The Paramount Ruler of Iwoland, HIM Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has enjoined Yoruba monarchs, elders and stakeholders to meet President Muhammadu Buhari over the release of Sunday Adeyemo Igboho, self-acclaimed Yoruba Nation agitator.
This comes fater Igbo elders visited President Buhari and demanded the release of Nnamdi Kanu,
Oba Akanbi stated the release of Sunday Igboho will go a long way in strengthening the unity of Nigeria.
Oluwo appealed to Yoruba monarchs to harmonise their interest towards this objective.
He premised his argument on oneness of Nigeria and could be further cemented on release of Sunday Igboho and Knamdi Kanu.
The first class monarch enjoined Buhari to honour Yoruba kings and stakeholders, saying such will convince Yorubas home and abroad to respect the unity of Nigeria.
Oluwo urged the federal government to effectively relate with Benin Republic on bilateral ground and ensure Igboho is safely returned to Nigeria without further trial.
He said such action will encourage more patriots from Yoruba land.
A statement by Oluwo through his press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, reads: ” The controversies surrounding the continuous detention of Sunday Igboho can be addressed should the Yoruba Monarchs, elders and stakeholders ready to take a walk to President Muhammed Buhari. Sunday Igboho is our son, he has made some mistakes which are realizable on the agitation for Yoruba nation. The approach is jeopardizing the intention. I urge stakeholders in Yoruba affairs to harmonize their interest, come together and approach the country’s leaders for the release of embattled Igboho.”
“Granting such request will entrench the unity of Nigeria and foster an harmonious understanding. Only 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 a credit. It is a credit of maturity and unity.”
