Igboho was said to be on his way to see Afenifere chieftain, Pa Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos when the joint team, numbering about 40 ambushed him and wanted to arrest him on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

His supporters reportedly resisted his arrest as commotion ensued between his supporters and the joint team which sought to arrest him by force.

Critic, Femi Fani-Kayode confirmed that the joint security team sought to violently arrest Igboho while on his way to Lagos to see Pa Adebanjo.

According to him, he just spoke with Igboho who confirmed that there was a violent attempt to arrest him by a joint team of soldiers, DSS and the police.

Fani-Kayode condemned the attempted arrest of Igboho, saying it would be very dangerous to do so, adding that if the security operatives wanted to see him, all they needed to do was to simply invite him and not to lay ambush for him.

In his words: “I just spoke to my brother Sunday Igboho. He told me there was a violent attempt to arrest him this afternoon by a joint team of soldiers, DSS operatives and policemen numbering about 40 on the Ibadan/Lagos Expressway whilst he was on his way to see Baba Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos.”

  1. Are you normal at all? You are insulting elderly people for nothing. This is the same trick carried out by abacha when he sent killers after Baba Abraham Adesanya and his supporters turned around to be blaming NADECO members. You think we dont know your tricks? It will not be well with you and your generation. How can you blame the elders for an action carried out by your own people, the president and his herdsmen. You need to see a psychiatrist.

  2. I celebrate these youths for their bravery. I would have been part of l was there. See our show of force by irresponsible government. Have the Police, DSS call Gumi for questioning or attempt to arrest him? No. But the are after Igboho that is fighting a just cause. Foolish people.

  3. Nigeria is in the sorry situation it is because of Buhari’s wrong choiçes and misconceptions about leadership particularly how to lead a secular nation like Nigeria.

    This is a government that keeps pampering terrorists and keeps on payin terrorists billions whereas the right thing would be to unleash Nigeria’s military might and finish of the terrorists.

    What a government that shields terrorists but seeks to arrest Sunday Igboho for standing up for his people.
    If war comes to Nigeria. Blame it on Buhari. Period.

    In the south west, Sunday Igboho is resisting the injustices going on in Nigeria, just like Nnamdi Kanu is resisting in the south east and Governor Ortom is resisting in the middle belt.

    Buhari”s bad policy of fulanization have put Nigeria on the precipice.

    What a misguided and ethnic leaning government. What an agent of disaffection, disunity and destabilization. What a failed government.

    What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.

  4. A useless and uneducated President. What has Igboho done that you want to arrest him? This is what Nigerians get, when you voted for this clown who is unqualified to be a President. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, nobody with an IQ above room temperature will ever vote for APC again. Buhari has shown himself over and over again to be nothing more than a useless President. Buhari is a monstrous, malignant danger to Nigeria. Most important, he is an embarrassment to the country.

  5. What is the offence of Igboho that they want to arrest him. Today, two sets of students are in the hands of bandits, they didn’t channel their energy to rescue them but want to arrest the one fighting or condemning the killers and kidnappers. This morning we heard that IGP is inviting some traditional rulers in Ondo to come Abuja for killing Fulani’s cow but refused to arrest the people that killed a traditional rulers.Nigeria we hailed there.

  6. I think Pa Adebanjo is being used as a trap for Sunday Oke-Ogun, and if anything funny happens to Sunday, that arugbo’banjo should be held responsible. If all these old fools fail to retire to their graves peacefully, they will be consumed violently because they’re disappointment and embarrassment to the younger generation.
