Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho has said that he’s not in support of the threat made by some Yoruba youths who threatened to invade the palace of the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo.
Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, had during a viral video, threatened that the Oduduwa agitators would soon attack the monarch in his palace and other traditional rulers who don’t support their agitation.
But Igboho’s Senior Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dapo Salami, said the statement was made solely by Koiki.
Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, last week, warned that it had been within the best interest of all Nigerians to stay one, no matter the present challenges.
Oba Adedotun, a retired Brigadier-General, said Nigeria couldn’t afford another war or absorb a large number of Nigerians that would be displaced by any war.
Igboho’s Senior Adviser on Media and Publicity said: “Chief Sunday Igboho has nothing to try to do with this declaration by Koiki, though Koiki is Igboho’s spokesman but on this particular one, Chief isn’t in support.
“The Alake of Egbaland may be a major leader in Yorubaland whom we honour and have such a lot reverence for. Igboho will never say he wants to travel and invade his palace.
“Koiki came in from the UK so he doesn’t understand some things. We aren’t for violence, we aren’t getting to invade any Oba’s Palace. We respect all of them, they’re our fathers, and that we will never disrespect them.”
