‘What About Bandits, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi?’ - Nigerians Slam FG Over Sunday Igboho’s ArrestMany Nigerians have slammed the Federal Government for arresting Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo better known as Sunday Igboho while ignoring the high state of insecurity in the nation.

Igboho was reportedly arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic on Monday night while attempting to flee to Germany.

Recall that Department of State Services (DSS) raided the residence of Igboho in Ibadan, Oyo state on July 1, killing two people, arresting 12 aides but Igboho escaped.

Igboho had planned a ”Yoruba nation rally” in Lagos two days before the raid. The rally was initially suspended but later held with a large number of Yoruba nation agitators demanding for freedom.

Afterwards, DSS declared Igboho wanted, alleging that he was stockpiling weapons and ammunitions.
