Yoruba no longer under Nigeria — Sunday Igboho Declares (Video)

Sunday Adeyemo, Popularly called Igboho has called on the Yoruba people living in other parts of the country to start returning home, declaring that the ethnic group was no longer under Nigeria.

The 48-year-old Yoruba freedom fighter also appealed to the global community and the United Nations to “come and separate us, we are no longer interested in being part of Nigeria before this becomes war”.

“They need to intervene, because we want to go,” he stressed, in the Yoruba language, in a video.


“As it stands now, we are no longer under Nigeria. If they don’t intervene, it will go beyond control. We have gone beyond the point where we keep quiet, we are no longer scared to voice out,” he said.

Igboho claimed that the Yorubas were slaves “in our fathers’ land”, saying “why are we being enslaved in our own land? The people that call themselves Senators and leaders will be going in traffic and see 4 and 5-year-olds selling popcorn and puff-puff and they will buy and eat, have you seen that they are not worthy to be called leaders, therefore we reject them as leaders.

He went on: “We are not safe anywhere, we can’t sleep in peace, we can’t travel in peace, what have we done? Are we slaves? We don’t do wrong by existing, we only chose wrong leaders and we are saying enough is enough! It’s tinker in Lagos, apapa, the directors are Fulani men.

“The two ports we have, the controllers are Fulanis we don’t want them anymore! Seme borders we don’t want Fulanis there anymore! When Baba finish talking now, we the Yorubas here will have a crucial meeting, we are going to open the borders, let’s start allowing goods to enter!

“The borders that NIGERIAN Government closed, we are opening it all, we are no longer interested in being part of Nigeria! Whatever you want to do to us, we are ready! I’m talking to Yoruba indigenes! You can stand aside & say there is no unity among us, but touch a single Yoruba man, you will see that we are united.

“All our Kings are solidly behind us, any of them that want to deny us should make a press conference, let’s see. He won’t see the light of the next day!

“My advice to the Yorubas in the North is to find your way back home. Start coming home, it is time!

“We have suffered enough, let’s not fight among each other, let’s unite for a common cause, it is time to come home. That’s all I have to say,” Igboho added.
