Sunday Igboho not our freedom fighter, say youths

Supporters of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo (a.k.a Sunday Igboho), turned out in their numbers at Cour De’appal De Cotonou for his trial.

The Yoruba-speaking supporters from both the  Southwest in Nigeria and Benin Republic were in the court to ensure that Igboho was either freed or received a fair hearing.

They were said to have been mobilized by a Yoruba rights group, Isokan Omo Odudua.

Also at the court  was  a delegation sent by  Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi,  and Olubadan of  Ibadanland Oba Saliu Adetunji.

The Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, praised Oba  Ogunwusi  and      Oba  Adetunji for sending the team.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Jare Ajayi, Afenifere also lauded Yoruba communities in the Benin Republic for ensuring that Igboho, an Oduduwa son, did not suffer unjustly.

The group argued that the agitator’s travail ought not to have occurred if there had been good governance in Nigeria.

The statement partly reads: “It is so sad that President Muhammadu Buhari‘s administration is concentrating on hunting and harassing those who are seeking relief from the oppressive situation in Nigeria while shying away from tackling kidnapping, terrorism, and other issues bordering on ethnic cleansing.

“By its conduct, the government is giving people reasons to believe the allegation that it is pursuing a Fulanisation agenda.

“Harassment of freedom agitators and innocent citizens must stop forthwith” Afenifere warned..”

But some  youths from the 17 states in the South said the Yoruba Nation agitator must face trial.

The youth, under the aegis of Southern Youth Forum (SYF),  said  that the political  narratives about   Igboho’s arrest and  his possible extradition to Nigeria should be of concern to patriotic Nigerians.

The leaders of the  forum,   John Atani (Southsouth),  Fidelis Nze (Southeast) and   Oladimeji Odeyemi (Southwest), who addressed reporters on the Igboho saga  in Lagos said Igboho was not a freedom fighter, but a known political thug, smuggler, and land grabber.

They said: “As youths, we don’t think leaders who vowed to protect the sanctity of our Constitution should fold their hands and look away while some inept clout-chasers destroy the legacy of our heroes past when they actually possess passports of other countries.

“You can’t incite war in a multi-diverse country like Nigeria and not be there when the battle commends. Our findings indicate that the said Igboho was using his one-man show for personal gains but we trust that the law will take its due course on his matter when he is eventually extradited to Nigeria.
