I’m nothing like Nnamdi Kanu — Sunday Igboho

Sunday Igboho Adeyemo

Activist Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho says he is nothing like the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.

He said their missions were not alike as the Yoruba people only want justice from killer herdsmen and good governance.

“I am not Kanu and I am not like Kanu. Kanu is working on his agenda; perhaps, he doesn’t carry his people along. This is about the Yoruba people being killed, raped, extorted, oppressed and dehumanised in their own land. What we want is justice, peace, harmony and good governance,” he told PUNCH in an interview published on Sunday.

The activist discredited reports that some Yoruba people in the diaspora had raised about N11million to support his cause.

“I don’t need such and there is nothing like that,” he said.

Sunday Igboho denied burning the property of the Seriki Fulani of Igangan in Ibarapa LGA of Oyo State when he visited the area to enforce a notice to quit.

He said: “Let me make myself clear to everyone on this today. On getting to Eruwa, I reported myself to the police area command and having explained our mission, the area commander chose to follow us. The A/C and his team followed us. On getting to Igangan, we met the police and men of Operation Burst. We went into the town and returned shortly after and reported ourselves to the Operation Burst team at the entrance of the town.

“The question is: Would the area commander have watched us go to Seriki’s house to set it on fire? Another question is: Could Operation Burst team have allowed us to go freely if we had such a record? There was nothing like that when we were in the town; so we didn’t do it. We learnt that it was an angry mob that went to do that.”
