Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Sunday Igboho has declared the ‘Yoruba Nation’, claiming that South-Western states are no longer a part of Nigeria.

He made the declaration on Wednesday evening during a conference in Ibadan, Oyo state.

According to him, it was high time for Yoruba to declare the race a sovereign nation.

Igboho urged all Yoruba indigenes who are resident in Hausa/Fulani or Igbo states, to return home before war breaks out.

He added that any Yoruba king that denied backing the movement to liberate the South-west will not ‘see the light of the next day.’

Although he spoke in Yoruba, the translation of his words goes thus:

“Why are we being slaves in our fatherland?

“Why are we being enslaved in our own land?

“The people that call themselves Senators& leaders will be going in traffic & see 4 & 5-year-olds selling popcorn & puff-puff & they will buy & eat, have you seen that they are not worthy to be called leaders, therefore we reject them as leaders,”.

“The Yorubas that are everywhere are larger than most countries, therefore we call on the global community and United Nations to come & separate us, we are no longer interested in being part of Nigeria before this becomes war, they need to intervene because we want to go.

“As it stands now, we are no longer under Nigeria. If they don’t intervene, it will go beyond control. We have gone beyond the point where we keep quiet, we are no longer scared to voice out.

“We are not safe anywhere, we can’t sleep in peace, we can’t travel in peace, what have we done? Are we slaves? We don’t do wrong by existing, we only chose the wrong leaders and we are saying enough is enough!

“Tincan in Lagos, Apapa, the directors are Fulani men. The two ports we have, the controllers are Fulanis. We don’t want them anymore!

“ Seme border, we don’t want Fulani there anymore! When Baba finish talking now, we the Yorubas here will have a crucial meeting, we are going to open the borders, let’s start allowing goods to enter!

“The borders that NIGERIAN Government closed, we are opening it all, we are no longer interested in being part of Nigeria! Whatever you want to do to us, we are ready! I’m talking to Yoruba indigenes! you can stand aside & say there is no unity among us, but touch a single Yoruba man, you will see that we are united.

“All our Kings are solidly behind us, any of them that want to deny it should make a press conference, let’s see. He won’t see the light of the next day! My advice to the Yorubas in the North is to find your way back home.

“Start coming home, it is time! We have suffered enough, let’s not fight among each other, let’s unite for a common cause, it is time to come home. That’s all I have to say”

  1. James Osaghae is a coward to these Fulani hegemony. Sunday Igboho( Adeyemo) is a true Yoruba leader not like adulterous Femi Fani – Kayode who kept on marrying wives.All genuine Yoruba people are behind you Chief Sunday Adeyemo ( Igboho). Enough is enough.

  2. James thunder will fire you for calling for his arrest. You Benin man. Continue to be the slave of the North. Listen to him very well. Niger Delta which is your region has oil controlled by the North. Seaport in Lagos controlled by the North. Oil in South East controlled by the North. Mineral resources in the North controlled by the North. You are there calling for his arrest. Your neck will be twisted by thunder. Ask the North how the special Yoruba female combat pilot TOLULOPE AROTILE was murdered. Open your mouth again and call for his arrest. Idiot.

  3. @ James osaghae, you’ve said it all, but you are wrong, what we need now is revolution, we are suffering in this country and our leaders are not bothered, if what sunday igboho is saying will give us solution, I am in support. let’s go our separate ways., why will I be living in my father’s land as a slave?

  4. Sunday Igboho should be arrested. This statement is a criminal act against the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He thinks he is above the law? He is too small. Many of us know that things are not going well for us because of the corrupt nature of our politicians, but it is not enough for any person out of selfishness to declare war.
    Igboho or whatever you call yourself, you will regret soon. You are just a beast.
