This was recently revealed in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the way the activist was arrested is very sad indeed and the way FG is clamping down agitators can make the government an enemy to the people.
He added that the Federal Government shouldn’t forget that they got into power with a lot of hope and support from the people of the South-West.
His words, “Igboho’s case is gradually exposing FG’s plan to clamp down on all agitators and that is undemocratic, and also capable of turning government to tyranny of the majority, especially, from a government that came to power with a lot of hope and support from the people of the South-West.”
“I think the FG should be fair to the young man because any attempt to trivialize issues of agitations might set this nation on fire.”
“For example, the issue of self determination didn’t come up overnight. It was as a result of the long years of injustice, nepotism, and corruption occasioned by bad leadership.”
“So, the FG will be making a big mistake if it decides to treat agitators of Yoruba nation as common criminals or enemies.”
“Igboho has a right to his freedom. There is nothing bad for him to seek asylum in the Republic of Benin, and he is entitled to seek refuge in a foreign land if he thinks his safety cannot be guaranteed here in Nigeria.”
