Igboho wants supporters to pause Yoruba Nation protest, rally for now – Lawyer

Embattled Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, has urged his supporters against holding demonstrations in his name “for the time being”, his counsel Yomi Aliyu has said.

Igboho, 48, is currently at Prison Civile de Cotonou — Cotonou Civil Prison.

Aliyu, in a statement on Thursday, said Igboho also asked his supporters to ignore any message to the contrary.

“There is time for everything. Chief Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a Igboho Oosa, is desirous of respecting those murdered in his house on that black 1st July, 2021,”the statement started.

“In that wise, he has advised against staging any demonstration or rally in his name for the time being. He will also like people to respect his family by not calling his mum out for anything public. Igboho for now has no authentic mouthpiece anywhere.

“In that wise, people are advised to take anything said by anybody claiming to be from him with a pinch of salt. The exception is the statement by his lead counsel.

“Let’s respect the dead. On no account should anybody attack any public place or security personnel on the pretence of agitating for Yoruba nation!”
