“Igboho deserves the same commitment from us, that Buhari has shown and continues to show to killer herdsmen and bandits.

“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.
