Yoruba nation freedom fighter, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, better known as ‘Sunday Igboho has said that as a country Nigerian cannot have peace with the situation of things in the country.
He decried widespread killings across the country due to growing insecurity under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Igboho, who spoke to Vanguard through his spokesperson, Mr Olayomi Koiki, at the weekend, insisted on the actualization of a Yoruba nation, urging the people of South-West to think of having their own independent nation to reclaim their rights.
He said: “We don’t think anyone should talk about the election with the insecurity in Yorubaland and the fake 1999 constitution. Yoruba should think of having our own independent nation and reclaim back our rights.
“We won’t force anyone that wants to vote in the 2023 elections just as we did not during the Osun and Ekiti. But we would continue to educate our people about the union of 1914 amalgamation that was forced on 371 ethnic groups in what’s called Nigeria today.
“Chief remains in high spirit and he continues to want a peaceful exit of the Yoruba people from Nigeria. Whatever Chief said is now happening in Yoruba land.
“With the situations of things, Nigeria can’t have peace. Why? We don’t have union and unity because we are all different.
“Having the Yoruba nation is a priority and won’t take the right of other indigenous people that want to live on our land so long as our constitution is respected.
“And I want to state again, Yoruba nation awareness campaign is coming soon again. We also looking forward to the next United Nations General Assembly for the next protest.
“Five million petitions have been completed. Our campaign remains peaceful according to the United Nations rights of the indigenous people.”
