This fight is about more than just Yorubaland; it's about ALL Africans.
Rally your friends and contact your legislators to help bring global attention to the kidnapping and detention of Nigerian freedom fighter, Sunday Igboho.
Chief Igboho has not been charged with a crime, yet he was unlawfully detained and has been in Beninese custody, away from his wife and children, since July 19, 2021.
Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo is a husband, father, and entrepreneur who has come to be known for his strong stance on the importance of self-determination for the Yoruba people.
Adeyemo was born in Igboho, Old Oyo empire, of Oke ogun in Oyo State, which is why he’s commonly referred to as Sunday Igboho or Chief Igboho.
A government-sanctioned, late-night raid on Igboho’s home on July 1, 2021, led to the deaths of two members of his team, and the detention of more than a dozen of his aides. But Sunday Igboho and his family escaped.
At the behest of the Nigerian government, Chief Igboho and his wife were illegally detained in Benin, removed from a flight en route to Germany to unite with their families. Sunday Igboho has been in custody without formal charges since July 2021.
Chief Igboho has been in the crosshairs of Nigerian leaders since he first called for Fulani herdsmen to leave Yoruba lands (see map below).
Self-determination is the right of every person, every African, to direct their own steps and forge the path of their own destiny, both collectively and as individuals.
Self-determination includes controlling our own land, establishing our own laws, choosing and installing our own leaders, and being the architects of our own economies.
