The Gofundme page set up by supporters of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, has risen to £42, 401 (N22.4m).

A blogger, Maureen Badejo, had two weeks ago set up the Gofundme page for the purpose of raising £100,000 (N51.8m) for him to buy buses to implement his project of ridding the South-West of killer herdsmen.

Igboho had issued a seven-day ultimatum to herders in the Ibarapa Area of Oyo State, blaming them for kidnapping, killings, destruction of farmland and insecurity in the state.

After confronting the herders in Ibarapa with some youths in the area at the expiration of the ultimatum, he moved to Ogun State and was received by thousands of youths.

The rising ethnic conflicts have led to the loss of lives in Oyo and Ondo States.
