The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has called on Yoruba monarchs, elders and stakeholders to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari and appeal for the release of Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
This is coming after the Igbo leaders recently visited Buhari demanding the release of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, and the president responded he will consider their demand.
In the news, Oba Aknabi, in statement signed by his Press Secretary, Alli Ibraheem, made available to newsmen on Sunday, said releasing Igboho will give credit to the government.
“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,” he said.
Recall that NewsBreak reported when the Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi, said the Yoruba monarchs summoned and cautioned Igboho but rained insults on them.
