Professor Emeritus Banji Akintoye, who is the leader of the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), has called on Yoruba people home and in the diaspora to begin mass protests.

According to the statement which wass personally signed by him and made available to newsmen thorugh his Communications Manager, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, he alleged that the attack was carried out by the elements of the Nigerian Army who were accompanied by International Terrorists hired by the Nigerian State.

The renowned historian also alleged that the invaders were all dressed in Military Uniform and spoke the French language fluently. Prof. Akintoye further alleged that the gunmen killed seven occupants in the building and kidnapped sunday Igboho’s wife and several others away.

Akintoye said: “This is an emergency response to an emergency matter by Ilana Omo Oodua.

“Around 1 am today Thursday 1st July 2021, the Ibadan, Oyo State Residence of one of the leading men in our struggle for self-determination in Yoruba Land, Chief Sunday Adeyemo fondly called Sunday Igboho was unfortunately attacked by gunmen.

“I want to say to the whole world that the attack was carried out by the elements of the Nigerian Army who were accompanied by international terrorists hired by the Nigerian State.

“The Assasilants spoke French Language fluently. Seven people were killed by the attackers, with their corpses taken away. Scores of people, including the wife of Chief Ighoho, were also taken away by the gunmen.

“Let me state without any fear or intimidation that the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration was responsible for the war that has just been declared against the peace-loving people of Yoruba Land.

“We have been peaceful from the inception of this struggle. We have adhered with both the Nigerian and International Laws guiding the agitation for Self-Determination.

“All our agitations have been peacefully, orderly and lawfully executed. We have commended the officers of the Nigerian Police many time for being professional in their modus of operations in relating to our protests and rallies for Self-Determination in Yoruba cities.“Therefore, I say on behalf of the Yoruba people that this attack on Chief Ighoho’s House was unnecessary, unfortunate, wicked, callous, cruel, irresponsible, illegal and atrocious.

“We are holding the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration responsible for this barbaric attack. This is a declaration of war against peace-loving people.

“We want to confirm again that the Pro-Yoruba Nation rally scheduled to hold on Saturday July 3rd, in Lagos will proceed as scheduled.”
