Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, on Thursday said the Yoruba can achieve self-determination without firing a bullet.
He called on his supporters to embrace peace and dialogue in their quest for self-determination.
Igboho, in a statement issued on his behalf, by his Counsel, Chief Yomi Alliyu, on Thursday in Ibadan, implored all his supporters, especially his kinsmen at home and in the Diaspora to embrace dialogue in their quest for self-determination without heating up the fragile situation in Nigeria.
The activist said that he would continue to preach against war, considering what was happening in Ukraine and some parts of Igboland in Nigeria.
He expressed his believes that their ambition for self-determination could be achieved without firing a bullet.
Igboho then, assured all those in support of peaceful self-determination, through referendum, that the struggle continues, adding that he would not relent in his efforts in that regard.
He thanked all his supporters, especially his leaders, Prof. Banji Akintoye and Prof. Wale Adeniran and all Nigerians, especially his people in Ilana Oodua and affiliates, seeking self-determination.
Igboho, also thanked the President of Republic of Benin, Patrice Talon, for releasing him from prison with a view to uniting him with members of his immediate family in spite of the fact that he would only stay in Cotonou for the time being.
The activist also appreciated Chief Dele Momodu for visiting him in Cotonou Prison.
He pledged his loyalty and respect to his Counsel, Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN), who according to him, though, an extreme Buharist is a nationalist, who does not believe in balkanisation of Nigeria.
Igboho also lauded Alliyu’s efforts in “exhibiting extreme professionalism in taken up my case with DSS without paying a kobo and for winning it with landmark award of N20.5 billion
