According to him, he was born 47 years ago in Igboho in Oke-Ogun, Oyo State.

Chief Adeyemo hails from Aladinkun compound, Modeke, Igboho, Oorelope Local Government Area. He grew up normally like any other child but began to manifest traits of unusual stubbornness and toughness as a teenager.

He attended primary and junior secondary schools in Igboho before moving to Modakeke in Osun State with his father. His last school in Igboho was Baptist High School. He relocated with his father to Modakeke where he grew up fighting in the community. He learnt a vocation and fraternised with NURTW members, but he is not known as a major member of the union.

He adopted the nickname ‘Igboho’ in Modakeke. He was described as the son of an Igboho man.

Igboho was said to have acquired mystical traditional powers to command guns and other weapons into appearance. This is his most outstanding ability. With this ability and power, he fought on the side of Modakeke during the 1996/97 Ife/Modakeke riot. He left the community after his fame grew, attracting envy among people in Modakeke community.

His fame as a local activist during the Modakeke/Ife riot attracted him to politicians, who took over leadership from the military with the return of civilian rule in 1999.

He worked for a former governor of Osun State and settled in Osogbo for some years. He later worked as an independent traditional security coordinator for a former governor of Oyo State Rashidi Ladoja at the heat of the violent crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from 2004 to 2009.

His success at protecting Ladoja at the PDP rally in Akure, Ondo State capital, in December 2006, where the former governor was believed to be targeted for a major attack, remains a mystery to political watchers.

As a result, his fame rose in Ibadan and Oyo State given that Ladoja enjoyed massive sympathy among the populace, which condemned the way the PDP impeached him ‘illegally’ and gave the governorship ticket to his deputy, Adebayo Alao-Akala, in the 2007 election instead of allowing him (Ladoja). Igboho’s relationship with Ladoja enhanced the former’s reputation among the people.

When the late Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimola (2011-2019) caged the activities of hoodlums and reduced violence and brigandage in the city, Igboho went into the business of selling cars and landed properties. Those who have had encounters with him confirmed that he used to fight for victims of land grabbing. For that, he was given plots of lands.

He is one of the promoters of Oduduwa Republic.
