Following Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest by the Federal Government, Sunday Igboho appear to have backpedaled on secessionist plans.
Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has declared that he does not have the authority to battle the Nigerian government, according to NG Times Online News.
Only God, according to Igboho, a pro-secessionist leader, has the strength to fight the battle for separation from Nigeria. His remarks come shortly after IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu was arrested.
Igboho said; “Those abroad are the ones contributing the money we use in buying vehicles and do other things. How many can I do? Sunday Igboho is not the only powerful person. There are many powerful persons everywhere, unless we want to deceive ourselves. I can’t do it all alone. We must all unite. But someone must lead first. Moses was chosen to librate the Israelites before others join him. God will fight for us.”
“I don’t have the power to fight the Federal Government. In fact, I can’t fight an ordinary Local Government Chairman. But the battle is the Lord’s. God who is the head of the battle will fight for us. Our own generation will emancipate the Yoruba race from slavery.”
“To all Yorubas, come out on July 3 for the peaceful rally. We should not fight. We only want to tell Buhari that all we want is Yoruba Nation. Nobody should threaten us with death. You cannot kill us. There is no live champion, but current champion,”.
He, however confirmed that the planned mega rally for the agitation of Yoruba nation will still hold on July 3rd.
