Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has berated the attempt by some security personnel to arrest Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, on Friday.
Kanu, who described the act as another grave provocation by the Federal Government, said Igboho must not be touched by government.
While accusing the Federal Government of pursuing an ethnic agenda that favours the Fulani, the separatist leader questioned the refusal of government to arrest bandits terrorising the country.
“I condemn in totality the pathetic attempt to arrest Sunday Igboho earlier today. This is yet another deliberate act of provocation by the Fulani Caliphate. No #Fulani mass murderer, Miyetti Allah or bandit is under arrest. #Nigeria is on the brink! Igboho should not be touched,” Kanu said in a post on his Twitter’s handle on Friday.
Igboho had last month issued a quit notice to Fulani herdsmen living in part of Oyo State following their alleged involvement in kidnapping and other criminal activities.
He was also said to have confronted some Fulani herdsmen in Ogun State.
Recall that there was a 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 of the incident, Igboho, who was topless, was seen with his men daring the security operatives to “do their worst” before they drove off.
