YCE cautions ‘Igboho’ over utterances, comment on Adeboye


The Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE), yesterday, urged the Yoruba rights activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday ‘Igboho’, to mind his utterances on leaders and men of God who are not in support of agitation for Oduduwa nation.

Adeyemo, in a viral video, had said he would not commiserate with Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) over the demise of his son, Pastor Dare.

Igboho went further to heap curses on Yoruba leaders and men of God who are not supporting the agitation for an independent Yoruba state.

Reacting, however, YCE, through its Secretary-General, Dr. Kunle Olajide, urged the freedom fighter to thread softly in his agitation.

Olajide said: “On the human side, anybody bereaved, especially bereaved by the loss of his son, will deserve human sympathy. Agitation for Oodua nation is a personal opinion and every Nigerian has a right to his opinion.

“Apart from that, in Yoruba culture, elders deserve respect. Even the major religions admonish us to respect our elders. I think it was very unfortunate.

“My advice is for him to thread softly about this agitation and mind his public utterances. Every word every body speaks is a seed he sows and he would reap it in many ways in the future.”
