Yoruba Nation freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, has issued a word of caution to his followers and sympathizers not to hold a protest or rally in his name.
The lead counsel of Sunday Igboho, Yomi Alliyu issued a statement in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Alliyu revealed that he has received instructions from Igboho and he thus instructed him to make sure there is no protest because of his incarceration.
The statement reads: “There is time for everything, Chief Sunday Adeyemo also known as Igboho Oosa, is desirous of respecting those murdered in his house on that black 1st July, 2021. In that wise, he has advised against staging any demonstration or rally in his name for the time being. He will also like people to respect his family by not calling his mum out for anything public.
“Igboho, for now, has no authentic mouthpiece anywhere. In that wise, people are advised to take anything said by anybody, claiming to be from him with a pinch of salt. The exception is the statement by his lead counsel. Let’s respect the dead.
“On no account should anybody attack any public place or security personnel on the pretense of agitating for the Yoruba Nation.”
Meanwhile, an Oyo State High Court has ordered the Federal Government of Nigeria to pay a whopping N20 billion to Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho.
During the sitting, the court was expected to give a ruling on the N500 billion fundamental human rights case instituted by Sunday Igboho against the Nigerian Government and Department of State Services (DSS).
The counsel for Igboho, Yomi Alliyu had earlier filed a suit challenging how the DSS invaded Igboho’s house in Ibadan on July 1.
The suit was asking the court to declare that action of the DSS operatives as illegal and infringed on Igboho’s fundamental human rights.
