Igboho is a hero, we must defend him like he defended us – Reno Omokri



Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has condemned the reported arrest of the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

We reported earlier that Igboho was arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night.

A source said that the freedom fighter will be repatriated to Nigeria on Tuesday (today).

According to the source, Igboho had perfected plans to secretly escape from Nigeria through Cotonou and was heading to Germany.

Reacting in a post on his official Facebook page, Omokri described him as a hero and said Nigerians would gather resources to come to the defence of the Yoruba activist.

He wrote; “The reported arrest of Sunday Igboho in Cotonou is unfortunate. He is a hero freedom fighter who defended us.

“We must now repay his good turn and also defend him and gather resources for his legal defence. Igboho deserves the same commitment from us that Buhari has shown and continues to show to killer herdsmen and bandits.

“Buhari has refused to categorise his kinsmen, who shot down a multimillion dollar Nigerian Airforce jet yesterday, as terrorists (they lied that the jet did not crash, but the pilot survived and blew open their lies).

“Yet, he has criminalised one of the few Nigerians brave enough to stand up to killer herdsmen. And that is why I stand with Igboho. Not for secession. But for defending his people”.
