Killer herdsmen: Ooni breaks silence on Sunday Igboho’s accusation

The Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II, says he has forgiven Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, over the viral video in which Igboho lambasted the monarch over the herdsmen crisis.

The media aide to Ooni, Moses Olafare, made this known on Thursday, saying that the monarch is behind Igboho’s move to drive “criminal herdsmen” away from the South-West.

The activist had accused the monarch of disappointing the Yoruba people when he visited President Muhammadu Buhari, over the herdsmen crisis rocking the South-West region. that the monarch decided to tackle him instead.

He also claimed that Ooni did not tell Buhari about the true situation of things in Yorubaland.

But Olafare said Ogunwusi was unperturbed by the abuses of words rained on him by the Yoruba activist who had two days ago spoken derogatorily about the monarch.

He said, “Sunday Igboho still remains a son to the Ooni. Baba has already forgiven him because he had tendered an apology via a video clip he produced via social media yesterday evening.

“The royal father according to Olafare could not bicker with any of his sons even in the face of quantum of provocations.

“Sunday Igboho thereafter released the video in which he tendered his apology. Even though the way and manner Sunday had behaved was sacrilegious to the Oduduwa throne but he has already apologized and I can confirm that Arole Oodua has forgiven him, because, there is no perfection in humanity. Sunday is a human being like any other normal human being who could misbehave as well. No one is perfect!.

  1. Case closed.

    Ooni has keyed in his support, that’s the most controversial issue and that is now a known fact that Sunday has the backing and blessing of the Ooni.

  2. 9ce one. I still hold my views that if it means throwing shit (advertently or inadvertently) at some of our reverred Yoruba traditional rulers for their wake-up call, so be it.

  3. I admire the yoruba people true. See unity of purpose. We Igbos dey blast our son, Nnamdi Kanu. Good moves. A house divided will be easy to fall.
