The minister of Aviation under the Goodluck Jonathan administration, Femi Fani-Kayode, has narrated how gunmen believed to be operatives of the Nigerian Army and Department of State Security attacked Sunday Igboho’s home.
According to the former minister, security operatives surrounded the house, laid siege on the occupants and then attacked, people were killed.
Fani-Kayode said, “Their bodies were taken away whilst a large number of others were arrested. Sunday Igboho’s passport and travel documents were stolen together with his phones, his personal effects, compters and the sum of two million naira.
“There were about 100 soldiers and security agents involved and Sunday managed to escape after his boys shielded him from the bullets.
“They insisted that he should leave whilst they resisted the attack as best as they could and with few numbers. My question is this: what has this man done to deserve this?
“There is nothing he has been asked to do in terms of keeping the peace in the South-West by the Federal Government and the Yoruba elders that he has not done including guaranteeing the security and safety of the local Hausa Fulani population, building bridges, keeping the peace and having dialogue with other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria.”
The former minister further stated that while others are attacking innocent Hausa Fulanis in the South-West, Sunday was protecting them.
He added that the Yoruba activist has shown the greatest respect to Yoruba elders, traditional rulers and leaders and has refused to allow his supporters to terrorise and attack non-Yorubas.
Fani-Kayode said the only enemies he and the Yoruba people have are “the foreign Fulani terrorists in our forests and are kidnapping and killing our people.”.
