Nigerian Joint security Forces on Friday attempted to arrest the now popular Sunday Ighoho.
Sunday Igboho who came into limelight through his renewed war against Fulani Herdsmen terrorizing the Yoruba Ancestral Lands.
There was pandemonium along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Friday when a joint team of policemen and the Department of State Services attempted to arrest Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho.
According to a video obtained Igboho, who is topless, is seen with his men daring the security operatives to “do their worst” before they drove off.
According to a statement signed by a former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, Igboho was on his way to meet with 93-year-old Afenifere Chieftain, Ayo Adebanjo, when the incident occurred.
Former minister of aviation Femi Fani-Kayode who shared the videos said there was an attempt by security forces to arrest activist Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho on Friday.
He wrote: “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,” he tweeted.
“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. 2/”
“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.”
