Arrest Sunday Igboho for treason – MACBAN tells Tinubu

By Grace Chigbu

The call for the arrest and prosecution of Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemi, widely known as Igboho, has escalated as the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) urges President Bola Tinubu to take action.

 

In a recent statement, MACBAN drew parallels between Igboho’s actions and those of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), emphasizing the need for consistent application of the law.

 

MACBAN’s National President, Baba Othman Ngelzarma, condemned Igboho’s recent remarks advocating for the expulsion of Fulani herders from the Southwest. Ngelzarma labeled Igboho’s statement as unlawful and tantamount to treason, echoing concerns over national security and unity.

 

“We call on the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR) and relevant security agencies to arrest and prosecute Sunday Igboho for making this unlawful statement that amounts to treason because he is asking for the actualization of Oduduwa nation,” Ngelzarma stated.

 

Ngelzarma’s statement comes in the wake of Igboho’s return to Nigeria after a period of detention in Benin Republic. Igboho has been vocal about the alleged atrocities committed by Fulani herders, particularly accusing them of targeting farmers in the Southwest.

 

However, MACBAN’s stance underscores the deep-seated tensions between various ethnic groups in Nigeria, particularly amidst calls for secession and the quest for self-determination.

 

With the spotlight on Igboho’s activities and statements, the debate over freedom of expression versus national security interests continues to be a contentious issue in Nigeria’s socio-political landscape. As the nation grapples with these challenges, the call for legal action against Igboho reflects the complexities and sensitivities surrounding ethnic relations and governance in Nigeria.
