By John Imade (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Security agents have been advised against arresting Sunday Adeyemi “Igboho”, a Yoruba activist, because he is a patriot fighting for his people.
This was the view of a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafia,on Wednesday during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
“Let me make this point clear. Under our constitution, under our laws and by the precepts of international laws, global ethics, natural justice and equity, the people who are about to die have a right to defend themselves, so they (security agencies) will be wise not to go after Igboho,” he said. “They should leave that man alone; he is a hero of his people.”
Igboho shot to prominence in January 2021 when he issued a one-week ultimatum to criminal herders to leave Ibarapa, Oyo State following a crisis that hit the area.
