The Olubadan of Ibadan, the Yoruba king, has denied collecting a dollar from anybody to help in the arrest of Yoruba Nation agitator Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.
The monarch made the announcement as Yoruba Nation agitators held a demonstration in Ibadan on Wednesday, demanding the release of agitators detained by the Department of State Service, DSS.
In his statement, Olubadan denied receiving N50 million from the Federal Government to assist in the arrest of Igboho.
Mr. Adeola Oloko, the media aide of the Olubadan of Ibadan, said: “The protesters were here. Before they came, we have been hearing through news on social media that Kabiyesi received the sum of N50m for the killing of Igboho, or for his arrest to become possible.
“I want to seize this opportunity to inform the public Kabiyesi didn’t collect a dime from anybody. Sunday Igboho is a Yoruba man, he lives in Ibadan. He is a son of Kabiyesi Olubadan, and we are duty-bound to protect him.
“At 92 going to 93, what does he need much money for?”
