In his Statement Fani Kayode sends a serious warning note of advice to president of Nigeria Muhammad Buhari over the news that Sunday Igboho will be killed or arrested by the Buhari’s administration for telling the Fulani herdsmen to leave part of Yoruba Land in South west.
The former President Jonathan political aid said it is a dangerous and serious action if Buhari the Nigeria president try to kill Sunday Igboho,he further said the when the northerners demanded that Igbo should vacate the north nothing was done to it .
Fani Wrote as thus :
I advise the FG to tread softly because Sunday has the full support of the Yoruba nation because he has spoken for the people. Kill him & you make him a martyr for Oduduwa, arrest him & you make him the greatest hero of the Yoruba since independence. Whichever way he wins.
The way to solve the problem is to arrest the herdsmen that kill & kidnap our people in the SW & not to arrest or kill those that are standing up & speaking for their victims. Sunday did not ask for ALL Fulanis to leave SW. He asked for the killers, terrorists& kidnappers amongst them to leave Ibarapa & the Yoruba people LOVE him for it. Is that a crime?
As long as he maintains the peace & does not indulge in or encourage any violence I do not see what he has done wrong? In 1999 when Gani Adams was rising up I identified him as a young man to watch. I wrote an essay about him and I said his courage would take him far. I was proved right. Today I identify Sunday Igboho who has stood up against wickedness, injustice & apartheied in our land when other Yoruba leaders were too timid to stand. I commend his courage.
