Fayose, Seyi Makinde

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has warned Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde against any plan to arrest activist, Sunday Igboho.

Recall that the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu directed the Oyo State Police Commissioner, Ngozi Onadeko to arrest Igboho and transfer him to Abuja on Saturday.

He expressed that arresting Igboho would escalate tension in the South-West region.

The former Governor queried why Igboho would be arrested, saying northern governors had a dialogue with terrorists.

He wrote on his Twitter page:

“Gov Seyi Makinde should rather use dialogue and persuasion instead of escalating tension in his own State by calling for the arrest of Sunday Adeyemo or anyone at this time.

“If FG and some governors could ‘dialogue’ with Boko Haram terrorists, Gov Makinde calling all stakeholders to a round-table discussion will not be a misplaced action.

Any attempt to arrest anyone will cause further threat to the already fragile peace in the West and the country as a whole. Above all, any unchecked escalation may lead to a state of emergency.”
