Sunday Adeyemo, a popular Yoruba activist better known by his pseudonym Sunday Igboho, has extended a note of gratitude to prominent southwest leaders including monarchs and political statesmen.
Igboho, who spoke in a now-viral video, said he is indebted to people like Dele Momodu, former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode, former governor Ayodele Fayose and former president Olusegun Obasanjo for speaking up against his arrest.
Also, notable among those he mentioned in his appreciation remark are Chief Alao Akala (former Oyo state governor), renowned writer, poet and critic Professor Wole Soyinka.
Southwest kings he praised for their efforts are Alaafin of Oyo, Ooni of Ife, Olubadan of Ibadan, Ataoja of Osogbo, Soun of Ogbomosho, Alake of Egbaland, Awujale of Ijebu, Oba Akiolu of Lagos.
He also thanked the Yorubaland generalissimo Chief Gani Adams, saying he also spoke up. Igboho admonished his teeming followers not to disrespect any of the Yoruba leaders whose voice is not loudly heard.
"You are not aware, I swear to God and the Yoruba land. All of them (our silent leaders) are also displeased with the situation at hand.
"And they have now seen everything and spoken up, they won't accept such. See all the powerful people in Yoruba land who have cautioned President Buhari against arresting me."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Igboho dared the government of Oyo state to arrest him following his "leave" order to Fulani herders in Igangan community.
Igboho on Friday, January 22, stormed the town in Ibarapa East local government area of Oyo state after the expiration of his seven-day ultimatum to the Fulani herders mandating them to vacate the community.
Addressing the people of the community in a viral video, Igboho described Governor Seyi Makinde's directive that no one can be evicted from the state as a joke.
