SatGuru Maharaj Ji, leader of One Love Family, has said Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, won his heart after stopping the activities of killer herdsmen in Ibarapa area of Oyo State.
Igboho, who has been clamouring for Oodua Republic, was declared wanted by the Nigerian government after the Department of State Services (DSS), carried out a raid on his house in the Soka area of Ibadan last week Thursday.
Though Igboho escaped arrest during the raid, the DSS killed two of his aides and arrested 13 others.
Speaking in an interview with SaharaReporters, SatGuru Maharaj Ji denied reports that Igboho was arrested in his own residence.
“Somebody living in Soka, they found him in Maharaj’s place, it’s not true. That day, I wasn’t even there”, he said.
“As a spiritual father of all creation, everybody comes to Maharaj but on that fateful day, I wasn’t there. I wasn’t in Maharaj place, that’s part of the insinuation being carried about by the same set of people who came to drop a dead body here, they are everywhere telling lies about Maharaj.
“I saw him (Igboho) around two or three months ago, I am the spiritual father of all universe. Maharaj nation is the kingdom of heaven on earth. The relationship between me and him is not different from that of a father in creation who gave birth to a son. “But I haven’t seen him for the past three months, I read about him and I feel so good about what he did in Ibarapa”.
On the invasion of Igboho’s residence, he stated:
“You can’t gang anybody, the government of Nigeria should love Nigeria, they should recognise and respect the people of Nigeria as the most important aspect of Nigeria’s survival and success. So freedom of expression should be allowed.
“Everybody has right to present themselves, you can’t compare Ighoho with Nnamdi Kanu who has a radio station telling the people to fight and fight, even though we can’t be sure it is the Kanu’s boys who go about burning down police stations everywhere for any reason or so ever.
“Sunday Igboho stopped the killings going on in Ibarapa, that was how he won my love. I supported him in that area, he stopped those doing evil.”
