Chief Sunday Adeyemo, a Yoruba activist also
known as Sunday Igboho has been on the news and now the talk of the town, ever
since he gave the Fulani a seven-day ultimatum to vacate the Igbaraba land in
Oyo state. He was also alleged to possess spiritual powers that enable him to
easily fight and crush his enemies and come out of tough battles victorious.
But no matter how tough one can be, there
must be a way to defeat him, here are ways Nigeria Leader, President Muhammadu
Buhari could explore to silence Sunday Igboho whose rise to national prominence
and has been threatening his administration.
1. Outright Arrest by The Police:
If President Muhammadu Buhari might ignore
the war rhetoric of Chief Sunday Adeyemo and order the police to arrest him as
already rumoured, he will be silenced. Chief Sunday Adeyemo has been accused of
attacking a Fulani settlement in Igbaraba and this is a criminal offense. This
judicial process will break Chief Sunday Adeyemo and slow him down as it did to
Nnamdi Kanu in 2017/2018.
2. House Arrest:
If President Muhammadu Buhari might deploy
hundreds of soldiers to surround Chief Sunday Adeyemo’s house and make sure he
never leaves over some time. With this move, he will be cornered and silenced.
3. Media Attacks:
Waging a media war against Sunday Igboho
could also work effectively. Chief Sunday Adeyemo enjoys so much goodwill in social
media. Contents about him are massively consumed and his supporters are
increasing by the day. But Sunday Igboho isn’t a saint. He has been alleged to
be a land grabber and a political thug who benefitted from the political turmoil
in Oyo State and the South-western politics at large. If Nigerian Leader, President
Muhammadu Buhari mandates certain journalists to dig up dirt on him and
publicize, he will immediately lose popularity and become irrelevant like most
activists in Nigeria.
4. Using Money
Sunday Igboho is strikingly rich. The Yoruba
activist made his vast wealth from politics by supporting popular political
actors. Like Femi Ojudu said in his controversial article, Sunday Igboho has
his price. We all have our prices. If President Muhammdu Buhari could splash the
cash on the table of Igboho and offer him a lucrative contract or oil block, he
might purposely lose his voice and go live with the Fulanis.
5. Stirring Up Internal Crisis:
If President Buhari could sows division
amongst the Yoruba leaders, Igboho will be exposed. Already, Femi Ojudu and
Gani Adams appear to be jealous of Igboho’s popularity and indirectly
attacked him too because Sunday Igboho is enjoying the political backings of
some Yoruba leaders and other prominent people in the South-western region.
6. Sponsoring His Local Enemies
Just like the way the Federal Government
allegedly used hoodlums and political thugs to discreetly thwart the peaceful
#EndSARS protests last year, President Buhari might take the same route against
Sunday Igboho. The government could empower his local arch-rival, Alhaji
Mukaila Lamidi, popularly called Auxiliary against him. These bad guys know
each other and could silently cripple Sunday Igboho from within without public
