Supporters of activist Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho have donated £31,675 (N16.5m) just three days after setting up a Gofundme page to raise £100,000 (N51.8m) for him to buy buses to implement his project of ridding the south-west of killer herdsmen.
Initiated by a UK-based blogger and activist Maureen Badejo, the fundraiser had nearly 1,000 donors as of press time.
Kehinde Akinboyewa who donated £250, said, “No cause can be more just than this battle for the soul of the Yoruba Nation. Strong message to the Fulani terrorists and their enablers in high places, that though we’re thousands of miles away from home, we’ll stand shoulder to shoulder with our brothers and sisters in Yoruba land. The push back has begun in earnest; wanting to live in peace in your own home can’t be asking for too much!”
A £20 donor Fatai Kazeem said, “It is a just cause for all the Yoruba (people) home and abroad. Enough is enough. Our land must be safe for all again.”
Meanwhile, Sunday Igboho in an interview with PUNCH denied the existence of the fundraiser, adding that he did not need it.
“I don’t need such and there is nothing like that,” he said.
