A Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has insisted that the police should first arrest the Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, and Islamic cleric Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, before coming for him.

"Police Should First Arrest Sheikh Gumi And Shekau Before Disturbing Me" - Sunday Igboho 3

Igboho stated this during an interview with Punch on Friday, after a combined team of security operatives attempted to arrest him along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

KanyiDaily had reported how Igboho was on Friday ambushed by a joint team of security operatives, while on his way to Lagos to visit Chief Ayo Adebanjo, a Yoruba leader and an elder stateman.

Reacting to the face-off between him and security agents, Igboho said he will not be intimidated by the by the police, adding that any effort to arrest him on Yorubaland will fail.

Igboho, however, insisted that the police should first invite Shekau and Sheikh Gumi, who has been meeting with bandits in recent times, before coming for him whose only crime was “defending our fatherland”.

“I was never invited. They just lay in ambush for me at Guru Maharaji and started shooting. They started shouting, ‘Where is Sunday Igboho?’ I identified myself and asked them what the problem was. They said I was under arrest and I said, ‘For what? On my father’s land? That was how it degenerated.

“When they noticed how tense everywhere was, they fled. They came in four Hilux vans and a Toyota Land Cruiser. There are bandits operating all over the place but people like me who are defending our fatherland are the ones you want to arrest. Why?”

When asked if the police had invited him, he said, “I have not been invited. What have I done to warrant an arrest? Why do they want to arrest me? What have I done?”

On whether he would honour a police invitation if invited, Igboho said, “Go and ask them to invite Gumi and Shekau first before disturbing me. Let them face the bandits instead.”

When asked if he would go into hiding, he said, “What for? I am in the neighbourhood. I cannot run.” He added that he had returned to his base in Ibadan.

Igboho told Punch that his bank account was initially frozen but that the restriction was lifted recently. He said he had done nothing wrong by fighting for the rights of his people.

 

KanyiDaily recalls that Igboho had in January given Fulani herdsmen in Ibarapa area of Oyo State seven days ultimatum to vacate the area, blaming the leadership of the Fulani for being behind the rising insecurity in the state.

The Yoruba activist also visited Ogun State after soldiers allegedly escorted herdsmen to graze in some villages in the Yewa North Local Government Area of the state and brutalised some residents in defence of the herders.
