JUST IN; I can finish Boko Haram war without government support – Sunday Igboho

Renowned Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho has come out to say that he has the solution to wipe out the Boko Haram Insurgency from Nigeria.

According to him all that is needed for him to defeat the terrorist is within his power, and he does not need any help from the government.

CRIMECHANNELS learnt that Sunday said this in an interview dating back to the year 2020.

It was learnt that the video of the interview popped up on social media following Senator Shehu Sani (Kaduna Central) call for the government to seek assistance from Igboho to defeat Boko Haram and chase them out of the Sambisa forest.


In the interview, Sunday said that the Western Nigeria Security Network, also known as Amotekun, can not be efficient when it is being controlled by the government.

He said, “These herders we are fighting against, they are not after money, they only get orders from their leaders. Yoruba freedom fighters should not be kept under Governors, these governors will turn the fight against insecurity to business.”

“Oyo State Governor is of the Peoples Democratic Party, Osun, Ekiti, Ondo, and Lagos state Governors are all of the All Progressives Congress and you want our own PDP Governor here to support them, how will there be unity?”

“And all the powers in this country belong to someone who is a Hausa-Fulani man. They established Amotekun and put it under a Governor, the same Governor that will request money from the federal authority.”

“Yoruba youths only if we can be willing to fight. I am not asking for anything from anybody, what I will use in the fight against Boko Haram, I have it.”

“I don’t need it from a Governor because a Governor will try to make money from it. He will claim he has spent a certain amount on Amotekun and makes a profit from it. This will not result in something good.”

“When they wanted to start Oodua Peoples Congress, was it under any Governor? Why is Amotekun meant to fight insecurity in the South-West, under the Police?”

“That’s rubbish, these people are not ready to fight for the Yorubas, they are simply looking for what to take from who.”

He stated that a time would come when people would rise to defend their lands, he however, added that many people would die in the fight while some would remain alive to enjoy the dividend.
