Atoyebi told Legit.ng:
“As people who believe in humanity, I hope there will be a lasting solution to the crisis. If you believe in justice, you believe there will be a solution. The only thing that is required is justice.
“Yes, you have come to usurp their land, to take over their land, and they’ve agreed. Initially, they said ‘Why would you just impose people on us’? But along the line, they met in 1967 and had a resolution to have a two-state solution. So, you exist, we live together, and that could have been possible.
“And if that had been implemented, perhaps, this crisis wouldn’t have lasted (till 2023). So there is still a possible solution. We believe (in) freedom for Palestine one day.”
