Sunday Adeyemo, a Yoruba rights activist popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has said he and other Yoruba nationalists will kill politicians of Yoruba extraction who contest for the Presidency in 2023.
Igboho said Yoruba politicians should focus on delivering an independent Oduduwa Republic instead of campaigning for the 2023 general elections.
In a video that went viral on Sunday, Igboho insisted to traditional rulers and guests at an event that the priority of Yoruba politicians and elders should be identifying with the secessionist agenda of ensuring the Yoruba nation leaves Nigeria and actively work towards it rather than focusing on politics.
According to him, Yoruba political office holders are unfortunate for focusing on their political careers rather than the welfare of their people, noting that he and his comrades will shoot them to death before they (politicians) start campaigning for the elections, which is two years away from now.
He called on Yoruba traditional rulers and elders to support the secessionist agenda and the actualisation of the Oduduwa Republic.
The date of the video is, however, unknown.
He said: “If not that you (Yoruba political office holders) are all unfortunate representatives, you should be leading us in the secessionist struggle. You should know that you are not supposed to seek election to the office of the president. You bare supposed to identify with our agitation and lead us in the secession activities.
“I will not allow you to campaign because I will kill you all (Yoruba politicians) before campaign starts (in 2023), I swear by God. I swear by God, it is either they go elsewhere or we will shoot them with guns from the back.”
