Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has sent a new year message to president Buhari ahead of 2022.
The Yoruba Nation Activist new year’s message was signed by a lawyer Pelumi Olajengbesi.
The message, which was titled, ‘Sunday Igboho’s New Year message for 2022’, has requested that President Muhammadu Buhari end the killings, kidnappings and sundry crimes in the South-West zone of the country in 2022.
The 49-year-old said that he is not at war with anybody in the Government, as he only wants the best for his people.
He recalled that the genesis of his agitation with the Government was the insecurity in Ibarapaland and the entire Yorubaland, where farmers were Kidnapped, maimed, hacked to death, and raped as if there were no security agents in the country.
Sunday Igboho – I am not at war
Igboho noted that everyone living in the country deserves to be protected regardless of their religion, tribe or political affiliations.
He said that people became helpless with fear of going to their farmlands because many farmers were butchered to death in 2021, while the Government failed to act.
He reiterated that he did not speak up to fight the Government but to ensure this insecurity must stop and the people must be protected.
Sunday Igboho also added that he is more concerned about the helpless killings of citizens, and he is not selfish while praying to Almighty God to help stop the Killings of innocent people in Nigeria.
“My message is that in 2022, the Government should rise and put an end to the havoc caused by herdsmen that are criminals and give everyone a sense of belonging – whether foreign or locals — and stop the attack of our people in Yorubaland,” he read.
Igboho has been remanded in detention in Benin Republic since he was arrested alongside his wife on July 19, 2021, at the Airport in Cotonou after an attack on his Oyo State home by the Department of State Services on July 1, 2021.
His Ibadan residence was attacked in a Gestapo style, with two of his associates killed and 12 others arrested.
After about three weeks underground, Igboho found his way to Cotonou and planned to escape to Germany through an Air France Cotonou-Paris-Hamburg flight, but the trip was botched as the Interpol at the airport arrested him and his wife.
