Yoruba activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has told his supporters to stop the staging of any form of demonstration or attack of security operatives in his name.
Igboho, who is in detention in Benin Republic, spoke via a statement issued on Thursday by his lawyer.
The statement, titled: “Warning Against Using Sunday Igboho’s Name Indiscriminately,” was signed and made available to journalists in Ibadan, Oyo State on Thursday by his lead counsel, Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN).
The statement read in part: “There is time for everything, Chief Sunday Adeyemo also known as Igboho Oosa, is desirous of respecting those murdered in his house on that black 1st July, 2021.In that wise, he has advised against staging any demonstration or rally in his name for the time being. He will also like people to respect his family by not calling his mom out for anything public.
“Igboho for now has no authentic mouth piece anywhere. In that wise, people are advised to take anything said by anybody, claiming to be from him with a pinch of salt. The exception is the statement by his lead counsel. Let’s respect the dead.
“On no account should anybody attack any public place or security personnel on the pretence of agitating for Yoruba Nation.”
