The renowned socialite based in Ibadan, Chief Sunday Igboho who is the convener of Oduduwa Republic in Ibadan has berated some Yoruba leaders who betrayed the struggle to seccede from Nigeria.
Chief Sunday had sometime made it known that he would gather some youths and elders in Yorubaland for a rally seeking for the declaration of Oduduwa Republic come October 1st, the day Nigeria celebrated its 60th anniversary.
Meanwhile, the rallies that were carried out by Yorubas in diaspora suffered a setback in Nigeria due to the low turn-out across Nigeria.
According to Sunday Igboho, the rally which was to kickstart in Ibadan yesterday did not receive the people he expected to join the rally having agreed prior to the day of rally.
Igboho while addressing journalists yesterday at his residence said, he was very disappointed with some Yoruba elders who had sold their conscience in the struggle to liberate Yoruba race. He stated further that those he planned the struggle together left him to carry his cross alone.
“I am utterly bewildered that some Yoruba elders and youths cannot come out en masse to join us, as you can see the Federal Government has stationed security agencies in my residence. We said we want to liberate ourselves from slavery and some people in Yorubaland connived with the government to disrupt our plans”.
“I am totally disappointed with some of our people, we planned the struggle together and in the mid of the night they had sold their land for the sake of porridge. Meanwhile, if the security agencies did not allow us to go beyond our residence, we shall organze those who we see here and do our rally within our enclave to send signal to the whole world that in Oduduwa Republic we stand”, said Igboho.
