The actualization of the Yoruba and Biafran Nations has been urged by Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, a leading advocate for the Yoruba Nation.
Igboho, who made the appeal in a statement by his spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, claimed that Fulani people have seized control of everything in Nigeria with the help of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, enslaving the Southern part of the country in the process.
Igboho bemoaned the fact that Nigeria’s current security situation is worse than the conflict-torn Ukraine’s, noting that while war zones in Ukraine are well-known, every area of Nigeria has turned into one where people are being slain without regard for their gender or ethnicity.
The statement was made accessible to reporters in parts on Monday, and it said, “The Yoruba people are suffering through the worst moment ever. I researched the history of the League of Nations and the origins of the United Nations. Additionally, I am aware of the admirable role that the United States, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and France play on the Security Council and other international bodies.
“I want to ask the establishment and the general public to spare a thought for us and come to our help. We Yoruba want to leave this Nigerian “British Made Union.” To prevent bloodshed, the world’s bodies should heed these callings now than ever.
“The country called Nigeria was coined by British colonial power more than 100 years ago. Forcing together 3 major Nations, Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba. Today, none of these nations is thriving. The Fulani that came into the scene with the sneaky name “Hausa-Fulani” has managed to seize total control of everything, with the help of many nations called Northern Nigeria and their greedy politicians from Southern Nigeria.
“Today the world knows Nigeria is a failed State. It no longer exists. Economy is dead and can never be revived. Security is worse than even some war zones like Ukraine. At least in Ukraine, you know the war zone and the civilian zone. In Nigeria everywhere is a war zone and no one is safe anymore.
“To make the matter worse, opportunist groups like radical Islamic group, ISIS, Al Qaeda, ISWAP and so on have now joined with Boko Haram and Fulani Militia, with a common goal of taking over the entire failed country and killing and terrorizing as many people as necessary to achieve this.
“We Yoruba are now saying we have seen this coming 2 years ago when I started this activism. Churches have never been attacked in Yoruba land. Today we have seen it in Owo, there was another major clash that took many lives in Kwara State recently, involving this same Fulani.
“The Federal Government of Nigeria has told the Media Houses in Nigeria to deliberately underreport genocide, this is why they revoked the licenses of some TV and radio stations recently. But the social media is there and that is the direct news from the victims.
“So, I call on the world; Brazil; Cuba and all the Latin American countries that we share some religious bonds with. And this also includes Ghana; South Africa and other African countries as well. We Yoruba cannot achieve our country in isolation, we need your cooperation and assistance.
“Yoruba descendants are all over these countries and many more countries in the world. You all already know who we are and how we behave and that is our resume to the World. You can deduce from that what kind of countries will be added to the World by us Yoruba.
“This Nigeria that we were forced to be part of by colonial power is dead and if we don’t save ourselves now, it will take millions of citizens down with her. It is not safe also for the world communities to allow Africa’s most populous country to be hijacked by terrorists, and it becomes the new terrorists breeding ground.
“So, I call on the UN; USA, Russia, China and all international bodies, to carefully examine our case, and help us achieve our own nation, Yoruba Nation, and also the Igbo wants their Biafra Nation. Let us have our countries and it is safer for the World.
“We have more reasons than ever to dissolve this Evil Union, and let everyone go back to their true nationhood.
“My name is Sunday Adeyemo. I appeal to the World Community to look into my communiqué as this is on behalf of my people. I also want the whole world to ignore what the Fulani Government and our Politicians are telling them, as it is all cover-up.
“The world saw the crowd that I pulled during my peaceful rallies last year before the Federal Government of Nigeria made an assassination attempt on my life. The crowd is a true reflection of my YORUBA people’s wish. The elections continuity is just a false view to the World by the Federal Government of Nigeria and the people with an agenda.
“We want our YORUBA Nation back as we are no more interested in the Nigerian Union anymore. And we need the World’s help.”
