Sunday Igboho’s father and Modakeke war
Igboho in an interview with Tribune claimed he inherited the power to command guns from his father. Explaining his role in the Ife-Modakeke communal war, he was quoted to have said; “
I took up the duty when the crisis erupted and I realized that Modakeke was ready to be repressed.
I resolved then that if God could grant me victory in battling against Modakeke’s persecution, there would be nowhere someone would be deceived around me and I would not rise in their defense.
Modakeke people did not get there overnight; they did not arrive there 100 years ago and you just told them to leave their land.
“It will be unjust if somebody argues that since I claimed I had not murdered previously, they refer to the Ife-Modakeke crisis, because that was a war.”
A guy who intended to murder me and razed my property is intent on killing me, therefore I don’t think it’s a crime if he killed in self-defense.
“May God pardon us, but no one should pass judgment on me based on a narrative about which they do not have all the facts.” I resided in Modakeke, and the Ile-Ife people threatened to expel Modakeke residents from their grounds. That’s where these individuals had spent their whole lives.
“How can you suddenly stand up and send them away?” That’s where my father lived and constructed a house, and that’s where I grew up. As a result, I had to defend my home.
“Our house was destroyed by fire during that crisis.” I had lived in Modakeke since 1985, where I had learned a trade, married, and had children. “Should I have folded my arms when my father’s house burned down and I lost everything?”
“I am an original Christian.” When I was born, I was baptised by the church in Igboho. That is what I was told because I was not present. And I met my father while growing up while attending church. But he was a herbalist, and powers may be inherited,” explains Sunday Igboho.
