The uprising Yoruba activist and acclaimed hero Chief Sunday Adeyomo aka Sunday Igboho as declared he has what it takes to end Boko Haram without the government support.
According to THE NATION, Igboho made this declaration in a video interview released in 2020.
He said: “That which I will use in the fight against Boko Haram, I have it already,”
The video sees the light of the day again as the former Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, in a called for help, appeal to the Federal Government to invite Igboho to help drive Boko Haram terrorists out of the Sambisa forest where they hide.
Sani also argued that Igboho could help end terrorism in the fourth and particularly in the North-East if given a chance. He went further, asking the FG to invite Igboho to help flush out Boko Haram sect from the dreaded Sambisa forest in Borno State.
Sunday Igboho who is now seen by many in the South-West as God sent hero after he successfully drove out herdsmen in the Ibarapa area of Oyo State, blaming them for the cases of killing and kidnapping in the area.
Likewise, in Ogun state, he recently visited a community there “to help flush out killer herdsmen”.
Sani took to his Twitter and posted: ” invite Sunday Igboho to help drive away BH (Boko Haram) from Sambisa” as Sambisa forest is considered the hideout of the Jihadist group where they keep hostages.
However, in 2020, Sunday Igboho was quoted saying the Western Nigerian Security Network known as Amotekun, cannot be effective under government control
He said: “These herders we are fighting against, they are not after money, they only get orders from their leaders. Yoruba freedom fighters should not be kept under Governors, these governors will turn the fight against insecurity to business.
“Oyo State governor is of the Peoples Democratic Party, Osun, Ekiti, Ondo, and Lagos state governors are all of the All Progressives Congress and you want our own PDP governor here to support them, how will there be unity?
“And all the powers in this country belong to someone who is a Hausa-Fulani man. They established Amotekun and put it under a governor, the same governor that will request money from the federal authority.
“Yoruba youths only if we can be willing to fight. I am not asking for anything from anybody, what I will use in the fight against Boko Haram, I have it.
“I don’t need it from a governor because a governor will try to make money from it. He will claim he has spent a certain amount on Amotekun and makes a profit from it. This will not result in something good.
“When they wanted to start Oodua Peoples Congress, was it under any governor? Why is Amotekun meant to fight insecurity in the South-West, under the police?
“That’s rubbish; these people are not ready to fight for the Yorubas, they are simply looking for what to take from who.”
Igboho also said a time would come when people would rise to defend their lands.
