Sunday Adeyemo, a Yoruba activist also known as Sunday Igboho, has said South West governors, except Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, are afraid of speaking up against the herdsmen crisis in the region.
He said this in a short video circulated on social media on Sunday.
“Even our monarchs are now involved, the Ooni, Alaafin, Awujale and others are all behind us. The governors are also in support but are afraid of speaking up. The Bible says, ‘there is nothing i shall fear, fear is not in my heart’. The only one who has spoken publicly of his support is Akeredolu of Ondo State,” he said.
Sunday Igboho also said Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, is in support of his action. He added that although Fayose confessed being close to people in government, he will place Yoruba people above his relationship with them.
He also said Feni Fani-Kayode said something similar.
“Fayose said he will go anywhere Yorubas go. He said he is not a bastard and will do as all Yorubas do. He said although he is a politician, he won’t betray his people.
“Femi Fani-Kayode also said same, he swore to me to do our bidding. He said he would not watch Yorubas suffer,” he added.
