A Yoruba monarch, the Olowu Of Owu-Kuta, Makama Oyelude, in a recent statement has urged Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, to surrender himself and drop the agitation for the Yoruba Nation.
Recall that the Department for State Service DSS had a few days ago declared Igboho wanted.
The monarch disclosed that no one can fight the federal might and win as he declared agitations for succession in the Southern part of the country as “dead on arrival.”
In a report via Daily Post, the monarch said, “
“I am not part of agitations for secession by separatists and unpatriotic Nigerians and I can’t be part of it. Even though Nigerians doesn’t favour all, we shouldn’t secede. Without consultations, you cannot be talking of secession and that’s why even the Obas are not discussing it.
“They (agitators) will find it difficult from seceding because it’s dead on arrival. Federal Government is the father of the nation and the separatist movement is not a cheap struggle; It is like you are waging arms against the State. Suffering, hardship and internal bickerings will greet regions that secede.”
”Nobody dare face the Federal might and succeed. I will advise the agitators to dialogue with the Federal Government. They have had ample opportunity to do so now when it’s ripe. Sunday Igboho can give himself voluntarily to the Federal Government rather than they go fishing him out like Nnamdi Kanu. There is no place for him to hide,” the monarch declared.
Oba Oyelude said he would instead support calls for restructuring than succession.
