Prominent Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho, on Saturday denied that he was about to soft pedal or dialogue with the federal authorities.
EyewitnessMedia gathered that the spokesman of the activist, Olayomi Koiki, said there had been no contact between the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Adewale Akanbi and the agitator lately.
Reacting last night to Friday’s offer by the Oluwo to intervene in the face-off between government and Igboho, Koiki denied that Igboho was about to drop the agitation for a Yoruba nation.
Koiki, his spokesman, told newsmen yesterday that he was not aware of any contact lately between Oba Akanbi and Igboho.
“Not at any time, not even a single call,” he said.
But he admitted that Igboho visited the oba way back in 2018 to reciprocate a similar one by the traditional ruler to the activist.
He said it was on that occasion at the Oluwo’s palace that the photograph of Igboho prostrating for the oba, now trending on social media, was taken.
“The news that Chief Sunday Adeyemo visited the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi is not true,” he said.
“The 2018 picture was taken during a return visit after he (Oluwo) came to chief’s house.”
He insisted that Igboho has also not dropped his agitation for a Yoruba nation, stating that any claim to the contrary is a lie.
He promised to give a comprehensive response soon by way of an audio message.
