“South-West Governors Hiding Igboho from Security Operatives – Miyetti Allah

“South-West Governors Hiding Igboho from Security Operatives – Miyetti Allah


One of the umbrella bodies of Nigeria’s Cattle breeders association, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has accused the South-West governors of hiding wanted Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

Igboho went into hiding after the Department of State Services (DSS) on July 1, 2021, raided a residence in Ibadan, Oyo State. During the raid 13 of his assistants were arrested while 2 were killed in a gun battle.

Igboho, a spearhead of the separatist agitation for the Yoruba nation, escaped the raid which turned bloody and was subsequently declared wanted by the secret police on allegations of stockpiling arms to destabilize the country.

The whereabouts of the Yoruba nation agitator have since been unknown.

Speaking on Monday, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore spokesman, Saleh Alhassan, said the DSS should have raided Igboho’s house earlier than it did.

However, Alhassan urged the activist to turn himself into security operatives because he would be forcefully apprehended.

He said, “It is in his own interest if he submits himself peacefully so that he can face justice. Why is he running? Is he not a revolutionary? He should submit himself before they get him because as it is now, he has been declared wanted, he should present himself to the nearest police station.”

The group’s spokesman alleged that the six governours in the South-West region are hiding Igboho.

He said, “All Igboho’s actions are political; he is being used. His godfathers in the South-West should bring him out.

“The security agencies are speaking the language he understands, they will get him. I know the governors are hiding him but the security agents will get him.

“Nigerian as a State has declared him wanted. He is not more than the state. The governors keeping him should produce him.

“He declared a republic; that was a rebellion. How can you be threatening the sovereignty of the (Nigerian) State and you still have the guts to be walking around and be organizing rallies?”

However, Ondo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo, said it is belittling for the governors to respond to the allegation by Miyetti Allah.

When contacted for a reaction to the allegation, Ojogo said, “It is not necessary, absolutely demeaning for elected governors to engage an association in a media banter.”
