Sunday Igboho News

Agbekoya farmers society of Nigeria has disclosed that it will deploy magical power to free detained Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, (popularly referred to as ) if the government of Benin Republic continue to hold him illegally.

The association’s President, Chief Kamorudeen Okikiola, said Igoho is not a criminal, but a freedom fighter who is being held illegally due to the Nigerian government’s influence on the Benin Republic during a peaceful rally on “State of the Nation” in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State, on Thursday.

“Sunday Igboho is not a criminal, and we know he is being held illegally; therefore, we demand that he be released through legal means; if they refuse, we will use our magical power to free him.” “I repeat, we Agbekoya will free him from detention in the Benin Republic and return him to his homeland,” he stated.

On the socioeconomic situation in Nigeria, Okikiola called for a reversal of the 1960 constitution or a restructure of the country before the 2023 general elections, claiming that without such action, the country will not progress, regardless of who is elected president.

He lamented the recent surge in insecurity across the country, warning of the dire consequences of politicians taking the people for granted.

“It is critical that we return to the 1960 constitution, so that the various regions can enjoy good governance without having to compete for the presidency.” And, if that proves impossible, we should restructure the country to ensure adequate security for people and property.

“The Federal Government may decide to hold the election without listening to Nigerians’ desires for restructuring, but we believe that whoever is elected will be unable to accomplish anything under the current constitutional arrangement.”

“It’s also important to note that politicians should stop taking Nigerians for granted, because the consequences will be far too great in the long run for the country to be reunited,” he added.

Traditional rulers should have a constitutional role, according to Okikiola, in order to reduce insecurity in rural areas.

Members of Agbekoya from across the Southwest states attended the rally, which featured banners reading “free Sunday Igboho,” “Southwest Governors should rise and save Yorubaland from invasion of bandits, kidnappers, ritualists, rapists, and others,” and “Bandits now have colony within our country,” among other things.
