Yoruba liberties activist, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, has announced that he will never be intimidated by the recent attempt by the police, the army, and the Department of State Services to arrest him, saying any exertion to apprehend him on Yorubaland will flunk, aso Naija reports.
Igboho asserted this during an interview with Saturday PUNCH on Friday while reacting to the face-off between him and security agents around the Guru Maharaji bus stop along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The Yoruba rights activist, who has been in the news for serving a quit notice on Fulani herdsmen in some parts of the South-West, said he was never invited before they attempted to arrest him.
Igboho, therefore, asserted that he did not know why he was being targeted. He advised the Federal Government to focus on capturing Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, and invite Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, who has been joining bandits in current times.
He said, “I was never invited. They just lay in ambush for me at Guru Maharaji and started shooting. They started shouting, ‘Where is Sunday Igboho?’ I identified myself and asked them what the problem was. They said I was under arrest and I said, ‘For what? On my father’s land? That was how it degenerated.
“When they noticed how tense everywhere was, they fled. They came in four Hilux vans and a Toyota Land Cruiser. Bandits are operating all over the place but people like me who are defending our fatherland are the ones you want to arrest. Why?”
