Igboho has done well.. but it is time to let authorities do their job - Ooni of Ife breaks silence on Igboho/Herdsmen crisis

Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has urged popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, well known as Sunday Igboho, not to take laws into his hands.

The monarch said though Igboho has done well to speak for the downtrodden, it was time he allowed the constituted authorities including the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, to take charge and handle the security challenges in the state.

“Let us be very objective. He (Igboho) is being a mouthpiece for the downtrodden. He came up and everybody is listening now but my advice to him as a traditional ruler is that he needs to be very careful so that the politicians won’t hijack the whole motive from him.

“He has done well and we’ve already praised him but he shouldn’t take laws into his hands. We have the governor there, he is the chief security officer of the state and Mr President has invited him (Makinde). Let the right people that are being authorised to do what is right do it.

“He (Igboho) has done well and the world has heard him but everything should be done in moderation,” Oba Ogunwusi said on an Arise TV.
