Oyo Secretariat Invasion: Sunday Igboho, Prof. Akintoye disown Yoruba Nation agitators

0 comment 2 minutes read

Yoruba Nation advoactes, Sunday Adeyemo, known as Sunday Igboho, and the former leader of Ilana Omo Oodua, Professor Banji Akintoye, have denied involvement in the invasion of the Oyo State Government Secretariat on Saturday.

This platform gathered that suspected Yoruba Nation agitators illegally gained access to the Oyo State Government Secretariat at the Agodi, Ibadan, the capital, and erected their flags.

The agitators were dispersed through the help of policemen from the State Command and army personnel from Division 2.

Commenting through his media assistant, Olayemi Koiki, in a Facebook Live, Igboho said he was unaware of the development, noting that all rallies are usually announced beforehand.

He furthered that those agitating at the secreteriat were not part of Yoruba Nation.

He said, “I know nothing about it, and I don’t know those behind it. If we want to organise a rally or any Yoruba Nation activity, we usually make an announcement beforehand.

“Any person that said he is agitating for Yoruba Nation and is going to attack government facilities, that person or group is on his own; I don’t know anything about it.”

Lending credibility to Igboho’s claims, Akintoye allegedly fingered another separatist leader, Abiola Onitiri, as the brain behind the incident in Oyo state.

He said, “I have spoken to Sunday Igboho. Some people sent them to make sure that they disrupted the Yoruba self-determination struggle.

“I was informed a few minutes ago that some people who said they are followers of Onitiri have come to take over the government of Yorubaland and that they have arrived in Ibadan. We in this struggle don’t act in that manner.”
