Yoruba self-determination activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has cautioned stakeholders in the fight against insecurity of the South-West to be wary of divisive pronouncements and actions that could undermine the struggle for the Yoruba nation.
Igboho’s comment is coming against the backdrop of the controversy generated by the statement credited to the former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, who alleged that the man arrested by the Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, was not the real Iskilu Wakili, the dreaded Fulani terrorist. Fani-Kayode was quoted to have said the arrested man was actually the father of the murderous terrorist.
This drew the ire of the Oyo State Coordinator of the OPC, Rotimi Olumo, who described Fani-Kayode as a “misinformation expert” that should be ignored.
Throwing his full support behind the Minister, Igboho warned those he described as “creating disunity” in the Yoruba nation to desist and work towards the goal of achieving unity among the Yoruba race irrespective of political affiliation.
“Anyone who is willing to support the agitation for the Yoruba Nation is highly welcome, the goal is ‘YORUBA NATION NOW.’
“We know what we want and no going back. Every other side talk is nothing but a distraction. we are fully focused, YORUBA NATION is the goal. Let me reiterate, anything you did not hear from me, Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho) or my spoke person Olayomi Koiki of Koiki Media is not a fact.
“There is no reason to doubt Fani-Kayode who has been rightly identified as a stakeholder in the struggle for the Yoruba Nation. Chief Femi Fani Kayode is one of the stakeholders that identifies with us on the struggle of Yoruba Nation agitation.
“He can give his own advice at any time as regards the agitation and there’s no reason to doubt him. We have 100 per cent confidence in him. Let’s not talk with envy, We must unite and stay strong in one voice.
“Therefore, we want to identify with Chief Femi Fani Kayode and any other person that stands for the Yoruba race irrespective of their religion or political party affiliation.”
