Former presidential aide to Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has stated that the arrest of Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho in Cotonou is rather ‘unfortunate’.
WuzupNigeria in the early hours of Tuesday morning had reported that the Yoruba activist was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
It was also well known that Igboho had been declared wanted by the Department of State Services three weeks ago for allegedly stockpiling arms, an allegation he has since denied.
However, reacting to his arrest, Reno Omokri condemned the act, whilst explaining to fellow Nigerians that they all need to stand up and repay Igboho’s good turn as he was and indeed a freedom fighter and a hero who defended Nigerians.
“The reported arrest of Sunday Igboho in Cotonou is unfortunate. He is a hero freedom fighter who defended us. We must now repay his good turn and also defend him and gather resources for his legal defence.
“Igboho deserves the same commitment from us, that Buhari has shown and continues to show to killer herdsmen and bandits.
“Buhari has refused to categorise his kinsmen, who shot down a multimillion-dollar Nigerian Airforce jet yesterday, as terrorists (they lied that they jet crashed, but the pilot survived and blew open their lies).
“Yet, he has criminalised one of the few Nigerians brave enough to stand up to killer herdsmen. And that is why I stand with Igboho. Not for secession. But for defending his people”, he said.
