Sunday Adeyemo

Popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, well known as Sunday Igboho, has said the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, disappointed the Yoruba people when he visited the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), of recent over the herdsmen crisis rocking the South-West region.
The activist stated this on Wednesday morning at a virtual ‘Townhall With Yoruba In Diaspora’ monitored by Akelicious.
According to him, the monarch failed to convey the pains and displeasure of the Yoruba people to the President during the visit.
The PUNCH had reported that Igboho issued a seven-day quit notice to herdsmen accused of sundry crimes in the Ibarapa area of Oyo State and enforced same.
Oba Ogunwusi after meeting the President, however, urged Igboho not to take laws into his hands.
The monarch had said though Igboho has done well to speak for the downtrodden, it was time he
allowed the constituted authorities including the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, to take charge and
handle the security challenges in the state.

But the activist said some politicians were behind Ooni’s latest move, adding that the monarch disappointed the Yoruba people by not speaking against the killer herdsmen in the region when he met with the President.
Igboho said, “The monarchs are now afraid but we must keep praying for them to be united with one voice. They should not be afraid of arrest at their age.
Some of them don’t even grant audience at their palaces any longer. So, everything is now in God’s hands.
“When Ooni met with Buhari over the herdsmen issue, Ooni should have told Buhari the truth but he
did not. When Ooni returned, he started tackling me to leave the remaining task to the government to finish. You can imagine that kind of talk?
“Alaafin of Oyo has asked me to meet him over the matter. Alaafin should have been the one invited to meet Buhari but since the Ooni was invited, he should be bold to tell the President the whole truth
and make the demands of the Yoruba people known to the President.
