You can’t arrest Igboho Says Falana


Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has warned the Nigeria Police Force not to arrest popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, well known as Sunday Igboho.


Falana made this known at on online Interview Programme,“I urge the police not to venture to arrest Mr Sunday Igboho because in this same country, when others issued quit notices to other nationalities in the past, they were not arrested,” .


The Presidency had said the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, ordered the arrest of Igboho for giving Fulani herdsmen accused of perpetrating sundry crimes in Oyo State an ultimatum to exit the state.


At the expiration of the seven-day ultimatum, Igangan residents in the Ibarapa area of the state, emboldened by Igboho’s presence, had ejected the Seriki Fulani, Abdulkadri Saliu, and his herders out of the rustic tow


But Falana said “there is no way the police can choose who to arrest in this nature.”


According to him, “Almajiris have been deported, beggars have been deported, the poor and destitute have been deported and the government never raised any issue.”
