The protesters, who in their hundreds with placards bearing different inscriptions, warned the Federal Government to stop the further attack on the Yoruba freedom fighter, Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho.

The stern-looking protesters, who marched to Igboho’s house and subsequently walked through major roads in Ibadan before visiting the palace of Oba Saliu Adetunji, the Olubadan of Ibadanland, were dressed in black outfits and armed with charms while chanting solidarity songs calling for the freedom of the Yorubaland.

The protesters, had earlier, blocked the Lagos-Ibadan expressway briefly before moving on to Challenge, Molete, and other areas of the city.

The protesters, however, pleaded with the Yoruba leaders to give their support to enable the fight for the freedom of Yorubaland achievable.

While responding on behalf of the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, the media aide to the traditional ruler, Mr Adeola Oloko, denied the report that the Olubadan collected a sum of N50 million from the Federal Government to make the arrest of Sunday Igboho possible.
