Stop staging protests in my name – Igboho to supporters
Ojo Peter, Ibadan
Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has warned his supporters against staging any protests in his name.
Igboho made this known in a statement issued by his lawyer, Yomi Aliyu (SAN).
It will be recalled that Igboho, was recently arrested in Cotonou on his way to Germany after he was declared wanted by the Nigerian government.
Although he is still in a Benin Republic prison, he has, through Alliyu, warned his supporters against staging any protest or attacking any public place or security personnel on the pretext of agitating for the Yoruba nation, in his name.
According to the statement, “There is time for everything. Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho Oosa is desirous of respecting those murdered in his house on that black 1st July 2021.
“In that wise, he has advised against staging any demonstration or rally in his name, for the time being.
“He will also like people to respect his family by not calling his mum out for anything public. Igboho for now has no authentic mouthpiece anywhere.
“In that wise, people are advised to take anything said by anybody claiming to be from him with a pinch of salt.“Let’s respect the dead. On no account should anybody attack any public place or security personnel on the pretence of agitating for the Yoruba nation.
