“We must gather resources for his legal defence” – Omokri tells supporters of arrested Igboho
Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has urged supporters of arrested Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho to raise money for his legal defence.
Recall that Igboho was reportedly arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic on Monday while making plans to flee to Germany.
He is expected to be brought back to Nigeria on Tuesday.
Reacting in a Facebook post on Tuesday morning, Omokri advised against abandoning the separatist leader.
He wrote, “The reported arrest of Sunday Igboho in Cotonou is unfortunate.
“He is a hero freedom fighter who defended us. We must now repay his good turn and also defend him by gathering resources for his legal defence.
“Igboho deserves the same commitment from us, that Buhari has shown and continues to show to killer herdsmen and bandits.
“Buhari has refused to categorise his kinsmen, who shot down a multimillion-dollar Nigerian Airforce jet yesterday, as terrorists (they lied that they jet crashed, but the pilot survived and blew open their lies).
“ 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.”
