Yoruba Group Call For Military Action Against Sunday Igboho

A Yoruba Group under the Aegis of the Yoruba Appraisal Forum have now called on the Federal Government to unleash agents of the nation's security forces against leaders of secessionist activities in the country especially in the Southwest.

Recall that in the past few months, secession calls in the Southwest have been spearheaded by Sunday Igboho who has taken it upon himself to constantly make incisive and divisive statements. At one point, Igboho had asked residents of a particular part of the country to leave the Southwest.

The YAF has now condemned Igboho's perceived treasonable activities. They urged the Federal Government to send in security operatives from the Nigerian Army, Police and the DSS to curtail the actions of the secessionists before they lead the country into a state of anarchy. The group also alleged that some of the Yoruba agitators were being brainwashed by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra group.
