Popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho has revised his narration of his interactions with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu saying that he met him once ahead of the Ondo State governorship election. He said that he met Tinubu in his Bourdillion Street residence and went away with N2m fuel money.
Igboho spoke with popular journalist, Dele Momodu on an Instagram Live chat.
The chat followed an earlier session with journalists on Tuesday morning during which he debunked claims by Senator Babafemi Ojudu in which he denied ever being used by Tinubu in the past.
GWG reports that Ojudu had in a write up narrated how Igboho met Tinubu in a hotel in Akure in the run-up to the 2009 governorship supplementary election in Ekiti State.
Ojudu had claimed that Igboho met Tinubu to be persuaded to stay out of the election. It was claimed that the PDP had already recruited him and others to play a spoiler role in that election.
He had debunked the claim calling Senator Ojudu a liar.

He said the meeting was facilitated by Senator Rasheed Ladoja, the former governor of Oyo State and that he went away with N2m fuel money from Tinubu.
Igboho said he went to Lagos and met the former Lagos State governor in his Bourdillion, Ikoyi Lagos residence and was persuaded not to support the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
He said Tinubu persuaded him on the claim that the PDP had facilitated the impeachment of his political godfather, Ladoja as governor of Oyo State.
He said that as he left that Tinubu gave him a sum of N2m to fuel his vehicle back to his base.
He also affirmed that he was not into thuggery but a car dealer.
