Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has revealed why it will never beg President Muhammadu Buhari to release Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, who is currently in prison custody in Benin Republic.

In a statement on Friday signed by its General-Secretary, Sola Ebiseni, Afenifere said there was no basis to beg Buhari to release Igboho because the Yoruba Nation agitator did not any crime.

The group said,
“We do not have to beg the President to release Sunday Igboho. Sunday Igboho did not commit any offence whatsoever; that’s our position. There is no basis for the Yoruba people to beg the Federal Government to release Sunday Igboho

“Those who went to invade his house were terrorists in Nigerian security uniform and they have no right whatsoever and that has been tested in a court of competent jurisdiction. Igboho has been absolved and the government was visited with N20bn worth of damages.

“The deep night invasion of Sunday Igboho’s house with the aim of killing him which resulted in killing of two of his companions and wanton destruction of his property is already adjudged by a court of competent jurisdiction as a most barbaric act of state terrorism with the sum of N20bn in damages.”

“In spite of the impunity of the Buhari government, we insist that Nigeria shall not be governed except by the rule of law,” the statement said.

Afenifere stated this while reacting to calls by prominent Yoruba individuals and groups urging it to emulate Igbo leaders and approach President Buhari to plead for the release of Igboho.

Good to hear. It is wrong to go and beg the president to interfere with due legal process. PMB will never fall sucker for such stunt. He won't interfere.
