Saturday's attack on the Soka, Ibadan home of Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, was condemned by the Agbekoya Farmers' Society of Nigeria.
Whoever was behind the attack, the organization said, should stop because its members would not hesitate to confront Igboho's foes because any attack on him would be seen as an attack on the Yoruba people.
Dr Adegbenro Ogunlana, the Secretary-General of Agbekoya, stated this in an interview with our correspondent on Sunday.
Ogunlana stated, "We will not hesitate to fight against whosoever is fighting against Chief Sunday Igboho, because he is a freedom fighter and he is fighting for the Yoruba race.”
On Friday, Agbekoya urged for the release of Igboho, who has been held in detention in the Benin Republic since July 19, 2021, when he was apprehended while traveling to Germany.
Agbekoya's President-General, Kamorudeen Okikiola, reaffirmed the group's warning to employ traditional means to free Igboho if the Benin Republic failed to release him.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
