The agitator for the Yoruba people, Sunday Igboho, reassured his supporters that the movement to actualize the Oodua Republic was still on track, emphasizing that he has not given up on the agitation.
Igboho emphasized that the moment for the Yoruba country has come and that he will soon be returning to Nigeria.
The self-described freedom fighter left Nigeria for Cotonou, Benin Republic, around 15 months ago when the Department of State Services (DSS) broke into his home.
But the freedom fighter resolved to see to it that Yoruba nation was actually realized.
At Bishop Ajayi Crowther’s annual posthumous birthday celebration in Ibadan, Oyo State, Igboho offered the guarantee.
Speaking via zoom platform, Igboho said: “I thank you all for your support since the inception of this just cause, and by God’s grace, the Fulani’s herdsmen activities against our people will end in our land. The Yoruba nation will soon be achieved and it will be better than all the nations in the world.
“My message to Yoruba people worldwide, who are passionate about the country of their own is not to lose hope. I am more than convinced that we are on our way to freedom. Our agitation is an idea whose time has come. I will come back to Yorubaland soon.”
