Insecurity; Sunday Igboho’s supporters raise N16 million in three [3] days

Supporters of Yoruba rights activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has donated about £31,470(N16.4m) GoFundMe money as of the time of filing this report.

The fundraising system with a target of N52.3m was organised by a Maureen Badejo, some few days after Igboho issued an ultimatum for Fulani herdsmen to vacate Oyo State.

Igboho proclaimed the ultimatum as a result of the kidnappings, killings, maimings and rape allegedly committed by the herdsmen in Oyo State.

The activist also took his campaign against herdsmen to neighbouring Ogun State where he was welcomed by a crowd of supporters.

In the course of supporting Igboho’s campaign, Badejo created the Gofundme account, which has seen donations from Yoruba people in the diaspora, to help purchase buses that will assist him in securing the Yoruba land.

“They need buses to move around to secure our ancestral land. Our security is threatened as we speak. seems people in a position of authority are helpless,” a statement reads on the account.

One Kehinde Akinboyewa who donated £250, said, “No cause can be more just than this battle for the soul of the Yoruba Nation. Strong message to the Fulani terrorists and their enablers in high places, that though we’re thousands of miles away from home, we’ll stand shoulder to shoulder with our brothers and sisters in Yoruba land. The push back has begun in earnest; wanting to live in peace in your own home can’t be asking for too much!”

Another £20 donor, Fatai Adegbenga Kazeem, said, “It is a just cause for all the Yoruba (people) home and abroad. Enough is enough. Our land must be safe for all again.”

Meanwhile, the activist who spoke in an exclusive interview with gentle men of the press concerning the donation, said he doesn’t need such thing and “there is nothing like that.”
