Femi Fani-Kayode has weighed in on the attempted arrest of Yoruba to the attempted arrest of Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho.
Recall that DSS and other security operatives attempted to arrest Sunday Igboho yesterday along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Friday, February 26. However, the arrest was resisted by gallant youth who were at the scene.
Reacting to this, FFK released a statement to condemn the attempt saying it will be a dangerous and reckless mistake for the government to “kill or detain” the Yoruba activsit. He added that Sunday is a hero to million Yorubas and he is not aware of the crime he has committed but then if security agencies want to see him, they should just invite him to their office.
Read his statement below
”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 and policemen numbering about 40 on the Ibadan/Lagos Expressway whilst he was on his way to see Baba Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos.
I condemn this attempt to ambush and 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 and 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 and either killing him or detaining him unlawfully would be the biggest mistake they could make.
Building bridges, dialogue and the pursuit of peace is better than intimidation, threats, violence and war.
A word is enough for the wise.”
