Igboho: South-West govs under bondage, afraid to speak out – Lawyer

Olasupo Ojo, the coordinating counsel for the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly called Sunday Igboho, has accused some governors in South-West of being afraid to make their positions known on Igboho’s arrest and detention in Benin Republic.

Ojo, who commended Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for speaking up, cautioned South-West governors against opposing Yoruba Nation, saying those of them who failed to support self-determination would regret their action.

“I should commend Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for saying something. Many of the governors don’t know the value of the position they are holding. When people are clamouring and you pretend as if you don’t know, then something is wrong. A governor, who deafens his ears to the clamour of his people, will have himself to blame.

“They have not come out openly; they have their fears. They are under bondage. I pity the governors. They are in chains,“ he said.

Igboho’s coordinating counsel slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for supporting self-determination of Palestine, but ordering the arrest of Yoruba Nation agitators.

“Incidentally, it is on record that General Buhari also clamoured for self-determination of the northern people in the past. It is also on record that he is advocating self-determination of Palestine. He is not opposed to those, but when it comes to the Yoruba Nation, you say unity is non-negotiable. Is it everything that is non-negotiable in life? You cannot force two people to remain together,” Ojo added.
