed by these killer herdsmen.
“I challenge any politician who claims to fund me to come out openly and say so.
“What I want is for peace to reign in Yoruba land.”
