The Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho has made his first public appearance since he left for Germany.

Mr Adeyemo was released in October this year, two years after his incarceration in the Republic of Benin.

In a video shared on his Instagram page on Monday, November 13, he wished his followers a "happy new week".

The video has garnered severe reactions since it was posted.

Mr Adeyemo came to the limelight after he, in January 2021, issued a seven-day ultimatum to Fulani residents in Igangan in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to leave to check kidnappings allegedly perpetrated in the area by herders linked to the ethnic group.

He would later lead a mob to burn down the house of the Seriki Fulani of Oyo State, Saliu Abdulkadri, in the community.

He soon became a target of the State Security Service (SSS) as he became more aggressive in his campaigns against herdsmen accused of kidnapping in South-west states, and agitation for the Yoruba nation.

He touted his agitation as the only way to liberate Yoruba people from insufferable attacks and being shortchanged in the Nigeria nation.

He was declared wanted by the State Security Service (SSS) over his agitation for Yoruba nation sovereignty.
