Sunday Igboho Speaks On Leading Amotekun
Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho says he is not interested in being the head of South-West Security Network codenamed Operation Amotekun.
Following his attempt to force herders out of Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State, the activist was rumoured to be interested in the Amotekun top job.
However, he told journalist Dele Momodu on Tuesday in an Instagram Live chat that he was only interested in driving killer Fulani out of Yorubaland.
He warned against the politicisation of his fight against kidnapping and killings by suspected Fulani in the South-West.
“I am not interested in becoming the head of Amotekun. I am not doing. I am not a hunter or a security expert. What kind of embarrassment is that (the offer)?
“Nobody should try to induce me with any position. That is not what I want. I am asking them (governors) to send all killer herdsmen out of our land. That is what I want,” he said.
Sunday Igboho also denied having any rift with the Aare ona kakanfo of Yorubaland Iba Gani Adams.
“He (Adams) is aware of our steps. We are updating him. You can see that he spoke in support of our struggle. He has vowed to resist any attack against us,” he said.
