Yorubas in Kano especially those from Ogbomoso have denounced reports from the media which describes a suspected operational commander of the boko haram as a yoruba from Oyo state. The suspect, Suleiman Mohammed was arrested alongside his wife and 5 children in Kano by the JTF during a raid of his residence in which explosives and ammunition where recovered.

Spokesman for the group stated.....
“We are saying with all emphasis that there is no Ogbomoso indigene bearing that name. And if the security operatives doubt it, let them tell us the suspect’s family compound name. We demand for clarity of purpose from the security agencies”
A source at the palace of the monarch of Ogbomoso who pleaded anonymity stated that “Since the news broke the palace has been inundated with calls and enquiries. However, our reaction for now is that we’ll want to know more about the suspect. Who is his father and from which compound or adugbo (ward) does he come from.”
According to him, because a suspect claims he hails from a place is not enough to believe him. He called on security agencies to do their investigations well before making public information that would further divide the country and lead to disaffection. "As far as we are concerned we do not know him. He is only claiming that he hails from Ogbomoso but there is a group, known as Ogbomoso Parapo. You can contact them at their secretariat on Church Road to confirm whether they know him but for the Yoruba parent body in Kano, we do not know him.”
