Many people were feared dead on Friday when supporters of cultural activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, and Fulani herdsmen clashed in Igangan, Oyo State in the bid to dislodge the Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir, and his people from the area.
Igboho had on Friday stormed the area with a large number of his supporters bearing arms in fulfilment of his promise to dislodge the Fulanis in the area, who he accused of serial murder and kidnapping.
As earlier reported by The Eagle Online, operatives of the Nigerian Army watched as the supporters of Igboho massed in the area.
However, reports by The PUNCH had it that only two persons died in the clash.
One youth from Igboora was reportedly killed by Fulani fighters, while two others sustained injuries from gunshots.
Abdukadir told The PUNCH that one Fulani woman was killed, adding that he had fled the town before Igboho and his supporters arrived.
Igboho had last week issued a seven-day quit notice to Abdukadir and his people.
