The pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has reacted to calls to emulate Igbo leaders and beg President Muhammadu Buhari for the release of the Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho who is currently in the custody of the authority of Benin Republic.
The General-Secretary of the group, Sola Ebiseni, Afenifere ina statement said there is no basis to beg the president, stressing that the Oduduwa Republic agitator committed no crime.
“We do not have to beg the President to release Sunday Igboho. Sunday Igboho did not commit any offence whatsoever; that’s our position.
“Those who went to invade his house were terrorists in Nigerian security uniform and they have no right whatsoever and that has been tested in a court of competent jurisdiction. Igboho has been absolved and the government was visited with N20bn worth of damages.
“In spite of the impunity of the Buhari government, we insist that Nigeria shall not be governed except by the rule of law,” the statement added.
