A former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has reacted to the reported arrest of Yoruba nation agitator, Sundday Igboho.
He was said to have been arrested in Benin Republic on Monday night, while allegedly trying to travel to Germany.
Omokri saluted Igboho as someone who defends his people and thuse deserves support.
He noted ”The reported arrest of Sunday Igboho in Cotonou is unfortunate. He is a hero freedom fighter who defended us. We must now repay his good turn and also defend him and gather resources for his legal defence.
“Igboho deserves the same commitment from us, that Buhari has shown and continues to show to killer herdsmen and bandits. Buhari has refused to categorise his kinsmen, who shot down a multimillion dollar Nigerian Airforce jet yesterday, as terrorists (they lied that they jet crashed, but the pilot survived and blew open their lies).
“Yet, he has criminalised one of the few Nigerians brave enough to stand up to killer herdsmen. And that is why I stand with Igboho. Not for secession. But for defending his people.”
