Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has blamed former President Muhammadu Buhari for his mother’s death.

The activist’s mother S. A. Adeyemo died in July 2023 while he was held by the Benin Republic government.

During his visit to the palace of the monarch of Igboho Town in Oyo State following his mother’s burial on Friday, Sunday Igboho said Buhari also caused the death of his sibling and friend.

“Buhari caused problems in my life, he killed my sibling, he killed my friend and he also killed my mother,” he said in Yoruba.

“He’ll die mysteriously with his children. Buhari is Fulani, it’s we Yoruba people that should be careful.”

He added, “Buhari sent his soldiers and DSS to arrest me in my house because I said Yorubas are not slaves to Fulanis, they can’t suppress us in our father’s land.

“Fulanis can’t stop our fathers and mothers from going to their farms. But, I’m back with the power of God and authority, not that of man.”

In 2020, the activist began a campaign to chase alleged killer herdsmen and kidnappers out of the south-west and also called on the Yoruba in the north, south-east and other parts of the country to return home.

He clashed with the Nigerian government in March 2021 when he declared the Yoruba Nation’s sovereignty.

In April, Nigerian forces invaded his home in Ibadan, arresting his men and accusing him of stockpiling arms.

The agitator fled Nigeria and was later arrested at the Cardinal Bernardin International Airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic while attempting to flee to Germany.

Buhari’s administration unsuccessfully attempted to repatriate him to Nigeria.

However, in October 2023, Sunday Igboho revealed that he was legally free to leave Cotonou. He then travelled to Germany.
