The Seriki Fulani of Ibarapaland, Alhaji Saliu Abdulkadir, has said that he is against the release of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho.
Recall that Igboho who fled Nigeria after the Department of State Services, DSS, declared him wanted was arrested at Cardinal Bernardin International Airport, Cotonou while on his way to Germany in July 2021.
Alhaji Saliu Abdulkadir, while speaking said he opposes Igboho’s release due to his daring nature.
The Seriki Fulani had relocated to Ilorin, Kwara State after Igboho issued an eviction notice to Fulanis in Igangan.
Abdulkadir lamented that Igboho carried out his eviction notice without relevant authority challenging him adding that as a Nigerian, one has the right to live any where in the country.
He also said that criminals are everywhere irrespective of tribe or race.
He said: “For those seven days, the state government sent 14 police officers to us and they were guiding us but the police officers were overpowered by Sunday Igboho’s men. This is why I don’t support the call for the release of Igboho.
“I am sure he must be regretting his actions now. Any Nigerian can live in any part of the country and I have always said that there are criminals everywhere. There are criminals among Yoruba just like we have among the Fulani people. This is where we expected the government to come in and fish out those who are criminally minded”.
