Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, more commonly called Sunday Igboho, has reassured his supporters that the movement to actualise the Oodua Republic was still on track, while emphasising that he has not given up on the agitation.
Igboho 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, Igboho gave the assurance.
Speaking via zoom platform, Igboho said: “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 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.
