Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, alias Sunday Igboho yesterday said he was back in the country to pursue killer herdsmen from Yorubaland.

Igboho, who went to Germany after he was released from a prison in Benin Republic where he was incarcerated at the instance of the Muhammadu Buhari led federal government on allegations of terrorism, returned to Nigeria last week.

He made the declaration while addressing a group of people during the burial of his mother at his hometown, Igboho area of Oyo State.

The activist who spoke in Yoruba, said the police and soldiers deployed to Yorubaland, especially in Ekiti State where monarchs were killed in broad daylight cannot combat the killers.

He said: “I want you all to stand with me so that we can liberate ourselves from the herders encroaching on our lands. Let us mount security in all the Yoruba lands ourselves, if not, they will take our lands.

“We don’t have to wait for the government or anyone. Let’s just work in unison. We cannot farm on our lands because of these herders.


“And our people are going hungry and angry. We don’t need the soldiers the government claims to have deployed to Ekiti State. We work following our elders and mount the places ourselves.

“It was my mother that was my fear before but now she’s gone, I have nothing to be scared of again. I am now back to take back our land.”

While refuting claims that he was working for politicians, Igboho queried if he could be working for politicians and if they would still want him dead.

He said: “I am not working for any politician. In fact, if I incidentally slapped someone, the government would be ready to arrest me and put me behind bars.

“I know they are watching me closely now to know my next action but I’m ready to take a step to stop these marauders’ activities in our lands.”
