Yoruba monarchs, elders must talk to Buhari on Igboho’s release – Oluwo

Oluwo Of Iwo Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi

The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi has enjoined Yoruba monarchs, elders, and stakeholders to engage President Muhammadu Buhari on the need to release the embattled Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho.

In a statement made available to newsmen by Alli Ibraheem, his Chief Press Secretary, on Sunday, Oba Akanbi also stated that the release of Sunday Igboho would go a long way in strengthening the unity of Nigeria.

Oluwo, who appealed to Yoruba monarchs to harmonize their interest towards the release of Igboho, premised his argument on Nigeria’s unity.

He added that the country’s oneness could be further cemented by the release of the duo of Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu.

While enjoining President Buhari to honour Yoruba kings and stakeholders, the monarch hinted that such a gesture will aid in convincing Yorubas in the diaspora to respect Nigeria’s unity.

He urged the Federal Government, to as a matter of urgency, relate with the Benin Republic on the bilateral ground and ensure Igboho is safely returned to Nigeria without having to necessarily go through a trial.

While admonishing Nigerians to continuously exhibit love, maturity, and loyalty capable of sustaining the unity of Nigeria, he maintained that such actions will encourage more patriots from Yoruba land.

Recall that a delegation from Eastern Nigeria last week paid a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari where they persuaded him to make the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra a priority.
