Sunday Majasola Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, an activist and Yoruba freedom fighter has described some of Yoruba leaders and traditional rulers as slaves of Fulanis.
Adeyemo made this known during a Virtual townhall meeting with the Yoruba in Diaspora. Many people are excited to hear of what the Comrade and his people have been doing on the security issues and moving forward.
Adeyemo said “I am not concerned about the police. The struggle is about the Yoruba agenda as it concerns the security situation in our land and I trust the 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 their fear of being arrested. They should be able to talk to President Muhammadu Buhari on security in Yoruba land.”
He also 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.”
On need to support his struggle, he said “I need buses to transport people. The three vans we use are bought by me. We lost three buses that were hired on our way to Oyo. Ooni should be able to tell Buhari about what Yoruba wants. 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.”
“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?”
“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 anyway. The herders should go. Makinde is also a slave to the herders because of his second term ambition”, he lamented.
