In a statement issued by his spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, the self-acclaimed freedom fighter said Yoruba Nation must be actualized so that they can enjoy more stable electricity like Benin Republic.
He said Nigeria as a country does not exist any longer for him as he believes the self-determination of the Yoruba nation will soon be achieved.
“I received a message from Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Igboho via his lawyer from Benin Republic lawyer Olusegun Falola that he stands on his belief, self-determination for the Yoruba Nation, because there’s nothing like Nigeria again for him.
“He believes as a Yoruba man and the indigenous person of the land that it’s time for Yorubas to stand on their own as a Nation.
“He said we should take a look at Benin Republic enjoying steady electricity supply. That’s what we desire in the Yoruba Nation we have been agitating for and we will get there very soon. He also reiterated that the Yoruba Nation is now; there is no going back.”
“He sends his greetings and appreciation to all the sons and daughters of Yoruba nation around the world, that you all have given him all the drive needed to stand his ground and he also reiterated that the Yoruba Nation Now; there is no going back.
”We must continue our peaceful awareness and campaign in accordance with the United Nation Charter, African Union Charter in seeking self-determination.
“Also towards the 1 million March coming up in New York at the United Nation 76th General Assembly organised by NINAS.”
Koiki said the activist asked him to thank major Yoruba leaders in the country who had shown one support or the other towards the activist in detention in the Benin Republic.
KanyiDaily recalls that Igboho is currently locked up in Benin Republic where he was charged to court for illegal migration, dubious connivance with immigration officers, and an attempt to cause civil unrest in the country.
