Sunday adeyemi a.k.a sunday igboho has described some Yoruba leaders as Fulani slaves, including traditional rulers who are not showing enough support for the fight against the herdsmen in yoruba land.
Igboho, during a virtual town hall meeting, said the Ooni and some other yoruba leaders are interested in their own pocket even when they claim to have the yoruba interest at mind.
During the meeting which started at 11:15pm, but Igboho joined at 12:16am, saying he was just entering Oyo town to see Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin of Oyo, for a meeting. He said the monarch is in supporter of his struggles against the herdsmen.
The yoruba activist, who confronted the herdsmen at Ibarapa has also issued a seven-day ultimatum to the herders, blaming them for the terrorist operations and destruction of farmland in oyo state.
After confronting the herders in Ibarapa with some youths and his followers in the area, he moved to Ogun state on Monday and was received by thousands of youths.
According to him, he’s clear the air that the fight to liberate the Yoruba and bring peace to the yoruba land is not for the police but for all Yoruba people, irrespective of where the yoruba people are.
He also included that the yoruba leaders should support the movement even if it’s by talking to the President Muhammadu Buhari on security in Yoruba land.
He also said what Ooni of ife did that doesn’t pleases him is when Ooni visited Buhari, the president received him by standing up and that’s what he don’t like. That is why the Alaafin called me. He wants to tackle what Ooni did.
The youth leader has also criticised Abdulrasheed Akanbi, the Oluwo f Iwo, for calling himself an Emir. He said some Yoruba leaders have made themselves slaves of the ethnic tribe that oppresses their people because of money.
“The Oluwo will wear turban and start calling himself an Emir, our people should call him and tell him to stop what he is doing. Our leaders are lazy and slaves to Fulanis. They visit Abuja to collect money, we will attack them and destroy their property. Ooni should be dealt with. I am annoyed. Why should we be afraid of the crown they (Yoruba monarchs)wear?.
Sunday who’ve also dragged the likes of Tinubu( APC Leader), seyi makinde(oyo stategovernor), and other Yoruba politicians,calling them “Fulani slaves”.
“We need not be afraid. I have not collected any money from anyone. I am a full Yoruba man and I will not allow Fulani people to enslave me, The herders should go.”
Igboho said he has not received financial support from anyone, adding that he needs buses to transport his followers to places where the herders are creating havoc.
During the meeting, some of the participants called on Igboho to stop recording and releasing videos of his activities. A caller also advised him to stop attacking Yoruba leaders, saying they are not speaking up because of the respect for the Nigerian constitution.
A caller also said Yoruba monarchs should stop giving land to the herders, calling on the people to rise in support of Igboho.
At the end of the meeting, several WhatsApp groups were set up and account numbers were given for people to donate money to support Igboho activities to bring peace to yoruba land.
