The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II, has opened up on his discussion with President Muhammadu Buhari over Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

In an interview with BBC, he said that Igboho rejected advice offered him by monarchs sent to dialogue with him.

Ooni narrated that he met Buhari over the Sunday Igboho situation on Sunday.

During the meeting, Buhari was informed of the reasons for Igboho’s agitation, according to the monarch.

In his reaction, Buhari was said to have said Igboho needs to be “calm and patient”.

The president also asked monarchs in the South-West advise Igboho against moves that are lawless.

The monarch, who said Igboho has a just cause to fight, said he should have been more diplomatic.

He alleged that Igboho was misled by politicians, insisting that the activist deserved the support of monarchs in the region.

On his part, Ooni said he had forgiven Igboho and already working to get him freed from detention in Benin Republic.

He urged other Yoruba Nation agitators to consider dialogue.

He said, “I have always told the government to call the agitators for a dialogue. Sunday Igboho grew up in Ife. All that he has become today, started from Ife. He fought the Ife and Modakeke war and both lands belong to Ife. He is a son of the soil He wanted to fight for his kinsmen. He stood up and fought for those killed in Oke Ogun. We thank God for preserving his life. He tried his best but he was overwhelmed by different advice from people.

“Many people advised him wrongly. He listened to them.

“I visited President Buhari on his case and we discussed it. I told him that Igboho is our son, he told me that he (Igboho) should stay calm and exercise patience. The president told me that monarchs should warn him to be calm.
After I left Buhari’s place, I called on monarchs and elders of Yoruba land for a meeting to advise Igboho to exercise patience but Igboho did not listen. He started abusing everyone, including the monarchs I sent to him.

“He hurled so many bad words but he is still our son. God owns forgiveness. We’ve forgiven him. If he had listened, he wouldn’t have found himself in his current travail.

“We are trying our best to secure his release.

“It is better to fight together. We can only achieve our goal if we are united.

“No one can fight with the government alone? You’ve to be diplomatic.”

Why do Yoruba monarchs that are invited to Aso Rock by Northern leaders start speaking in tongues when they come back? The North are relentlessly defending their own that are guilty as charged while our leaders from South are fond  of blaming their own just to please the North. Who doesn't know now that Northerners are potentially terrorists with killings going on and no condemnations from the North.  ABBA Kyari's case is almost being forgotten. All they talk about now are NNAMDI KANU and Sunday Igboho.
