Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho has issued a warning to Fulani terrorists in the six South-West states of Nigeria to leave before it is too late.
Mr Igboho issued the fresh notice in a statement issued on Wednesday by his spokesperson, Oluyomi Koiki, titled ‘You Cannot Take Over Yoruba Land Just As The Northern Part Of Nigeria Has Been Taken Over By Fulani Terrorists.’
He alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari has done nothing to stop killings by Fulani herdsmen.
Igboho said the activities of Fulani militias lately have made Yoruba people to regret being hospitable and generous.
He asserted that Yoruba people would break away from Nigeria and reclaim their sovereignty as they were before the British colonialism, stressing that it is their God-given right.
According to him, there is no going back on their quest for the self-determination of Yoruba Nation.
The statement reads in part; “I, Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho. I am a Yoruba Nation self determination activist. And Yoruba Nation must stand. No going back.
“President Muhammadu Buhari said yesterday that we Yoruba people are friends with the Hausa people. This is true, we are friends with Hausa; Igbo; Kanuri and all other ethnic groups.
“But we retain and maintain our Indegenous nationality that we were created by Almighty God. We have “Omoluabi” in our nature.
“This is why we have shown great hospitality to anyone that comes as a stranger to our Yoruba Land.
“The activities of the Fulani (Both Nigerian Fulani and most especially the foreign Fulani according to Federal Government of Nigeria) lately, had made us wanting to regret both our hospitality and generousity.
“The British that amalgamated Northern and Southern Nigeria together, knew we are not the same.
“We Yoruba are not fools, we know that Nigerian resources come mostly from Southern Nigeria. Yet the Southern Nigeria that are used and still being used to develop the Northern Nigeria are now being extended to their brothers in Niger Republic. Yet, the foreign terrorists from Niger Republic and the environs are sorrounding our forests, kidnapping; killing and wreaking havoc on Yoruba People.
“We know what the Fulani did to you Hausas.
“All the Emirs in the North are Fulani and all the Governors are Fulani as well. We know vividly how they systematically subdued and conquered the Hausas in their land. But let them know now, we are Yoruba. “Ije ti a je tete enikan o gbodo je dagunro”, no it is impossible and Fulani would soon realise that.
“This is why Yoruba Nation is no going back.
“We know we were not the same in regards to culture; history; beliefs and values and even our georgraphy. So must we rule over one another. Let everyone manage their own territory as created by God. Not the British creation Called Nigeria.
“The killings; maimings; loss of income and damage to Yoruba people’s landed properties. Enough is Enough. We know these killings are nothing to the Fulani but it means a lot to we Yoruba people. And that is why President Muhammadu Buhari had kept quiet on the Fulani killings. The President has done absolutely nothing to stop these killings.
“We know President Muhammadu Buhari is the Patron of all the Fulani worldwide. But Yoruba Land can never be conquered by Fulani.
“President Muhammadu Buhari was reminding Nnamdi Kanu and the Igbos of the massacre they carried out during the Biafra War. The President should know that this can never be repeated again in any of our Land.
“We have all woken up to Fulani Agenda.
“The Middle Belt people are also being killed. Everyone knows who is behind all these atrocities and President Muhammadu Buhari is their Life Patron.
“So, we Yoruba are pulling out and reclaiming our Sovereignty as we were before the British Colonialism.
“It is our God given right. And there is no going back on our quest for Yoruba Nation self determination.”
“I want to issue warning to all the terrorist Fulani (Home and foreign Fulani) in Yoruba forests to leave now before it is too late.
“When the ‘Alale Yoruba’ fully begins, most of you would not live to tell the story,” the statement added.
