A Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has apologized to Ooni Ile Ife, King Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi for saying that Ooni had received money from President Muhammadu Buhari during a visit to Abuja.
Speaking on online Tv named Isokan Omo Yoruba, on Wednesday, Igboho reacts to the allegation that he was talking to Ooni of Ife, for collecting money from Buhari.
Igboho reacted: ” Am not talking to Ooni of Ife, I was only talking to Yoruba leaders who go to Aso Rock praising Buhari, so as to acquire a position or for money without talking about the Insecurity and other issue affecting the Southwest.”
“As much as the Fulani have committing so much crimes in Yorubaland, I speak enthusiastically, yorubas need to wake up from our slumber.
Also, I will never speak out against the Yoruba monarch,” Igboho explained.
Igboho said Ooni was not the one he was speaking about in the video.
He said all the last ones were concerning the fulani people that want to destroy our land and the work of our forefathers.
Meanwhile, Ooni Ile Ife Palace has reacted to the remarks made by the Yoruba activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, known as Sunday Adehomo King Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi.
In a statement obtained online, Igboho said Ooni had met him after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
A spokesman for Ooni, Moses Olafare, said Ooni was not opposed to what Igboho was doing.
He said Ooni actually visited President Buhari inA buja to address the ongoing conflict between farmers and Fulani pastoralists according to the king.
Ooni praised Igboho for what he was doing in Yoruba land because he was fought by people.
“The king cannot say that you, Yoruba people, let us go to war, no king can say such a thing, a king who does so violates the law of peace and the rule of law,” Olafare said.
Olafare explained that the Yoruba elders and governors had met before his visit to President Buhari.
Mr. Olafare’s eyes are wide open, the old man is not surprised, he explained that not all clothes are made to sleep.
“Ooni to Igboho, there is no greater honor than that,” Olafare explained.
Olafare, Ooni told Igboho to look back, but Ooni did not oppose what he was doing in Yoruba.
Olafare also added that Igboho should provide convincing evidence that Buhari paid Ooni.
