Focus on Arresting Gumi, Shekau Before Chasing Me, Igboho Tells FG

Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, has told the President Muhammadu Buhari government to channel its energy towards arresting Boko Haram leader, Ibrahim Shekau, and Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, who has been holding meetings with bandits.

Igboho said this in an interview with the Punch on Friday after a reported failed attempt by security operatives to arrest him around the Guru Maharaji bus stop along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

When asked if he would honour a police invitation, Igboho said, “Go and ask them to invite Gumi and Shekau first before disturbing me. Let them face the bandits instead.”

Igboho also said he would not run, adding that he had returned to his base in Ibadan.

When asked if he would go into hiding, he said, “What for? I am in the neighbourhood. I cannot run.”

Igboho told this newspaper that his bank account was initially frozen but the restriction was lifted recently.

He said he had done nothing wrong but fight for the rights of his people.
