IG should invite bandits first, not me – Sunday Igboho


Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, has said that the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, should invite bandits and killer herdsmen first before inviting him.

Igboho said this in response to an invitation he rejected, saying it was done through DHL.

He said he rejected the invitation because the letter taken to him could also contain lethal things, adding that renowned journalist, was killed in a similar circumstance.

In a statement by his spokesman, Olayemi Koiki, he said:

“We would like to tell the international communities and every Nigerian that this morning, 1st of April, 2021, a letter was sent via DHL to Chief Sunday Igboho but the letter was not received by his security operatives.

“Later around 3 pm of the same day, a team of about six men without uniform arrived in a Corolla car and another nine were in police uniform but all were identified as police officers.

“They wanted to see Chief Sunday Igboho with a letter said to have been addressed to him by the Inspector General of Police. Again, the letter was not received by Chief Sunday’s (Igboho’s) security team.

“Chief Sunday would like to know why a letter was sent to him and for what purpose.

“If the IG of police wants to invite him, we would like him to first send the same letter to all the bandits and Boko Haram members killing our mothers and farmers and those kidnapping them.

“Since the IG of police wants to invite him, he should make a public statement addressed to Chief Sunday Igboho.

“We should all remember how letters had been sent to previous Yoruba sons like the late Dele Giwa.”
