Published by admin on

Grandson, also known as Adeyinka Shoyemi, a UK-based Nigerian of Yoruba descent, was known for his social media attacks on people of Igbo extraction as well as criticism of the Hausa-Fulani.

Adeyinka Grandson, president of the Young Yorubas for Freedom (YYF) secessionist group has been released from prison.

He was jailed for four and a half years by a Southwark Crown Court in Central London, the United Kingdom in April 2022 over his social media posts against some ethnic groups in Nigeria.

Grandson, also known as Adeyinka Shoyemi, a UK-based Nigerian of Yoruba descent, was known for his social media attacks on people of Igbo extraction as well as criticism of the Hausa-Fulani.

He was first arrested by the Scotland Yard Counter Terrorism Command and the Metropolitan Police under the approval of the Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London in August 2019.

Scotland Yard Counter Terrorism Command had nabbed him for allegedly “stirring racial discrimination” against the Igbo and Fulani ethnic groups and also “encouraging terrorism”.

On several counts, he had issued ‘quit notices’ to Igbo people living in Yoruba land else they would face dire consequences.

Grandson was also known for making anti-Igbo and anti-Fulani speeches on his YouTube channel for which the UK authorities had consistently warned him before he was later arrested.

Items found on him during the arrest including a passport, two Google phones, one Apple MacBook laptop computer, one tablet, a hard drive and a draft copy of his new book were seized.

Following his arrest, the Scotland Yard Counter Terrorism Command grilled him for 9 hours, and the London Metropolitan Police searched his house following a warrant granted by the Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

Grandson was found guilty on 30 November 2021 of eight counts of inciting racial hatred after a trial at Southwark Crown Court.
