Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has reacted to the attempted plan by officers of the Nigeria Police Force and men of the Department of State Services to arrest him on Friday.
Igboho while speaking on the development called on the Federal Government to channel it’s energy towards arresting Boko Haram leader, Ibrahim Shekau and Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, who has been meeting with bandits.
The Yoruba activist stated this during an interview with Punch while reacting to the face-off between him and security agents around the Guru Maharaji bus stop along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
He disclosed that security agency had never invited him before they attempted to arrest him.
When asked if he would honour a police invitation, Igboho said, “Go and ask them to invite Gumi and Shekau first before disturbing me. Let them face the bandits instead.”
He further stated that he would not run, adding that he had returned to his base in Ibadan.
When asked if he would go into hiding, he said, “What for? I am in the neighbourhood. I cannot run.”
He added that his bank account was initially frozen but the restriction was lifted recently.
He said he had done nothing wrong but fight for the rights of his people.
