Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE) said yesterday that it is working silently to secure the release of the self-acclaimed Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
It said it supported Igboho’s agitation, but cautioned him to do it within the ambit of law.
Speaking with reporters in Ibadan, Oyo State, the Secretary General of YCE, Dr. Kunle Olajide, lamented that the current situation in the country does not give hope to youths, which makes them to be frustrated.
He said: “The younger generation cannot be patient, as we the older generation do. We are not opposed to their reaction, but we want them to moderate it.”
Igboho was arrested by security operatives at an airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic, alongside his wife, Ropo, while trying to catch a flight to Germany.
The Department of State Services (DSS) on July 1 raided his home in Ibadan.
