There have been several reactions online after an alleged violent attempt was made to arrest Sunday Igboho this afternoon by a joint team of uniform men on the Ibadan/Lagos express way. According to the post made by Femi Fani Kayode few minutes ago
"I just spoke to my brother Sunday Igboho. He told me there was a violent attempt to arrest him this afternoon by a joint team of soldiers, DSS operatives & policemen numbering about 40 on the Ibadan/Lagos Expressway whilst he was on his way to see Baba Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos".
The Nigerian politician Fani Kayode who was at one time the Special Assistant (Public Affairs) to President Olusegun Obasanjo went further by sending a message to the FG
" I condemn this attempt to ambush& abduct him. It is not only reckless but also very dangerous. If the security agencies want to see him all they need to do is to invite him to their office. I am not aware of any crime that he has committed & I urge restraint on all sides.
"Let me also send a warning to the FG that Sunday Igboho is a hero to millions of Yorubas & either killing him or detaining him unlawfully would be the biggest mistake they could make. Building bridges,dialogue& peace is better than violence & war.A word is enough for the wise".
As we all know, Sunday Igboho gained social media traction in January 2021 when he gave a week ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen in Ibarapa to vacate the land after the killing of Dr. Aborode.
Left for me, I feel Sunday Igboho should have been invited by the security force rather than attempting to arrest him. The armed forces should at least be cautious this period because the yorubas won't take things funny once things are not done appropriately or what do you think?
