Yoruba monarchs, elders must meet Buhari over Igboho’s release – Oluwo

The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi has called on Yoruba monarchs, elders and stakeholders to engage President Muhammadu Buhari on the need to release the embattled Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho.

In a statement Alli Ibraheem, his Chief Press Secretary, on Sunday, Oba Akanbi also stated that the release of Sunday Igboho would go a long way in strengthening the unity of Nigeria.

He added that the country’s oneness could be further cemented by the release of the duo of Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu.

While enjoining President Buhari to honour Yoruba kings and stakeholders, the monarch hinted that such a gesture will aid in convincing Yorubas in the diaspora to respect Nigeria’s unity.

He urged the Federal Government, to as a matter of urgency, relate with Benin Republic on bilateral ground and ensure Igboho is safely returned to Nigeria without having to necessarily go through a trial.

His call comes days after a delegation from Eastern Nigeria paid a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari where they persuaded him to make the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra a priority.

President Buhari subsequently disclosed that he would consider the proposal, which he described as a ‘difficult one’.
