Igboho told me there was a violent attempt to arrest him ~ FFK
A former Minister of Aviation under the administration of President Olusegun Obasanjo, Chief Femi Kayode has said Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba rights activist authoritatively told him there was a violent attempt to arrest him by the security forces.
Kayode who has been a strong critic of President Mohammadu Buhari’s administration in a statement condemned the attempt by the powers that be to arrest Igboho.
He said the Yoruba rights activist has not committed any known crime to warrant his arrest and if the security agencies want to see him, they should have invited him than resorting to forceful arrest.
He said, “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.”
