The founder of One Love Family, Sat Guru Maharaj Ji, has highlighted the differences between Yoruba activist Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB.
During an interview with SaharaReporters, Maharaj Ji, who described himself as the spiritual father of Igboho, said the activist could not be compared to Kanu, whom he accused of asking people to fight.
He further explained that security operatives did not arrest Igboho at his residence. Maharaj Ji also accused Kanu of encouraging his followers to foment trouble through his radio broadcast. According to Maharaj Ji, the activist stopped the Killings in Ibarapa.
You will recall that Ọba Abdul-Rasheed Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwo, has revealed the reason for the silence of the Yoruba Monarchs in the face of Igboho’s ordeals.
Oluwo said he had abused some respected traditional rulers that could easily defend him against external attacks.
EveryEvery.ng reported that Oluwo, who explained the reasons for the silence of Yoruba Monarchs over the raid of his residence in Ibadan, said many of the Kings were in support of the Yoruba activist’s agitation against the killer herdsmen.
However, the Monarch noted that he ignored some of the warnings issued by the Yoruba Kings, adding that they cautioned him about the manner he was agitating for the Yoruba Nation, but he failed to adjust.
According to Oluwo, the activist and other agitators of the Yoruba Nation did not consult adequately with Yoruba monarchs. He opined that the fight for the Yoruba Nation could not be productive without the inputs of the traditional rulers.
Meanwhile, the Monarch stated that the federal government could not fold its hands and allow anyone to repeat what happened during EndSARS. He stressed the need for negotiation and dialogue in the face of making demands from the government.
