Yoruba Nation agitator and activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho has revealed why the administration of ex-President ‘planned to assasinate’ him. 

Allnews.ng had yesterday reported that Sunday Igboho returned to Nigeria for the burial of his mother, he also made the confirmation on Friday in an interview.

Igboho maintained he came back to Nigeria by the power of God while accusing former President Muhammadu Buhari of attempting to assassinate him.

He alleged that Buhari sent the Department of State Services (DSS) and soldiers to assassinate him in his house.

Addressing his followers in Oyo State, the freedom fighter claimed that his agitation against Fulani herders killing of farmers in the Southwest was behind the move to assassinate him.


According to Igboho: “Buhari sent his soldiers and DSS to arrest me in my house because I said Yorubas are not slaves to Fulanis, they can’t suppress us in our father’s land.

“Fulanis can’t stop our fathers and mothers from going to their farms. But, I’m back with the power of God and authority not that of man.”

The freedom fighter returned to Nigeria on Thursday, ahead of his mother’s burial in the Saki area of Oyo State.

Igboho has been out of Nigeria since 2021 when he eloped to Benin Republic after he was declared wanted by the DSS. DSS had invaded his residence in the Soka area of Oyo State but he escaped.

The secret police had declared him wanted over his agitation for Yoruba Nation and attacks on Fulani herders accused of killing farmers in the Southwest. 


In Benin Republic, Igboho was arrested and remanded while attempting to travel to Germany. 

However, he recently regained his freedom after two years in a Beninoise prison.
