The President of the Women Arise and Centre for Change, Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin on Wednesday in reaction to the news of Igboho’s arrest in Benin Republic said the Yoruba nation’s agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, otherwise known as Sunday Igboho, cannot be guaranteed safety or justice if handed over to the Nigerian government.
Okei-Odumakin explains that, “It is not debatable that Igboho will come to grief if he is extradited to Nigeria under the prevailing circumstances.”
She further called on the authorities of the Republic of Benin, a democracy and country under law, to speedily process and grant Igboho’s asylum application.
“It is most unfortunate that a Nigerian government that treats with kid gloves terrorists of the hues of Boko Haram, herdsmen, and bandits ravaging the entire Northern Nigeria applies the sledge hammer on law-abiding citizens protesting against such terrorists and their wanton destruction of lives and property.
“The telltale signs of military dictatorship are rearing their ugly heads again under a supposedly democratic government of President Muhammadu Buhari,” she said.
