A basic liberties legal advisor, Femi Falana, has cautioned the Nigeria Police Force not to capture famous Yoruba rights lobbyist, Sunday Adeyemo, notable as Sunday Igboho.
“I encourage the police not to dare to capture Mr. Sunday Igboho in light of the fact that in this equivalent country when others gave quit notification to different ethnicities previously, they were not captured,” Falana said
The Presidency had said the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, requested the capture of Igboho for giving Fulani herders blamed for executing various wrongdoings in Oyo State a final offer to leave the state.
At the termination of the seven-day final proposal, Igangan occupants in the Ibarapa zone of the state, encouraged by Igboho’s essence, had launched out the Seriki Fulani, Abdulkadri Saliu, and his herders out of the natural town.
In any case, Falana said, “it is extremely unlikely the police can pick who to capture in this nature.”
As indicated by him, “Almajiris have been ousted, homeless people have been extradited, poor people and down and out have been expelled and the public authority never raised any issue.”
Falana, who had prior said Igboho reserved no option to give the excursion request to the herders, said his situation on such issue has been predictable, adding that he had criticized people who gave quit notification to non-indigenes before.
The rights attorney said he doesn’t uphold wilderness equity however the residents should not bring laws into their hands.
“The public authority has bombed the individuals however the individuals can be prepared to make the public authority alive to its obligation of securing lives and properties,” he said.
“It must that stage when each local area needs to coordinate its security since we can presently don’t rely upon the public authority,” the senior backer submitted.
