Yoruba Nation lead agitator, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho has called on all his supporters to honour him by being present at the Court of Appeal Ibadan, Oyo State, as his suit with the Department of State Services, DSS, resumes today.
Recall Igboho is in a legal battle with the DSS over destruction of his properties and loss of lives at his residence, when security operatives raided his home on July 1, 2021.
The DSS is contesting a N20 billion fine, saying paying the damages awarded against it by an Oyo State High Court, sitting in Ibadan, to Igboho will affect the Nigerian economy.
The DSS had invaded Igboho’s house in Ibadan, killing two of his aides, while 12 others were arrested.
The 49-year-old Yoruba Nation leader, who escaped the bloody raid, was declared wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms to destabilise Nigeria.
Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic, while trying to flee to Germany.
He was detained in a prison in Benin Republic but was released in March 2022 to get medical attention on the condition that he would not leave the French-speaking country.
Meanwhile, earlier today in a video on his timeline, Igboho refuted claims that he abandoned the agitation for Yoruba Nation, insisting that there is no going back on the issue of actualising Yoruba Nation.
In his latest video, the agitator urged Yoruba monarchs to mobilise and support the agitation for Oduduwa Republic.
According to Igboho: “I, Sunday Adeyemo and all those who are following me on the issue of Yoruba Nation, there is no going back for us.
“There are talks around that we have stopped clamouring for Yoruba Nation, that is not true, it is an unconfirmed rumour. We want Yoruba Nation, we want to be free from slavery because what God has given us on our land is enough to feed us.
“I want you, the Yoruba monarchs, to call a meeting, come together, you can see how our people are being killed everywhere, this is not good. Please come together and support us, may you live long. Yoruba Nation, no going back”, he added.
