The Aseyin of Iseyinland, Oba Abdulganiyy Salau, has told freedom fighter for the Yoruba nation Sunday Adeyemo better known as Sunday Igboho, to stay away from Iseyin at the moment.

The monarch was involved in a telephone interview with The PUNCH in Ibadan on Monday, where he disclosed that the town is not in the mood for such a rally now considering what happened last week.

The monarch said, “Yes, I said they should not bring Yoruba nation rally to Iseyin. The town is not in the mood for such rally now considering what happened last week.

“You can know when they will start but anything can happen along the line. The people are still grieving. So, they should not come to Iseyin for any rally now.”

You could recall Sunday Igboho organized a Yoruba Nation rally in Osogbo, Osun State’s capital, on Saturday May 15. He revealed that some Southwest governors are interested in breaking away but are afraid that their monthly allowance will be withheld if they announce open support for an independent Yoruba nation.


He said: “I can’t be cowed or intimidated. They said I would be arrested. Who would dare do that? We are no longer part of Nigeria. We won’t have anything to do with them again. 

“There is no election again in Yorubaland until we have a Yoruba nation. Those in authority initially thought we were joking when we demanded an independent Yoruba nation.

“All our governors are with us. From Oyo, Ogun and Ondo to Ekiti, Lagos and Osun, they are supporting us, but they can’t do it openly. Allocation they give them in Abuja may stop if they do it openly. So, don’t abuse them again. Governor Oyetola was informed I will be in Osun and he allowed us to come here. All our monarchs are with us.”
