Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwo land has enjoined Yoruba monarchs, elders, and stakeholders to engage President Muhammadu Buhari on the need to release the embattled Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a. Sunday Igboho.
In a statement by Alli Ibraheem, his Chief Press Secretary on Sunday, Oba Akanbi also stated that the release of Sunday Igboho would go a long way in strengthening the unity of Nigeria.
Oluwo who appealed to Yoruba monarchs to harmonize their interest towards the release of Igboho premised his argument on Nigeria's unity and added that the country's oneness could be further cemented on the release of the duo of Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu.
While enjoining President Buhari to honour Yoruba kings and stakeholders, the monarch hinted that such a gesture would aid in convincing Yorubas in the diaspora to respect Nigeria's unity.
He urged the federal government to as a matter of urgency relate with the Benin Republic on bilateral grounds and ensure Igboho is safely returned to Nigeria without having to necessarily go through a trial.
While admonishing Nigerians to continuously exhibit love, maturity, and loyalty capable of sustaining the unity of Nigeria, he maintained that such actions would encourage more patriots from Yoruba land.
Recall that a delegation from Eastern Nigeria last week paid a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari where they persuaded him to make the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples Of Biafra a priority.
At the meeting, the president disclosed to the delegation that though he may consider their request it may be a difficult one to fulfil.
