Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has described the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, and other leaders of the South West region as ”Fulani slaves”.
Igboho disclosed this when he spoke at a virtual town hall meeting on Tuesday, February 2. According to Igboho, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and other leaders from the region are interested in their own gains even though they claim to represent the Yoruba people.
In his words
“When Ooni visited Buhari, the president received him by standing up but he said something I don’t like. That is why the Alaafin called me. He wants to tackle what Ooni said.
Ooni should be able to tell Buhari about what Yoruba want. But he has collected dollars from Buhari. He called me but I don’t want to see him. Only Alaafin is supporting us and he has written a letter to the president. Ooni disappointed me. Politicians are with him.
The Oluwo (of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi) will wear turban and start calling himself an Emir, our people should call him and tell him to stop what he is doing. Our leaders are lazy and slaves to Fulanis. They visit Abuja to collect money, we will attack them and destroy their property. Ooni should be dealt with. I am annoyed. Why should we be afraid of the crown they (Yoruba monarchs) wear?
Tinubu and other Yoruba politicians are Fulani slaves. We need not be afraid. I have not collected any money from anyone. I am a full Yoruba man and I will not allow Fulani people to enslave me, we do not look or behave alike in any way. The herders should go. Makinde is also a slave to the herders because of second term ambition.”
Igboho made news two weeks ago following the eviction notice he gave to Fulani herdsmen in Oyo state. He accused the Fulanis of masterminding various criminal activities in the South West region.
