Ibadan Invasion: Igboho, Akintoye Disown Yoruba Nation Agitators


    The leader of Yoruba Self Determination group, Professor Banji Akintoye and Yoruba Nation Activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho have distanced themselves from a group of agitators that invaded the Oyo State Government Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan on  Saturday.

    The duo said they were not aware or in support of the agitators and their actions.

    Akintoye said those involved were not fighting for Yoruba interests but against the Yorubas in their conducts.

    He said available information indicated the group appointed an interim government for the Yoruba Nation and decided to take over the region from the Oyo State secretariat, which informed the deployment of men in military camouflage.

    Prof Akintoye said: “I am not connected, I have no contact and I do not know anything about Onitiri and her group. I don’t know what they are doing.

    I learnt they are engaged in some sort of insanity in Ibadan but that is entirely they, and it has noting to do with me or people like Chief Sunday Igboho who are working with me.

    “We are the authentic Yoruba Nation Movement. We are not connected. We are the people fighting for Yoruba Nation freedom and we will win the war peacefully and in an orderly manner.

    “They are not struggling for the Yoruba Nation, they are struggling against the Yoruba Nation. I am not aware of the situation that happened in Ibadan until I was informed by Chief Sunday Igboho this morning. I am not part of it. They are not from us. They are followers of Onitiri. It is a lunatic fringe. We in this struggle won’t act in such a manner.”

    Sunday Igboho said he will never be involved in such madness noting that anytime he wants to engage in any struggle, he will always make it public and carry other stakeholders along.

    He said “I know nothing about it. I am not even aware of those behind it. If I am going to do anything, either for early or any struggle for Yoruba Nation, you know we will inform people ahead.

    “We will announce our plans and all our leaders and other stakeholders will also be involved and we will collaborate to do so.

    “So, anything they now do on their own, either they attack the government or military barrack or Police station, I know nothing about it and I am not part of it.”
