The monarch called on Igboho to leave his hideout and surrender himself for arrest before it would be too late.
Oduduwa Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho has been urged by a traditional ruler in Osun State, Olowu Of Owu-Kuta, Makama Oyelude to turn himself to the authorities because no one can go against the government and succeed.
The Department of State Services had declared Adeyemo wanted and asked him to surrender himself for arrest at any security agency after raiding his residence in Ibadan and killing two of his supporters.
The paramount Yoruba king of Owu kingdom admonished secession agitators to dialogue with the Federal Government arguing that “no one dare face the Federal Government and succeed.”
“I am not part of agitations for secession by separatists and unpatriotic Nigerians and I can’t be part of it. Even though Nigerians doesn’t favour all, we shouldn’t secede. Without consultations, you cannot be talking of secession and that’s why even the Obas are not discussing it.
“They (agitators) will find it difficult from seceding because it’s dead on arrival. Federal Government is the father of the nation and the separatist movement is not a cheap struggle; It is like you are waging arms against the State. Suffering, hardship and internal bickerings will greet regions that secede.
“Nobody dare face the Federal govt and succeed. I will advise the agitators to dialogue with the Federal Government. They have had ample opportunity to do so now when it’s ripe.
Sunday Igboho can give himself voluntarily to the Federal Government rather than they go fishing him out like Nnamdi Kanu. There is no place for him to hide,” the monarch declared.
