Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, says he is ready to face and chase out killer herdsmen from Yorubaland.

The Yoruba nation activist said this in a video that went viral on Tuesday where he was seen addressing some people who were cheering him following the burial of his mother in his hometown, Igboho area of Oyo State.

Sunday Igboho who spoke in Yoruba, said that the Federal Government of Nigeria and the soldiers deployed to Yorubaland, especially to Ekiti where monarchs were killed in broad daylight cannot combat the supposed killers.

He said, “I want you all to stand with me so that we can liberate ourselves from the herders encroaching on our lands. Let us mount security in all the Yoruba lands ourselves, if not, they will take our lands.

“We don’t have to wait for the government or anyone. Let’s just work in unison. We cannot farm on our lands because of these herders. And our people are going hungry and angry. We don’t need the soldiers the government claims to have deployed to Ekiti State. We work in accordance with our elders and mount the places ourselves.

“It was my mother that was my fear before but now she’s gone, I have nothing to be scared of again. I am now back to take back our land.”

The Ibadan-based activist faulted the rumour about him working for politicians, and queried if he could be working for politicians and be alive.

“I am not working for any politician. In fact, if I incidentally slapped someone, the government would be ready to arrest me and put me behind bars. I know they are watching me closely now to know my next action but I’m ready to take a step to stop these marauders’ activities in our lands,” he maintained.

Recall that Adeyemo had in 2021 escaped from a deadly night raid on his Ibadan residence by the operatives of the Department of State Service, (DSS).

Subsequently, he was arrested in Benin Republic on his way to Germany on 19 July together with his wife, Ropo. Although, he was released in October 2023.

Recently, the freedom fighter returned to Nigeria, ahead of his mother’s burial.

Igboho claimed that the raid on his Ibadan residence was an attempt to assassinate him.
