Igboho currently wanted by security operatives over seccession agitations
Former presidential spokesperson Reno Omokri has defended Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho saying he obeyed the federal government order’s to carry arms for protection.
Omokri in a tweet wrote: “What I do not understand about this Sunday Igboho case is this: Buhari’s Defence Minister, told us to defend ourselves from bandits and killer herdsmen.
“Sunday Igboho has done exactly that. Now they want to arrest Igboho for obeying their own directive to Nigerians?”

It would be recalled that Minister of Defence, Maj. Gen. Bashir Magashi (rtd) had in February said Nigerians should not be cowards but should defend themselves against bandits and killer herdsmen.
The minister had noted that bandits sometimes carried out their operations with a few rounds of ammunition to cause fear, hence Nigerians should jettison fear and defend themselves.
Magashi had said: “It is the responsibility of everybody to keep alert and to find safety when necessary. But we shouldn’t be cowards.
“I don’t know why people are running from minor things like that. They should stand and let these people know that even the villagers have the competency and capabilities to defend themselves.”
