The Senior Pastor of the Worksword of God Church, Olabisi Gabriel Adegboye, has warned the Muhammadu Buhari-led government following the arrest of Sunday Igboho.
The popular cleric gave the warning in a post on his Facebook page on Wednesday.
He stated that the Nigerian government and security agencies cannot justify the attack on Sunday Igboho’s home.
“He [Igboho] held rally in Osogbo, Ibadan, Ogun, Ondo and Ado Ekiti without any breaking down of law and no casualty whatsoever at anytime. He claimed to be defending his people against rape, murder and destruction of their farm and vegetations,” Adegboye said.
“To proof this, when he heard that DSS and Soldiers were in his compound, he retreated, withdrew himself to avoid confrontation with law enforcement agents of the Country.
“I want the government of the Federation to always justify it’s action before descending on any Citizen of your Country.
“Why DSS, why? Alfa Gumi that is giving covering and interacting with the bandits is yet to be arrested.
“Wakili the terrorist, who was arrested by members of OPC is yet to be arraigned in court nor his house attacked by DSS.
“I know that prevention is better than cure, yet the measure taken was anti Democratic invasion. Let sleeping dog my dear DSS.
“I suggest giving a sound of warning through the Yoruba leaders of thought and their Royal fathers before carrying out an attack on someone who is representing the Yoruba race peacefully. God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria. God bless His Excellency.
“Let peace reign in Nigeria and stop using violence to correct your citizens.”
Naija News had earlier reported that Sunday Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
Igboho alongside his wife, Mrs Ropo Adeyemo, was arrested at the Cotonou Cadjehoun Airport on Monday night while attempting to flee to Germany.
Igboho was arrested by the security forces in Benin Republic about three weeks after the Department of State Services declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms, an allegation he has since denied.
