Attempted arrest: Why I petitioned IGP – Sunday Igboho
Popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho says he has petitioned the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu over his attempted arrest by security agents on Friday.
Igboho described the attempted arrest, which he said occurred at Guru Maharaj Bus-Stop on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, as an assassination attempt.
However, he vowed not to be intimidated in his “noble cause” of defending the Yoruba race against external aggressors.
Recall that Igboho’s ordeal started after he issued a one-week ultimatum to some Fulani herdsmen in Igangan community, Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Ondo State.
“It is a pity that some elements, within the Yoruba race, are colluding with these evil people to threaten my life.
“Should we be fighting for the cause of Yoruba race and some elements, within us, are threatening me?
“I am a lover of Yoruba race and I am fighting a noble cause. We have much been cheated and this is the time to fight for our rights. Yoruba should be treated with love, not with disdain.
“This fight is not for my personal gain, but for the emancipation of the Yoruba people.
“I might not have occupied any important position, but I am a force to be reckoned with. I am a noble leader and the governor should appreciate what I am doing.
“I have reported to the appropriate quarters. I have filed a petition to the Inspector-General of Police and I must surely get justice. I should be appreciated by all and sundry in Yorubaland and not be intimidated.
“I am not doing this for money; I am rich, I have everything I want in life. But the love I have for the Yoruba masses led me into this.
“I can lay down my life to ensure that Yorubaland is peaceful,” Igboho told Vanguard.
