Killer Herdsmen Out: I’m Back to Chase – Sunday Igboho Warns

Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, is a Yoruba nation activist who has declared that he is returning to Yorubaland to pursue killer herdsmen.

In a video that went viral on Tuesday, he made these remarks to a group of supporters after his mother’s funeral in his hometown of the Igboho area of Oyo State.

The Yoruba-speaking activist claimed that neither the federal government nor the army stationed in Yorubaland—particularly in Ekiti, where kings were assassinated in broad daylight—could bring an end to the alleged murderers.

“I want you all to stand with me so that we can free ourselves from the encroaching herders on our lands,” he declared. If we don’t establish security throughout the Yoruba territories, they will seize our territory.

“We don’t need to hold out for the authorities or anybody else. Just let’s get to work together. These herders are the reason we are unable to farm on our grounds. And our people are outraged and going hungry. The soldiers that the government says it has sent to Ekiti State are not necessary. We operate in line with our Elders and mount places.

“My fear used to be my mother, but now that she’s gone, I don’t have anything to fear.” I’m returning now to reclaim our territory.

The activist from Ibadan questioned whether he could be working for politicians and whether they would still want him dead, while criticizing the rumour that he was employed by them.

“I work for no political party. If I happened to smack someone, the authorities would be more than happy to take me into custody. I’m prepared to act to put an end to these marauders’ operations on our territory, but I know they are attentively observing me right now to see what I will do next,” he insisted.

Adeyemo managed to flee from a deadly Department of State Service nighttime raid on his Ibadan home, according to a 2021 PUNCH article.

He and his spouse, Ropo, were subsequently taken into custody in the Benin Republic on July 19, while traveling to Germany. That being said, in October 2023, he was liberated.

The liberation soldier just got back to Nigeria in time for his mother’s funeral.

Igboho said there was an attempt on his life when his Ibadan home was raided.

Yoruba Nation Agitation Not Security Threat – Igboho Replies Military

Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho has called on the Nigerian military to stop misleading Nigerians.
According to him, the agitation for the Yoruba Nation is not a security threat.
He was reacting to a remark credited to the Director of Defence Media Operations, Maj Gen Edward Buba, who listed the Yoruba self-determination movement as a threat to the peace in the South-West zone.
Buba, while addressing defence correspondents in Abuja on Friday on the activities of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, claimed that security threats in various geopolitical zones differ, pointing out that the major threat in the South-West remained the Yoruba Nation agitators.
But Igboho, in a statement he signed and made available to newsmen in Ibadan, Oyo State, said the Federal Government under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu should disregard such security report, which he described as blackmail.
“ we take exception to the wrong and baseless position of the Director of Defence Media Operations, Buba, for identifying the Yoruba Nation agitators as a major threat to the peace in the South-West.
“This is not only far from the truth but also a flimsy excuse, which showcased the failure of the military to tackle the menace of insecurity, which threatened the peace in Nigeria, most especially during the immediate past regime of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Apart from the ignoble and vicious attacks on some states in the North, most especially in the North-East, by the Boko Haram terrorists, fulani bandits were controlling some local governments in some parts of the North during Buhari’s administration, collecting levies and other forms of revenues unhindered. The military could not do anything tangible to stop this act of threat against the territorial integrity of the nation.”
He alleged that rather than eliminate terrorists, the military “is chasing shadows and wrongfully accusing Yoruba Nation movement of threat to peace in the South-West.”
“This is just a figment of their own imagination, which should be ignored by discerning Nigerians and other relevant stakeholders,” he said.

K1 De Ultimate Begs President Tinubu To Pardon Sunday Igboho

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.
