Self-styled Yoruba activist and freedom fighter, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has cried out after his bank accounts were frozen by the Federal Government.
Igboho who made this known on Tuesday, said his accounts were frozen on the orders of the FG following his attack on the criminal herdsmen in Oyo State some weeks ago.
Igboho confirmed that the freezing of all his bank accounts came after some of his supporters opened a Gofundme account and started making donations in response to his request for buses to carry his fighters to different parts of Yorubaland to flush out the ‘killer-herdsmen’.
Igboho who said he was told about the donations, however said he had no hands in the said donations, warned that if his accounts remained frozen, there will a nationwide protest by youths across the South-West region.
“They have frozen my bank accounts because I am fighting a just course. I know Yoruba people are behind me. I will not relent. I must achieve my aims by putting an end to criminalities in Yorubaland.
“If they refuse to release my accounts, there will be serious protests across the South-West. Yes, the Yoruba are living in fear. They are afraid that the killer-herdsmen might attack them,” he threatened.
