Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has again indicated his interest in returning to Nigeria, after fleeing the country more than two years ago. Sunday Igboho, who spoke in a viral video, revealed that he would soon return to his country home of Oyo in Southwest Nigeria, saying no one would intimidate him any longer.
According to his words; “I am coming back to Ibadan; I am originally from Oyo State. I am coming back home. So, Yorubas should not be afraid and nothing will happen; nobody can make the other person afraid,” he said in the video footage obtained by Peoples Gazette on Wednesday.
“My agitation was in place and the question I asked the Nigerian government was in order, and the court has justified my demands. Also, the N20 billion Nigerian governments owes me will be paid,” the activist added.
Sahara Reporters had also in November 2022 reported that Sunday Igboho reassured his supporters that the movement to actualise of the Oodua Republic was still on track, while emphasizing that he had not given up on the agitation. Sunday Igboho had noted that the time for the Yoruba nation had come and that he would soon be returning to Nigeria.
Recall that the activist fled Nigeria about 15 months ago to Cotonou, Benin Republic, following an invasion on his residence by the Department of States Services, DSS. But the freedom fighter vowed to see to it that Yoruba nation was actually realized.
At Bishop Ajayi Crowther’s annual posthumous birthday celebration in Ibadan, Oyo State, Sunday Igboho had given the assurance through a zoom video communication. Speaking via zoom platform, Sunday Igboho stated saying; “I thank you all for your support since the inception of this just cause, and by God’s grace, the Fulani’s herdsmen activities against our people will end in our land. The Yoruba nation will soon be achieved and it will be better than all the nations in the world.
“My message to Yoruba people worldwide, who are passionate about the country of their own is not to lose hope. I am more than convinced that we are on our way to freedom. Our agitation is an idea whose time has come. I will come back to Yorubaland soon.”
SaharaReporters had recently reported that Sunday Igboho called on monarchs in the region to convene a meeting and discuss the security situation in the South-West. He also debunked reports from some quarters that he was no longer interested in the struggle for the Yoruba Nation.
