- Mohammed Adamu has been asked to prioritise inviting criminals
- The call was made by Sunday Igboho in reaction to the invitation extended to him by the police
- Meanwhile, it is believed that the IGP is under pressure to arrest him
Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho has sent a message to the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
The message is this: Before you can send an invitation letter to me, send the same letter to all the bandits and Boko Haram members killing people and assaulting women first.
This followed the invitation sent to him by the police.
According to The Punch, a letter was sent to him via courier service while another was brought to his residence by about 15 policemen.
The newspaper reports that Igboho's spokesman Olayomi Koiki who disclosed this in a statement said the letter was rejected.
He said Igboho's security team refused to accept the letter, citing fear for his safety.
“Chief Sunday would like to know why a letter was sent to him and for what purpose. If the IG of Police wants to invite him, we would like him to first send the same letter to all the bandits and Boko Haram members killing our mothers and farmers and those kidnapping them.
“Since the IG of Police wants to invite him, he should make a public statement addressed to Chief Sunday Igboho. We should all remember how a letter was sent to the late Dele Giwa.”
Meanwhile, there are reports that presure is on the IGP to arrest Igboho or how to contain him over his demand for the breaking up of Nigeria.
Going further, the news outlet added that the police are being careful not to upset the delicate security situation in the South-West, which may become aggravated if Igboho is forcefully arrested.
In another report, Legit.ng reported that the Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE) has distanced itself from the secessionist call being championed by Sunday Adeyemo, a Yoruba youth leader popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
Igboho had recently said Yoruba is no longer part of Nigeria, calling on people of the ethnic group residing in the north to go back home.
However, Kunle Olajide, the secretary-general of the YCE said Igboho does not represent the Yoruba people in his call for secession.
The politician who was a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) told Channels TV on Wednesday, March 24, that it would be unwise for security agents to arrest the activist.
He argued that Igboho is fighting for his people and should be left alone.
