Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode says there was an attempt by security forces to arrest activist Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho on Friday.
“I just spoke to my brother Sunday Igboho. He told me there was a violent attempt to arrest him this afternoon by a joint team of soldiers, DSS operatives & policemen numbering about 40 on the Ibadan/Lagos Expressway whilst he was on his way to see Baba Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos,” he tweeted.
Mr Fani-Kayode condemned the alleged attempt to arrest the activist.
“I condemn this attempt to ambush& abduct him. It is not only reckless but also very dangerous. If the security agencies want to see him all they need to do is to invite him to their office. I am not aware of any crime that he has committed & I urge restraint on all sides.”
Sunday Igboho has been at the forefront of the fight against killer herdsmen in the south-west region.
