The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III reportedly visited the National Leader of the All Progressives Party (APC); Bola Ahmed Tinubu at his Bourdillon residence in Lagos on Saturday.
The first-class monarch from Oyo state was reported to have visited the APC leader with his son, a current member of the House of Representatives; Akeem Adeyemi.
Although the detail of the meeting is unknown, it is not exclusive of the recent outcry for the secession of the Yoruba states from Nigeria; a campaign championed by one popular Yoruba campaigner; Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.
In an online picture posted by the king’s son; Hon. Akeem Adeyemi, the duo of Alaafin and Tinubu was observed to be engaged in a thoughtful discussion.
Sources privy of this meeting said it’s rather more of a call for a Yoruba presidency than secession of the Southwest zone from Nigeria.
Sources also said the APC leader must have called on the monarch to help plead and pacify Igboho whose campaign was hinged on the spate of insecurity in Yoruba states.
Mr. Sunday Adeyemo believed that the Hausa/Fulani are responsible for the different cases of killings, raping, farm destruction and abduction that has bedevilled the Yoruba people. He also claimed that the Federal Government saddled with the responsibility of protecting lives and properties have neglected their democratic responsibilities by aligning with killer herdsmen and compensating them to the detriment of the victims.
Sunday Igboho also stated that the president has chosen to be dangerously Nepotistic by appointing only person’s of Hausa/Fulani descent into the key post against the dictates of the federal character.
Details of their meeting will be published in subsequent news bulletin.
