‘There's no crime asking for self-determination’ – Activists, agitators, groups condem arrest of Igboho, Kanu
A cross section of well meaning Nigerian People, groups and activists have slammed the Buhari-led administration for arresting Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho.
Press reports that Igboho was arrested on Monday night in Cotonou, Benin Republic, at an airport.
The development has continued to stir divergent reactions on social media with Nigerian People likening Igboho's arrest to that of Nnamdi Kanu in Kenya.
Some Nigerian People wondered how the Buhari-led government has failed to arrest bandits causing insecurity in most parts of the nation but employs all tactics to arrest activists.
They demanded that the government employ the same intelligence used to arrest activists for bandits and Boko haram terrorists to secure the nation.
Some also noted that Igboho's arrest is a clear indication that this government wants war.
Here are some reactions gathered by Press;
@Oduduwa Republic, "Now the case starts.
Sunday Igboho has been arrested in Cotonou.
No more peace in Nigeria. Oduduwa Republic now/Biafra now."
@RenoOmokri, "Any Southwestern politician who remains silent while Buhari persecutes Igboho must be marked and punished in 2023! Garba Shehu openly released a statement that Miyetti Allah deserves "respect". Igboho also deserves respect, if not from the government, then from us.
@ComradeAdeyanju, "If Buhari who overthrew a democratically elected Government can become president years later and be referred to as a hero by some people, then how can Nnamdi Kanu & Sunday Igboho who are only demanding for self determination be treated like criminals?"

@Afenifere," This measures shows that the Federal government is interested in expending energy in dealing with those agitating for their people, much more than putting an end to terrorism and banditry. It is on record that lives running into thousands have been lost to banditry especially in the Northern part of the country while kidnapping is at an alarming rate in the Southern part of the country. Federal government is not putting much effort in this as much as it’s putting on those clamping down on those peacefully agitating for the lives of Nigerian People to be better."
@OhanezeIgbo, "The interceptions of Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu signify that those who promote the consciousness of Nigerian People are detained while the terrorists, bandits, and killer herdsmen are furnished with cover-ups by Northern leadership to destabilize the South for their heinous political purposes.”
