Fuji musician King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal aka K1 De Ultimate has sent a message to President Bola Tinubu.
He pleaded with Tinubu to pardon embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho so that he can return to the country.
Recall that in July 2021, Igboho was arrested by the Interpol at Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
Prior to his arrest, the Department of State Services (DSS) declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling weapons in his residence.
The secession agitator was detained in a prison in the Benin Republic but was released in March 2022 to get medical attention on the condition that he would not leave the West African country.
Since his release, Igboho has remained confined within Cotonou.
K1 De Ultimate, in his passionate appeal during a live performance, sang melodiously on the need for peace in the country, calling for Igboho’s pardon.
He urged Tinubu to harmonise all interests, premising his argument on Nigeria’s unity.
He said: “Asiwaju, please anyone who has offended you, kindly forgive them. Irrespective of their tribes — Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa — we need to embrace ourselves.
“Akanbi, please let Sunday Igboho come back home, he’s one of our own. ‘Omo eni o sedi bebere, ka fi ileke si idi omo elomi’ (the borrowed translation is — “One cannot say because one’s daughter has ample buttocks he would put the waistbeads on another man’s daughter”)
“Please when you (Tinubu) settle properly in office, kindly resolve this grey area. Let Sunday Igboho return to his root. Likewise other agitators from various regions, call their leaders to a roundtable discussion.
“I know it is what you can do, and you can do it.”
Kwam 1 further prayed for the success of Tinubu’s administration.
