Yoruba nation agitator Sunday Igboho has denied any arrest by any security operatives in Nigeria.
In a statement signed by his spokesman, Koiki Olayomi made available to newsmen said “The failure of President Muhammadu Buhari and his government to curb the criminal activities of the murderous herdsmen necessitated my intervention. I ordinarily would not have intervened if government had lived up to its responsibility of securing the Southwest and Nigeria at large from the criminal activities of the President’s ethnic men.”
Nigerians and the world at large are aware of my resistance to the incessant killings, raping and kidnapping of my people in Southwest Nigeria by armed Fulani herdsmen. The failure of President Muhammadu Buhari and his government to curb the criminal activities of the murderous herdsmen necessitated my intervention. I ordinarily would not have intervened if government had lived up to its responsibility of securing the Southwest and Nigeria at large from the criminal activities of the President’s ethnic men.
He further said it is of public knowledge,” that my intervention has not let to any loss of live or bloodshed. My means of curbing criminality is to the chase the criminal Fulani herdsmen out of their hideouts in company of the people of the affected communities. It is because of the foreseen government persecution that videos of such interventions were transmitted live on social media. Nigerians, the security operatives, and the presidency are aware that I have never moved against the peaceful Fulani’s and other tribes living peacefully in the Southwest. My unjust persecution — for defending my people and community — is therefore surprising and unwarranted.
Nigerians and the international community should please note that I am a law-abiding citizen without blemish. I advise President Buhari to, in the interest of Nigerians that voted him to power, order his henchmen to desist from using falsehood and unholy tactics to soil my name. Such energy should be devoted to taming the herdsmen and bandits freely committing heinous crimes across Nigeria with impunity because their kinsman is in power.
Meanwhile the founder of Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, Sat Guru Maharaj has debunked a social media report that, Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo aKa ‘Igboho’ was arrested in his temple located along Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
Satguru Maharaj who addresses himself as the Living Perfect Master said contrary to the speculation he was not aware of such arrest, neither was he arrested as reported in some quarters but was in his home in Lagos, and not in the know of the said falsehood, pointing out that he is a peaceful and God sent to the universe.
‘I am in my house in Lagos. Those speculating falsehood are mischief-makers, whose heads needs to be examine. I am not aware of such arrest, nor I was arrested. No arrest made in my temple, so ignore such speculations’, he emphasized
Recall that the Nigerian Government has declared Sunday Igboho wanted and has been on show of strength since days ago in order to prevent any rally from holding in LAGOS, Though Igboho had vowed to hold a Yoruba mega rally in Lagos today
