Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has sounded a note of warning to Oyo State’s new Commissioner of Police, Mrs Ngozi Onadeko, concerning the arrest order of Sunday Igboho.
Igboho, a Yoruba activist whose real name is Sunday Adeyemo, led a group of his followers to chase out Fulani Herdsmen at the Igangan, Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State.
Recall that Governo Seyi Makinde, while receiving Onadeko on Friday ordered the arrest of Igboho, stating that the state will wage war against criminal elements, irrespective of their tribes, religions, or creed.
Speaking as she assumed her role in the state, Mrs Onadeko, said, “We are here to formally tell you that we have resumed duty. We came with the promise that we want to make the lives and property of the people of Oyo State safe and secure. We want the people to go to bed with their eyes closed.”
Reacting to the arrest order, the IPOB leader said: “You are an Igbo woman so I expect you to be reasonable enough to know that Fulani IGP posted you to Oyo to superintend the arrest or possible killing of Yoruba youths in order to ferment enmity between the East and the West at this critical juncture in the history of the liberation of all indigenous peoples across Nigeria, including you and your family.
“I will advise you to resign honourably from your position as a certain Yoruba CP did in Abia State when he declined to order men under his command to open fire on IPOB protesters.
“I am warning you not to do anything likely to jeopardise the safety or well-being of Sunday Ighoho otherwise you and your family will have the might of IPOB to contend with.
“The silly game you people always play will no longer wash with us. Suddenly Fulani has realised that appointing an Igbo woman as Police Commissioner is a good thing because they want to use you. Nothing should happen to Igboho.”
