Yorubas must rise to the defense and the release of Sunday Igboho when arrested.
Yorubas cannot afford to make a sacrificial lamb of Sunday Igboho!
The Arrest of Yoruba Generalissimo Sunday igboho on the orders of General Buhari over the unregistered Fulani and Boko Haram eviction from Ibarapa / Oke Ogun of the Southwest has to be the last straw that breaks the Camel’s Back.
It is the one single act that can quickly pave the way to the break up of the Southwest from Nigeria
The Yorubas would write ourselves off as Bastards in Nigeria, if we do nothing to defend and free up our son, Sunday Igboho from being made a scape goat and a sacrificial lamb.
We must not allow him to be punished and tortured by the Fulani invaders of the Yoruba homeland for sticking out his neck to confront and to fight the invaders using black power.
The Yoruba Hero is risking his own life to protect ours and the lives of generation of our Yoruba sons and daughters yet unborn.
All our royal fathers starting with the Arole Oodua and the Alaafin of Oyo not to talk of distinguished Oodua sons like General Olusegun Obasanjo and General Alani Akinrinade and Professor Banji Akintoye and Ahmed Bola Tinubu to mention a few.
They must rise to the occasion and form a pressure group to demand the release of Sunday Igboho at the behest of the royal fathers I have mentioned.
They all must warn Buhari and his Government that no harm must befall Sunday Igboho while he is in their custody.
The Yorubas must show solidarity on the release and the safety and well-being of Sunday Igboho.
It is that simple.
I sense a fire on the Mountain for the Yorubas of the Southwest, If we don’t fight for ourselves, nobody is going to fight for us.
Since the Fulani Herdsmen posing as Boko Haram want to take over our territories by force and without our permission, we don’t want them in our backyard and Forests .
They must return to where they came from. If they don’t want to do so in peace they must be forced to leave to save our lands and properties and livestock and the lives of our people which are being endangered all over the place.
That has to be our bottom line.
