The popular activist in Yoruba land, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, said on Saturday the 2023 general elections would not hold in South- West without a referendum for the creation of the Oduduwa Republic.
Igboho stated this at a rally held in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital.
The activist, who addressed youths in the Ekiti State capital, decried the killing of innocent people in the region by herdsmen.
He said: “We must stand up for our freedom because we have suffered enough in the hands of Fulani. We are Yoruba people and we must not be slaves in our own land.”
“This is the reason we said it is enough. We are not going to work with them. We will not vote in 2023, if there is no referendum, that is the truth. The election will not hold in the South-West.
“You can see what the criminal Fulani are doing in our land, killing, kidnapping, and raping our women. People can no longer go to farms for fear of being killed. As of today, we will begin to enter the bushes to chase out Fulani from our land. We don’t want them again.”
