Sunday Adeyemo fondly called Sunday Igboho has berated some South Western traditional and political rulers, terming them slaves to the Fulanis’ in the ongoing Herdsmen crisis that has engulfed the South West.
Following the fight against killer herdsmen invasion in villages, Igboho had held a virtual meeting with Yoruba leaders in Nigeria and in the diaspora. In the meeting, he made it known that the support of the leaders is needed to end this menace.
According to him, “I am not concerned about the police. The struggle is about Yoruba agenda as it concerns the security situation in our land and I trust Yoruba people for support. People are afraid because of the atrocities of the herders. We also pray that our leaders will support us irrespective of the fear of being arrested. They should be able to talk to President Muhammadu Buhari on security in Yoruba land“.
Stressing on Ooni’s visit to President Buhari on the security of the South West, Igboho said, “When Ooni visited Buhari, the president received him by standing up but he said something I don’t like. That is why the Alaafin called me. He wants to tackle what Ooni said. Ooni should be able to tell Buhari about what Yoruba want. But he has collected dollars from Buhari. He called me but I don’t want to see him. Only Alaafin is supporting us and he has written a letter to the president. Ooni disappointed me. Politicians are with him”.
Talking about the Oluwo of Iwo, Igboho said, “The Oluwo will wear a 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?”.
Slamming the politicians, Igboho attested that, “Tinubu and other Yoruba politicians are 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, we do not look or behave alike in any way. The herders should go. Makinde is also a slave to the herders because of second term ambition”.
