“Olajengbesi is my Son, he has been graciously forgiven” – Akintoye

The Abuja based Lawyer hired by Ilana Omo Oodua, the umbrella body of Yoruba Self-Determination Groups, Mr. Pelumi Olajengbesi, has phoned the leader of the Movement, Professor Banji Akintoye to apologise for his social media outburst of 31st December, 2021.

Olajengbesi had earlier condemned Akintoye on his Facebook timeline over the statement of the renowned scholar that Ilana Omo Oodua will use the Instrumentalities of local and international laws to prevent the Ekiti and Osun States Governorship Elections from holding in 2022.

Many Prominent Yoruba Leaders also phoned Professor Banji Akintoye to apologise on behalf of Mr. Pelumi Olajengbesi.

Akintoye’s Communications Manager, Maxwell Adeleye said “Mr. Pelumi Olajengbesi has called Professor Banji Akintoye this morning 3rd January 2022 to apologise and Baba Akintoye has graciously forgiven him. He has instructed that all the Yoruba Nation Self-Determination Movements all over the world should forgive him.

“Olajengbesi is a Yoruba man. We are proud of his achievements. He defended the Igboho 12 diligently and Our grouse was his interference with Prof. Akintoye’s address. We felt there’s no justification for his vituperations against us on social media, but we are happy that reason has prevailed and Mr. Olajengbesi has deemed it fit to apologise.

“Olajengbesi and the leadership of Ilana Omo Oodua will meet virtually on Wednesday. We shall never antagonise any Yoruba Man even if the person, for reason of lack of conviction, is not in support of our advocacy for Self-Determination. Olajengbesi’s ambition in the Nigerian system is his legitimate right.

“To show that Olajengbesi has truly been forgiven, we have decided to allow him to continue in his defense of the Ighoho2 charged for terrorism by the Nigerian Government. We want to believe he will be loyal to the ethics of his profession henceforth.
