Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, a well-known Yoruba activist, has appealed to the international community to assist to give Yoruba their own country.
In a video posted on Twitter by former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, he said this while speaking at a conference in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, on Wednesday.
Sunday Igboho urged Yorubas in the northwestern part of Nigeria to return home as soon as possible, threatening that any Yoruba king who refuses to help the campaign to liberate the south-west will not live to see the next day.

“Why are we enslaved in our own land, why are we slaves in our fathers’ land?” “The people who call themselves Senators and representatives will be traveling in traffic and see 4 and 5-year-olds selling popcorn and puff-puff, and they will buy and eat,” Sunday Igboho said.
“Since the Yorubas are larger than other countries, we call on the international community and the United Nations to step in and divide us; we are no longer interested in becoming a part of Nigeria until this turns into a war; they must intervene because we want to leave.

“As of now, we are no longer under Nigerian control. It will escalate out of control if they do not interfere. We have progressed past the stage where we remain silent; we are no longer afraid to speak up.
“We are not safe anywhere; we can’t sleep or travel in peace, so what have we done?” Are we serfs or masters? We didn’t do anything wrong by existing; we just chose the wrong leaders, and we’ve had enough!
“The directors of Tincan in Lagos, Apapa, are Fulani guys. The controllers on the two ports we have are Fulanis, and we no longer want them! We don’t want Fulanis near the Seme border any longer! We the Yorubas here will have a critical meeting after Baba finishes speaking; we will open the borders and begin allowing products to enter.
“We are reopening all of the borders that the Nigerian government closed; we are no longer interested in being a part of Nigeria!” We’re ready for whatever you want to throw at us! I’m speaking with Yoruba people! You may stand back and claim that there is no unity among us, but if you touch a single Yoruba man, you will notice that we are all one.
“All of our Kings are firmly behind us; anybody who wants to refute it should have a press conference, and we’ll see what happens.” He won’t live to see the next day! To the Yorubas in the north, my advice is to find your way back home.
“Start going home; the time has come! We’ve had enough suffering; let’s not fight between ourselves; let’s unite for a common cause; it’s time to return home. That’s all I have to say on the subject.” – Sunday, March 17th, 2021, Ibadan, Igboho.”
