A Nigerian activist and ex-presidential aide, Reno Omokri has come to the defence of Yoruba agitator, Sunday Igboho. This is following his alleged arrest in Benin.
Omokri called on Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere and Aare Ona Kakanfo, Gani Adams, to “openly start a fundraiser for Sunday Igboho’s legal defence”.
Recall that Igboho, the Yoruba activist was reportedly arrested on Monday night at an airport in Cotonou while attempting to travel to Germany.
Reno, who earlier condemned the arrest, said he is ready to donate for Igboho’s defence, alleging that President Muhammadu Buhari had also indicated “support for killer herdsmen”.
He made the remark in a post on his official Facebook page.
The post reads, “I am ready to publicly put my money where my mouth is. I urge Afenifere and Aare Ona Kakanfo Gani Adams, to OPENLY start a fundraiser for Sunday Igboho’s legal defence. Buhari very openly supports killer herdsmen.
“We should not hide our support for Igboho’s freedom. Garba Shehu openly released a statement that Miyetti Allah deserves “respect”. “Igboho also deserves respect, if not from the government, then from us, for defending Nigerians from killer herdsmen. In fact, any Southwestern politician that remains silent while Buhari is persecuting Igboho must be marked and punished in 2023!”
