The group asked the Alaafin of Oyo and the state government to replace him with a trusted, tested and integrity personality among Fulani community.

Briefing newsmen at the end of a meeting organised to discuss issues affecting the Fulani community in Oyo State, the immediate past Chairman of Miyyeti Allah who briefed newsmen, Alhaj Yakubu Bello Modibo, said their actions were as a result of various allegations levelled against the embattled former Seriki Fulani.

Reacting to the allegations, the Seriki Fulani, Chief Saliu Kadiri said he was still around in the state, urging the Alaafin of Oyo State to ignore them.
