Oyogist has learned that, the Miyetti Allah association has claimed that South-West governors are “hiding” Yoruba activist Sunday Igboho.
Recall the Department of State Services on July 1, 2021, confirmed it raided Igboho’s Ibadan residence in Oyo State, and killed two of the activist’s associates in a “gun duel”.
Speaking in an interview Monday, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore spokesman, Saleh Alhassan, advised Igbohoto turn himself in to security operatives because he would be forcefully apprehended.
He said, “It is in his (Igboho) own best 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.
“All his (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 they (security agents) will get him.
“The (Nigerian) 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 organising rallies?”
