Why 10,000 Igbohos may spring up – Pastor Tunde Bakare

2 Min Read

Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare says many persons like Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho will spring up as long as killers and kidnappers are not brought to justice.

Bakare, who spoke on Tuesday, said he spoke with and appealed to Igboho not to allow the Yoruba-Fulani face-off in Ibarapaland of Oyo State to degenerate into violence.

He added that he advised the Yoruba activist to allow for alternative means of resolving the problem.

However, the cleric said such appeals might be difficult to heed when those that have continued to kidnap and kill people are not brought to justice.

Bakare, who spoke in an Instagram Live Chat with ace journalist, Dele Momodu said, “Let us not throw legal semantics with this issue.

“When people are being slaughtered and being killed and this man is reeling out the names of those who are killed and nobody has disproved that they were truly killed, whoever killed those people if they are not brought to book, then, you cannot be asking a man who is saying I want justice to say he is wrong.

“Two wrongs don’t make a right, I am not asking him to go kill anybody, I’m not asking him to take laws into his hands but I am saying would you say that those who are killed should just die for nothing?

“Where were the police and security agencies when those people were being killed? If their killers were not brought to book, we could have more than 10,000 Sunday Igbohos in one day if care is not taken.”
