The Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, alias Sunday Igboho, has disowned Babafemi Ojudu, Special Adviser on Political Matter in the presidency, calling him a liar.
In an interactive session with newsmen on Tuesday, Igboho told Ojudu to stop circulating lies, threatening to take legal action against him if he continues.
Recall that Ojudu had alleged that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, held a secret meeting with Igboho in 2009 concerning the then upcoming rerun-election that brought in Dr Kayode Fayemi as Ekiti State Governor.
Acccording to Ojudu, Igboho told Tinubu that he had been paid by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to scatter poll and instigate violence. He alleged that after meeting Tinubu, Igboho backed down and agreed not to disrupt the gubernatorial election with prerequisite that the late Lamidi Adedibu, must not know about the meeting.
In his reaction on Tuesday, Igboho said: “Femi Ojudu is a liar. He is out to defame me… Ojodu mentioned Ahmed Tinubu in the piece, you can go and ask Tinubu about the election. I have only worked for two people; the late Lamidi Adesina and Rashidi Ladoja. I have never worked for Adedibu.
“Adedibu died in 2008 and Ojudu said the same Adedibu asked me to go to Ekiti in 2009. You can see he is a liar. Politicians are trying to penetrate the Yoruba struggle. You can kill the messenger but you cannot kill the message.
“I don’t know any Ojudu and if he is sure that I met him in a hotel, let him swear by the life of his children.”
