This is coming less than four days he had a stand-off with Fulani herdsmen in part of Oyo State who he had gone to eject for allegedly perpetrating kidnapping and rape in the area.

The fire reportedly started around 3am in the apartment located in the Soka area of Oyo State.

The source of the fire was unknown as of the time of filing this report but it was gathered that fire fighters from the Oyo State Fire Service arrived at the scene a few hours after to douse the fire.

Igboho, who is the Akoni Oodua of Yoruba land, had asked herdsmen in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to leave within seven days.

At the expiration of the ultimatum last week, he and his followers had stormed the Fulani settlement in the ancient town to eject Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir, and herdsmen accused of perpetrating crimes ranging from kidnappings, killings, rape to invasion of farmlands with their cattle.

Some houses and property in the settlement of the Fulanis were torched last week.
