The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has urged monarchs, elders and stakeholders in Yorubaland to meet with the president, Mohammadu Buhari to negotiate the release of the Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
Oba Akanbi, said this in a statement signed by his press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, on Sunday saying Igboho’s release would strengthen the unity of the country.
The statement read in part, “The controversies surrounding the continuous detention of Sunday Igboho can be addressed if the Yoruba Monarchs, elders and stakeholders ready to take a walk to President Muhammed Buhari.
“Sunday Igboho is our son. I urge stakeholders in Yoruba affairs to harmonize their interests, come together and approach the country’s leaders for the release of the embattled Igboho.
“Granting such a request will entrench the unity of Nigeria and foster a harmonious understanding. Only the federal government has the exclusive charisma to liberate the face of Yoruba nation agitator at this critical time. Our son must be rescued. Releasing Igboho without recourse to legal lingering litigation will earn the government credit. It is a credit of maturity and unity.”
