…warns ‘no harm must befall activist’
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has advised the new Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Mrs Ngozi Onadeko, to resign immediately in order to avoid being used to foment trouble in the South-West.
Kanu also warned Onadeko over a popular Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, saying any harm done to the activist would attract the wrath of IPOB on the police commissioner’s family.
Onadeko’s appointment comes at a time of tension between the indigenes of Igangan, Ibarapa North Local Government Area of the state, and herdsmen.
The tension arose as a result of the alleged destruction of farms, maiming and killing of farmers by herdsmen in communities in the area, which forced Igboho to issue an ultimatum for them to vacate the state.
This led to an order from the Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, for the immediate arrest of the freedom fighter.
But Kanu in his reaction, advised the new Commissioner of Police to resign from her position, saying she was strategically appointed to foment regional enmity.
Kanu, who wrote on Facebook, warned Onadeko to ensure no harm befalls Igboho, otherwise, her family would face consequences from IPOB.
He said, “A warning to Mrs Ngozi Onadeko, the new Igbo Commissioner of Police, Oyo State Command. You are an Igbo woman, so I expect you to be reasonable enough to know that Fulani IGP posted you to Oyo to superintend the arrest or possible killing of Yoruba youths in order to foment enmity between the East and the West at this critical juncture in the history of the liberation of all indigenous peoples across Nigeria, including you and your family.
“I will advice you to resign honourably from your position as a certain Yoruba CP did in Abia State when he declined to order men under his command to open fire on IPOB protesters.
“I am warning you not to do anything likely to jeopardise the safety or well-being of Sunday Ighoho otherwise you and your family will have the might of IPOB to contend with. The silly game you people always play in that #Zoo will no longer wash with us.
“Suddenly Fulani have realised that appointing an Igbo woman as Police Commissioner is a good thing because they want to use you. Nothing should happen to Ighoho.”
