Oduduwa: There Will Be Trouble If Any Soldier Or Police Touch One Of Us — Subday Igboho

Sunday Igboho, has threatened that there will be unrest in Nigeria if anyone among those agitating for Oduduwa Republic is touched by policemen or soldiers.

Igboho said this in a video circulating the social media, where him, Professor Banji Akintoye, along with some Yoruba leaders stated that they have declared Yoruba Sovereignty.

Igboho, who spoke at the conference, said the South-West states were no longer under Nigeria.

His comment followed others he had made in the past such as there being no basis for one Nigeria as insecurity continued to spread to Yoruba land.

In the video, he encouraged Yoruba people living in other parts of the country to return to the South-West region.

Igboho said the Yoruba kingdom was united in the latest agitation, and had the backing of all its traditional leaders. He challenged any Yoruba ruler who did not support him to openly refute his claims.

He said, “All the Yoruba youths in this land support our father (Banji Akintoye). We are in support because we know that these are our real fathers who understand that we are fighting for our rights against people that are disturbing us on our land. If we meet any Fulani herdsman, we are ready to face and destroy them starting from now. If any policeman attacks us for that, we are ready for them.

“We are ready to challenge a country that has nothing for the Yoruba people, we are taking back our territory. I meet with 5-year-old, 6-year-old children, that have no fathers, mothers, nothing. These children smoke Indian hemp, this country is finished, we don’t want Nigeria again, we want the Yoruba nation, we don’t fear anybody, we fear only God, enough is enough.

“Fulanis are cheating us, they rape our women, make videos of that so we can see. Benin Republic is not up to Osun State, and they are living in peace, there is security. Yoruba citizens are going to work as maids there, some of our people are even sent back when they don’t have their papers. When some of us here were little, Ghanaians came here to work as cobblers, but now, Yorubas are asked to leave.

“No Yoruba person holds a major political position in Nigeria, this is the 14th year a Yoruba man was the Inspector-General of Police, no Yoruba man was ever a Chief of Army Staff, no Yoruba has been in that position. Hausa Fulani heads everything, instead. They gave us the position of Vice President that cannot make any major decision.

“All Yoruba citizens are in support of our move to secede, Banji Akintoye, Afenifere, the Yorubas know about it. Any of them that says he is not in support should make a video and refute this claim.

“If we learn that a soldier or policeman touches one of us, there will be trouble, we don’t want Fulani herdsmen, they should go their way. From tomorrow, we will go from place to place and sensitise people about security, we won’t see Fulani again.

“These herdsmen go about to destroy our crops and then end up selling food to us, is that not slavery? The average Seriki Fulani palace is bigger than that of a Yoruba king. We thank the Olubadan for disempowering a Seriki Fulani and placed him under a Baale. What the Fulanis do here, no Yoruba citizen can do such in the North. Why are we slaves in our land?

“Our senators and honourable will be held up in traffic, see underage children selling snacks, they will buy from them, is that not bad?

“There are Yorubas in different countries of the world. We plead with the United Nations to separate us from Nigeria before it turns to war, if they don’t come, it will be worse than this. As it stands now, we are no longer Nigeria, we are no longer under dictatorial government, we sleep in fear, eat in fear, are we slaves?

“Some say Yoruba people are not united, we are! If you want to try us, touch one of us. Any king that says he is not with us, should make a video and make his claim. Yoruba citizens in Hausa land, come back home, this suffering is enough.”
