Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has asked Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, and Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yourbaland, Iba Gani Adams, to set up a fundraiser for the recently arrested Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
Reacting to Igboho’s arrest on his verified Facebook page on Tuesday, Omokri charged them to immediately organise the fundraiser to cover Igboho’s legal fees, noting that other politicians in the South West should speak up against Igboho’s arrest
“I am ready to publicly put my money where my mouth is.
“I urge Afenifere and Aare Ona Kakanfo Gani Adams, to openly start a fundraiser for Sunday Igboho’s legal defence.
“Buhari very openly supports killer herdsmen. We should not hide our support for Igboho’s freedom.
“Garba Shehu openly released a statement that Miyetti Allah deserves “respect.” Igboho also deserves respect, if not from the government, then from us, for defending Nigerians from killer herdsmen.
“In fact, any Southwestern politician that remains silent while Buhari is persecuting Igboho must be marked and punished in 2023!” Omokri wrote.
