Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba rights campaigner, has condemned the gruesome massacre of worshippers at St Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State.
Unknown gunmen assaulted the catholic church on Sunday, killing numerous people just as the service was about to end, according to ecocitytv.
The gunmen reportedly exploded explosives before opening fire on worshippers, including women and children.
Following the terrorist attack on the church and the deaths of over 20 attendees, Igboho, who spoke in Yoruba, purportedly declared he had been vindicated in a viral recording published on Tuesday morning.
The agitator stated that he warned Yorubas about terrorist activity in the South West, but that the government ignored his warning.
Terrorist operations in the region, according to Igboho, can still be curbed provided the Yoruba people remain united and willing to work with him. He also asked South-West leaders to back him and other brave Yoruba sons and daughters in their efforts to defend the region.
The Yoruba Nation agitator pleaded with politicians he may have insulted during his separatist campaign to pardon him.
He, on the other hand, expressed his condolences to the victims’ families and prayed that the region would never again be terrorized.
He stated, “
“I pray to God that we never have to go through something like this again.” I pray that God comforts the victims’ families.
“Can you see, my dad and moms, that I have been vindicated?” I wasn’t fighting any governors or senators. But you didn’t see what I had in mind. Can you all see now?
“Well, the situation can be salvaged.” Before it’s too late, I want the Yoruba people to unite. I’m hoping that politicians in the South-West will rally behind me and other brave Yoruba sons and daughters so that we can stop this heinous atrocity. Please forgive me if I have offended anyone.”
Now it’s your turn, boys.
