After Attempted Arrest, Sunday Igboho Visits Gani Adams in Lagos (Details below)



Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo (Sunday Igboho) held a meeting on Friday with Aare Gani Adams in Lagos following his altercation with security agents who disrupted his trip to Lagos.

The meeting, which held at the Lagos home of Adams, followed on an earlier meeting with elder statesman, Ayo Adebanjo and other Afenifere leaders, including its spokesperson Yinka Odumakin.

Igboho was on his way to Lagos for a scheduled meeting when his vehicle was intercepted along the Lagos Ibadan expressway.

Spokesperson of the New Era faction of the Odua People’s Congress, Akinpelu Adesina, said himself and other members of Yoruba local security and pressure groups were with Igboho during the trip to see Adebanjo in Lagos.

He said, “Although we were caught unawares, we were not unprepared for any eventuality. Sunday Igboho was to meet our father, Ayo Adebanjo, in Lagos, so we got prepared and set out. I can’t really tell the exact time.

“Our journey was smooth until we were stopped and the security men began to harass the entourage asking, ‘Where is the criminal?’ We were in disbelief. When we realised that it was Igboho Osha that they were on the lookout for, there was an exchange of words and the place turned rowdy.

“We called to question their ground for wanting to arrest him. For us, the law enforcement agents were wrong to have put on a show. On what ground would the arrest of Sunday Igboho be, while the killer herders who are wielding dangerous weapons, kidnapping, killing, maiming and extorting our fathers, mothers and sisters still walk free?”

“We are happy that although there was tension at the scene, we were allowed to go without any problem. No gunshot was fired, nobody got hurt and we later proceeded on our journey.”
