The declaration of ‘Yoruba Nation’ by rights activist Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularly called Sunday Igboho has set many tongues wagging.

The Nation had reported how Sunday Igboho said he and those who believe in his cause will always defend the Yoruba race from aggressors.

In a video of the event that has gone viral as obtained by The Nation, Igboho said all the borders will be opened while lamenting that major institutions in the south-west are headed by people of Fulani origin.

Also, Igboho claimed Yoruba are united with traditional rulers backing them.

He also dared any traditional ruler against his own people to declare it publicly.

“The Yorubas that are everywhere are larger than most countries, therefore we call on the global community and United Nations to come & separate us.

“We are no longer interested in being part of Nigeria before this becomes war, they need to intervene because we want to go.

“As it stands now, we are no longer under Nigeria. If they don’t intervene, it will go beyond control. We have gone beyond the point where we keep quiet; we are no longer scared to voice out.

“We are not safe anywhere, we can’t sleep in peace, we can’t travel in peace, what have we done? Are we slaves? We don’t do wrong by existing, we only chose the wrong leaders and we are saying enough is enough!

“TIN CAN in Lagos, Apapa, the directors are Fulani men. The two ports we have, the controllers are Fulanis. We don’t want them anymore!”

“All our Kings are solidly behind us, any of them that want to deny it should make a press conference, let’s see. He won’t see the light of the next day! My advice to the Yorubas in the North is to find your way back home.

“Start coming home, it is time! We have suffered enough, let’s not fight among each other, let’s unite for a common cause, it is time to come home. That’s all I have to say”

The trending video has sparked outrage on social media, especially twitter and facebook.h

While many have called on the Federal Government to act fast before any crisis escalates, others showed solidarity with the declaration.

Former Kaduna Senator Shehu Sani said: “Some Champions of self determination are gradually rubbishing their causes with comical and hollow declarations that are not worth the value of the paper they were written on.”

@UNCLE_AJALA said: “Sunday Igboho may not be right about so many things, but he’s right about Buhari’s Nepotism and filling lucrative agencies in Nigeria with his Fulani cronies and Northerners.

John Fanimokun said: “Sunday Igboho is not speaking for us. He is a tool in d hands of some bitter old crooks that are desperately finding means to continue sharing our national treasure like they did under PDP. No sane Yoruba will embrace a criminal & some unresourceful old cargos as Leaders. Never!”

@Theladyfrances_ said: “I do not see the point of #OneNigeria if we are not going to progress as a country. We either start doing the needful now or we separate. Respect to men like Sunday igboho and Nnamdi kanu who took it upon themselves to agitate for the freedom of their people against tyranny”

@von_Bismack said: “The Sunday igboho’s sudden declarations have the markings,timing and undertones of the NADECO 1999. We are watching with keen interest though.”

Micheal Akanji said: “Sunday Igboho is just being overrated by his fellow hoodlums and few educated illiterate online and offline. Perhaps,

“I’m not surprised at the mutiny strategy of some Yoruba leaders. They are using vulnerable people to play deadly political games and we’re tired of DSS warning.”

Olufunke Lawson said: “If the DSS or any other security agency get to eventually arrest Sunday Igboho, which lawyer do you think would quickly jump to his defence”

Bhadmus Akeem said: “Yoruba Nation is not by mouth sha! Most of the people Sunday Igboho think are behind him will disenchant him when push comes to shove.

Onye Nkuzi, @cchukudebelu “The rise of people like Sunday Igboho was predictable – and many powerful people are “speaking through him”.”

Ifa Funsho said: “Despite how Buhari gov’t kept mute on insecurity. He closed borders that brings food to Yoruba land. Gumi & miyetti Allah are negotiating with terrorist. Fulani herdsmen are killing YORUBAs. If any Yoruba person is against sunday igboho that person must be enemy of Yoruba nation.”

Dr. Ben Gbenro said: “When you elevate people like Gani Adams to prominence,then you embolden the likes of Sunday Igboho to think of themselves as your mouthpiece. Iran Yoruba, se eri aiye yin lode? Our acclaimed education is useless.”

Injustice, Imbalance Were Introduced Into Nigeria’s Governance By Northerners – Amaechi

Mbazulike Amaechi, Nigeria’s First Republic Minister of Aviation, has accused the North of bringing inequity, inequality, and unfairness into the country’s governance.

The long military government led by Northerners, according to Amaechi, developed a lot of inequity and disparity in the country’s governance structure.

In a recent interview with journalists, the elder statesman claimed that the presidency can come from any part of the world.

He did, however, point out that Nigeria’s condition is not ideal since all of the country’s constituent units are not as they were formed by the founding fathers or inherited from the British administration.

According to Amaechi: “In an ideal situation, a President of Nigeria should come from any part of the federation but the Nigerian situation is not ideal because all the component units of Nigeria as presently constituted in the present-day Nigeria, which the founding fathers of the country created or inherited from the British administration, are not as they were created.

“The long military government led by the North introduced a lot of imbalance, injustice and unfairness.”

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday evening arrested a former governor of Imo State and senator representing Imo West senatorial district, Chief Rochas Okorocha, over alleged sleazes while he served as governor.

The former governor, it was learnt, was arrested in his Abuja residence by the operatives, who were said to have been on his trail for some time.

A source in the commission informed the Nigerian Tribune that the former governor was arrested following his failure to honour several invitations sent to him to report at the anti-graft agency’s headquarters in Abuja.

“EFCC resorted to his (Okorocha’s) arrest following his refusal to honour invitations sent to him. Many invitations were sent to him to report at the Abuja headquarters but he failed to do so. Before his arrest today (yesterday), our operatives have been on his trail for some days,” the source told Nigerian Tribune.

EFCC’s Head, Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Okorocha’s arrest to Nigerian Tribune, saying that, “it is true he was arrested today. He is with us now.”

As of the time of filing this report, the former governor was still being questioned by interrogators and it is uncertain if he would be granted administrative bail to go home.

Though Uwujaren did not reveal the reason behind his arrest, sources informed that the senator had been on the anti-corruption commission’s radar since he left office in May 2019 and in July 2019, it sealed off some properties linked to the former governor, his wife and daughters in Imo State.

Group Decries Extra-Judicial Killing Of Fulani

A coalition of Fulani youth groups has called on the federal and state governments to ensure a halt to what they described as “the extra-judicial killings of Fulani in the country” by those opposed to the existence of the race.

The coalition in a communiqué after a press conference, Tuesday, in Abuja said they would not sit and watch their people labeled as miscreants and killing them like fouls in their own country.

The coalition under the aegis of Fulbe Umminobe Sukabe Development Association of Nigeria (FUSADAN) dissociated themselves from the group that reached an agreement with state governors over the recent crisis in parts of the South west.

Speaking on behalf of the group, the leader of FUSADAN, Comrade Mohammad Ardo, said of all the tribes in Nigeria, non is as law abiding as the Fulani, insisting that the stock have benefited the least from the Nigerian government.

He said the Fulani nation is fed up with being described as criminals whenever security challenges occur in the country.

“Of all the tribes in Nigeria, none is as law abiding as the Fulani but the Fulani have not benefited in any way from the Nigerian government; no schools, no place to graze, no electricity, water etc. This accusation of criminality must stop.

“Miyetti Allah is a Fulani group but they are not delivering their responsibilities, which is why the Fulani youths have gathered themselves to take a stand because they are not delivering what we want.

“A meeting was held recently in the South-west where some Fulani organisation signed and accepted an agreement that grazing should be stopped. If it was a real Fulani organisation, they wouldn’t have accepted because if the government wants us to stop, they must provide certain things for the Fulani because we have had grazing reserves before independence.

“Fulani are fully Nigerians and they have the right to travel, live and graze anywhere in Nigeria as enshrined in the Constitution of the country. Any newspaper, magazine, journal or any other news channel that uses the name ‘Fulani’ to qualify any crime or criminal should be ready to meet our lawyers in court. We say emphatically that, enough is enough of these senseless killings of innocent Fulani and their herds across the South-West and South-east states of the country.”
