Mr. Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba nation agitator, spends125 days in Cotonou prison, the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has urged traditional rulers and Yoruba elders to engage President Muhammadu Buhari in a dialogue to secure his release.
A statement by Oba Akanbi yesterday urged monarchs to harmonize their interest in securing the release of Igboho.
He noted that the “oneness of Nigeria could be further cemented on the release of Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu.”
If the Yoruba monarchs, elders, and stakeholders are willing to talk to President Buhari, Sunday Igboho continued detainment may be addressed.
“Sunday Igboho is our son; he has made some mistakes, which are realizable on the agitation for the Yoruba nation. The approach is jeopardizing the intention. I urge stakeholders in Yoruba affairs to harmonize their interests, come together and approach the country’s leaders for the release of embattled Igboho.
“Granting such request will entrench the unity of Nigeria and foster a harmonious understanding. The Federal Government has the exclusive charisma to liberate the face of Yoruba nation agitator at this critical time. Our son must be rescued. Releasing Igboho without recourse to legal lingering litigation will earn the government credit. It is a credit of maturity and unity”
