Yoruba youths condemn ‘ridiculing’ of Igboho by DSS officials
A Yoruba group, Youth Socio-cultural Association (YYSA), has condemned the manner Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday ‘Igboho’, was ridiculed by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) a couple of days ago.
In a statement made available to journalists in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, by its National President, Olalekan Hammed and National Secretary, Olawale Ajao, the group said the invasion of Adeyemo’s residence was in contravention of the law.
The group also said that the unwillingness of President Muhammadu Buhari to heed the calls for restructuring and address insecurity besetting the country led to the cacophony of agitations.
The group said: “We are highly perturbed about the ways and manners at which the present administration is trembling on the constitutional right of governors as the chief security officers of their various states.
“Ordinarily, we thought that Oyo State governor was informed about the operation carried out by the DSS in Chief Sunday Igboho’s house until this afternoon when we read the southern governors’ communique frowning at the failure to get them informed before such invasion was carried out.
“We are not happy with the unlawful and ridiculous attack on Sunday Igboho’s house because it was not done in line with the laid down rules and regulations but only by impunity.
“We are advocates of one Nigeria and our stance is that this country should be restructured.
“It is the unwillingness of President Buhari-led administration to listen to various calls for restructuring, his failure to curtail insecurity, ensure equalisation of opportunity and disobedience to the federal character that led to agitation for secession.
“Chief Sunday Igboho is just a product of circumstance, provided the herdsmen menace had been put to an end on time. People like Sunday would not be a topic of discussion in the South-West region let alone Nigeria.”
The youths, therefore, implored the Federal Government to stop pursuing Igboho and consider restructuring the country, as well as correct lopsided appointments.
