Yoruba freedom fighter, Chief Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho), has made it clear that he is not seeking any political relevance by rising against Fulani herdsmen in Oyo State.
Reacting to a speculation that one of the resolutions proposed by Southwest governors during their meeting in Akure, Ondo State yesterday, January 25 was to appoint him the overall commandant of Aotekun corps in the region, Igboho stressed that he is not interested in such position.
Igboho, who spoke to newsmen today, January 26 said: “I am not interested in being the commander of Amotekun. I don’t seek such relevance. What I am saying is that the Fulani herders that are terrorising my people should leave the area.
“We want peace and that is all. I don’t need any political appointment or money from anybody. We only want peace in our area.”
There has been speculation that after the meeting, one of the governors tipped Igboho to oversee all Southwest states, as well as Kwara and Kogi states for an initial period of five years, with the clear mandate to rid all Yorubaland and forests of criminals.
It was further speculated that his office would be situated in Ibadan, Oyo State, with the paraphernalia of office that would be equivalent to that of a Deputy Inspector General of Police.
