The Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Chief Gani Adams, has criticized the methods used by freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
It can be recalled that the activist was declared wanted after some of his men were arrested during a raid on his residence at Soka in Ibadan Oyo State on Thursday, July 1st in an attempt to arrest him.
Two people were killed and other abducted during the raid as the secret police vowed to track down and arrest Igboho.
SSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, at a press briefing confirmed that the officials were present at the activist’s house and alleged that illegal arms including seven AK-47 rifles and thousands of ammunition were recovered from the building.
Gani Adams while addressing a gathering said Igboho had employed more of propaganda in the struggle for self-determination.
He also faulted Igboho’s threat to forcefully reopen the borders, adding that claims that 1,000 policemen would not return if they invaded his house was uncalled for.
“I beg the Ooni of Ife, the Alake of Egba and all other Yoruba leaders. If a son offends his father, the father will forgive him. Let us unite to use another method for our liberation. We are not saying we should adopt Sunday Igboho’s method.
“Most of Sunday Igboho’s method are wrong. I told him that his methods are wrong. But God has used him on the agitation for Yoruba Nation. He has played his own role and he will still play more roles. We should not let him be killed or persecuted.
“As the Aare Onakakanfo, I am begging you. Assuming he and his followers had not insulted me before, you will say that is why I’m saying this. But a leader without the spirit of forgiveness is an enemy of God. I beg the governors too.
“Sunday Igboho should caution his talkative followers so that they won’t put him into trouble,” he said.
