An old video of South-West secessionist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, saying he has been a member of the Peoples Democratic Party since 1999 has gone viral on social media.
In the video posted by ‘Express News’ which was recorded at a rally organised by Musa Wada, the Kogi State governorship candidate of the PDP in 2019, Igboho is seen boasting about his membership of the PDP.
Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, and Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, are also seen at the rally.
Responding to a question from a journalist, Igboho says, “I am Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho. I am a PDP member, confirmed, since 1999. I came here (Kogi rally) because of my father, Wada, because I know that by the grace of God, he is the one that will win the governorship of Kogi State.”
He also took a jibe at Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, calling him ‘yeye’ Bello.
Yeye, in Pidgin English, means an unserious person or a joker.
“Yeye Bello is already gone. Look at this state. The man has done nothing in the state. He doesn’t pay workers salary. It is not good. Yahaya is a very small guy but he didn’t do anything. Peoples expect him to do more than that but he hasn’t done anything. That is why we want Wada to hijack the government from him. Kogi youths should support him so that yeye.”
Igboho, who now says he is a Yoruba activist, recently started a crusade to expel Fulani herdsmen from South-West states due to the wanton killings.
On Thursday he declared that the South-West had seceded from the nation.
Earlier, the self-styled Yoruba warrior threatened to go after politicians of Yoruba extraction who are already campaigning ahead of the 2023 general election.
Speaking in a video, Igboho said, “Instead of Yoruba politicians to be leading the secession struggle, they are campaigning for the next presidential election. You should know that you are not supposed to seek election to the office of the President, you should identify with our agitation and lead us in the secession struggle.
“I will not allow you to campaign because I will kill you all (Yoruba politicians) before (2023) campaigns. I swear to God, we will shoot them with guns from the back.”
