Igboho, Akintoye Disown Storming Of Ibadan By Yoruba Agitators

Prominent leaders of the Yoruba Nation Movement, Chief Sunday Igboho and Professor Banji Akintoye, have washed their hands off Saturday’s invasion of the Oyo State Government secretariat Agodi, Ibadan the state capital.

Their denouncement follows some people presenting themselves as members of the Yoruba Nation movement’s invasion of the secretariat and the House of Assembly located inside the secretariat to hoist the flag of the movement.

Soldiers and cops curtailed the incursion of the men some of whom escaped arrest.

Some of those who were arrested were taken away while some arms and other dangerous weapons were taken from them.

Reacting to the incident, Igboho, speaking through his media aide, Olayemi Koiki, in a Facebook Live session, said: “I know nothing about it and I don’t know those behind it. If we want to organise a rally or any Yoruba Nation activity, we usually make an announcement beforehand,” he said.

“Any person that said he is agitating for Yoruba Nation and is going to attack government facilities, that person or group is on his own; I don’t know anything about it.”

Professor Akintoye,who also spoke through the same channel said, “I have spoken to Sunday Igboho. Some people sent them to make sure that they disrupt the Yoruba self-determination struggle.”

“I was informed a few minutes ago that some people who said they are followers of Onitiri have come to take over the government of Yorubaland, and that they have arrived in Ibadan. We in this struggle don’t act in that manner.”
