Yoruba Nation: What Buhari told me about Sunday Igboho – Ooni

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has disclosed that after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, revealed what President Buhari say to him and he had advised Sunday Igboho over his then actions.

He said;

“I have always told the government to call the agitators for a dialogue. Sunday Igboho grew up in Ife. All that he has become today, started from Ife. He fought the Ife and Modakeke war and both lands belong to Ife. He is a son of the soil.

He wanted to fight for his kinsmen. He stood up and fought for those killed in Oke Ogun. We thank God for preserving his life. He tried his best but he was overwhelmed by different advice from people.

Many people advised him wrongly. He listened to them.

I visited President Buhari on his case and we discussed it. I told him that Igboho is our son, he told me that he (Igboho) should stay calm and exercise patience. The president told me that monarchs should warn him to be calm.

After I left Buhari’s place, I called on monarchs and elders of Yoruba land for a meeting to advise Igboho to exercise patience but Igboho did not listen. He started abusing everyone, including the monarchs I sent to him.

He hurled so many bad words but he is still our son. God owns forgiveness. We’ve forgiven him. If he had listened, he wouldn’t have found himself in his current travail.

We are trying our best to secure his release.

It is better to fight together. We can only achieve our goal if we are united.

No one can fight with the government alone? You’ve to be diplomatic.”
