Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a Sunday Igboho, Yoruba freedom fighter, said he’s not swayed by security agencies’ attempt to arrest him, adding that the effort to apprehend him on Yorubaland will not succeed.
Igboho said this in an interview with newsmen while reacting to the confrontation between him and security agencies around the Guru Maharaji bus stop along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Sunday, who filed a quit notice to Fulani herdsmen in some part of South-West, agreed to insist that he was never invited before his attempted apprehension.
The Yoruba freedom fighter stated that the Government should focus on apprehending the Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, and call Islamic cleric Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, who have been having a romance with bandits, for questioning.
He said, “I was never invited. They just lay in ambush for me at Guru Maharaji and started shooting. They started shouting, ‘Where is Sunday Igboho?’ I identified myself and asked them what the problem was. They said I was under arrest, and I said, ‘For what? On my father’s land? That was how it degenerated.
“When they noticed how tense everywhere was, they fled. They came in four Hilux vans and a Toyota Land Cruiser. There are bandits operating all over the place, but people like me who are defending our fatherland are the ones you want to arrest. Why?”
Igboho further fumes, “I have not been invited. What have I done to warrant an arrest? Why do they want to arrest me? What have I done?”
When questioned if he would honor a police invitation, he said, “Go and ask them to invite Gumi and Shekau first before disturbing me. Let them face the bandits instead.”
He also said he would not go into hiding, that he’s in the neighborhood. ”I am in the neighborhood. I cannot run,” he confirmed.
Igboho further disclosed that he has returned to his base in Ibadan.
