A popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho has denied ever having anything to do with a Special Adviser on Political Matters to President Muhammadu Buhari, Senator Babafemi Ojudu.
Ojudu, in a piece titled “The Sunday Igboho I knew” on his on his Facebook page on Monday, alleged Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) chieftains hired Igboho to disrupt the 2009 Rerun Governorship Election in Ekiti State.
He said he was able to win over Igboho after series of meetings.
But told reporters at his residence in Ibadan on Tuesday after a fire incident at one his buildings in the Soka area of Ibadan he had no dealing with Ojudu.
He said the presidential aide was a liar.
He said: “I have been hearing reports about a man called Femi Ojudu. I don’t know this man. He said the late Chief (Lamidi) Adedibu contracted me in 2009 and we all know that Adedibu died in 2008.
“I think the man should undergo a mental test because the late Chief Adedibu did not train me for any job and I was not close to the late Adedibu.
“I have a relationship with my father, Senator Rasheed Ladoja, and I have never betrayed him in the years I was his follower.
“I don’t know Femi Ojodu and I didn’t have any business with him. All what he said are lies.”
Igboho denied politicians were bankrolled him to issue and enforce a vacation order to the herdsmen in Igangan, Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State.
Igboho, who said he was moved by the sufferings of the people of the town, lamented that politicians have begun to politicise his intervention.
The activist said: “Politicians are now politicising the herdsmen issue to tarnish my image so as to weaken me.
“Any politician who knows he paid me money to do all that I am doing should come out openly before the whole world. I was not bankrolled by anyone. My paramount concern is for peace to reign in the land of my forefathers.”
