'' It would be dangerous, reckless and counterproductive for Buhari to arrest or kill Sunday Igboho''- FFK

Femi Fani-Kayode has said it would be dangerous, reckless and counterproductive of the Buhari-led government to arrest Yoruba activist, Sunda Igboho, who gave a quit notice to Fulani herders in the state.


Reports online claim the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, ordered the Commissioner of Police in Oyo state, Ngozi Onadeko, to arrest Igboho.


Reacting to this development via his Twitter handle, FFK wrote

''It would be dangerous, reckless & counter productive for Buhari to ARREST or KILL Sunday Igboho. When the Northern youths demanded that Igbos should leave the north no-one was arrested. Why should Sunday be arrested or killed for asking KILLER Fulani herdsmen to leave SW?

I advise the FG to tread softly because Sunday has the full support of the Yoruba nation because he has spoken for the people. Kill him & you make him a martyr for Oduduwa, arrest him & you make him the greatest hero of the Yoruba since independence. Whichever way he wins.

The way to solve the problem is to arrest the herdsmen that kill & kidnap our people in the SW & not to arrest or kill those that are standing up & speaking for their victims. Sunday did not ask for ALL Fulanis to leave SW. He asked for the killers, terrorists& kidnappers amongst them to leave Ibarapa & the Yoruba people LOVE him for it. Is that a crime?

As long as he maintains the peace & does not indulge in or encourage any violence I do not see what he has done wrong? In 1999 when Gani Adams was rising up I identified him as a young man to watch. I wrote an essay about him and I said his courage would take him far. I was proved right. Today I identify Sunday Igboho who has stood up against wickedness, injustice & apartheied in our land when other Yoruba leaders were too timid to stand. I commend his courage.''

Fulani: You can’t threaten us with war- Afenifere fires back at ACF


Fulani: You can?t threaten us with war- Afenifere fires back at ACF

Pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, has reacted to the statement released by the Area Consultative Forum, in which they warned the SouthWest governors to stop the attacks on Fulanis in their states as it can lead to reprisal attacks in the North which in the long run can lead to a repeat of the 1966 civil war.


In a statement released by its publicity secretary, Yinka Odumakin, Afenifere said its attention was drawn to the hypocritical tears of the AFCF over clashes in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State occasioned by the ''inimical activities of Fulani herdsmen against indigenous Yoruba people''.


The group frown at ACF's comment warning against a repeat of the 1966 civil war, insisting that the group shouldn't use war to threaten the Yorubas. The statement in part reads

“While we have gone to a great length to sue for peace and have appealed to our pained people to be law-abiding even with the daily provocations of the Fulani and harassment of our people, we frown at the very arrogant and insulting ACF statement, especially their reference to the event of 1966.

We must make it clear to them that they cannot threaten us with a war at this stage as we will not provoke war but never are we going to run for anybody on our land.

We are miffed that a body like ACF that has never shown any remorse over the killing of our people can open their mouths anyhow now because there are consequences for the irresponsible actions of their people.

We advise them to call their criminals to order and not expect our people to sheepishly wait to be killed by those who value cow lives more than human beings.”

We do not want a repeat of 1966 event but if there are people plotting such event again, the rain will be over their heads.”

Capitol rioter denied bail after admitting dragging cop down the stairs


Capitol rioter denied bail after admitting dragging cop down the stairs

Jeffrey Sabol, a geophysicist from Colorado who admitted assaulting an officer during the insurrection which took place at the US Capitol has been denied bail. 


Sabol was denied bail after it was uncovered that he tried to flee to Switzerland after the day of the siege and then in what authorities called a different type of flight effort, attempted suicide. 


Assistant U.S. Attorney Benjamin Gianforti who spoke during a hearing conducted over video conference and phone in U.S. District Court in White Plains, New York on Friday January 22,  said authorities have reason to believe that Sabol may “have assaulted another police officer” with a baton that he is seen wielding during the riot.

Describing the case as “very disturbing,” a federal magistrate Andrew Krause denied bail to the 51-year-old divorced geophysicist with three children.


Krause ordered that Sabol be held without bond on a criminal complaint filed against him in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., calling him a danger to the community and a risk of flight.

The defendant was ordered removed from the Southern District of New York and will be extradited to the District of Columbia for continued prosecution. This transfer will not be immediate because the U.S. Marshals Service is currently unaware of when safe transfer will be possible due to the ongoing public health crisis surrounding the still-raging coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.


Saabol’s first appearance in front of the D.C. District Court will occur digitally on February 5.
