Police after Sunday Igboho over land grabbing – Petitioner


A real estate agent in Ibadan, Oyo State, Alhaji Waheed Adetunji, said the recent police invitation to Chief Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a. Sunday Igboho has nothing to do with the activist’s agitation for the secession of Yoruba from Nigeria.

Rather, Adetuntunji, it was meant to question him over his involvement in alleged criminal acts bordering on land grabbing.

Providing some documents to reporters, which he said are evidence of his allegations against Ighoho, the complainant said, “We have used every means to get Ighoho arrested over illegal acquisition of a landed property at Idi-Mango village road, Soka area, on Lagos/Ibadan expressway, in Ibadan, but his strong connection with the police in Oyo State is frustrating efforts to get him arrested.

“However, after many failed attempts to arrest lghoho in Ibadan, we sought assistance of the police from the police headquarters in Abuja and they contacted Alagbon Police Station in Lagos to intervene.

“This has led to the prompt arrest of some of Ighoho’s boys and lawyer, but Igboho has been hiding under activism for the emancipation of the Yoruba race as an independent nation right to shield himself from lawful police invitation and prosecution.”
