Human Rights LAwyer, Femi Falana, SAN, has urged the Nigerian Police not to arrest popular Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, otherwise known as Sunday Igboho.
In an interview with PUNCH Online programme, The Roundtable on Friday, Falana said, “I urge the police not to venture to arrest Mr Sunday Igboho because in this same country, when others issued quit notices to other nationalities in the past, they were not arrested.”
Recall that the Presidency had said the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, ordered the arrest of Igboho for giving Fulani herdsmen accused of perpetrating sundry crimes in Oyo State an ultimatum to exit the state.
But Falana opined that “there is no way the police can choose who to arrest in this nature.”
According to him, “Almajiris have been deported, beggars have been deported, the poor and destitute have been deported and the government never raised any issue.”
