Declare amnesty for Sunday Igboho, Nnamdi Kanu — Ladoja tells FG

The former Governor of Oyo State, Rashidi Ladoja, has asked the Federal Government to grant amnesty to Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho; and leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Ladoja stated this while addressing journalists in his Bodija residence on Tuesday.

Ladoja said, “Federal government has declared amnesty for Boko Haram, they should also declare amnesty for Igboho and the IPOB leader.

“Just like Kanu, to some people, Sunday Igboho has also become a leader, people are agitating for what they believe in. Yoruba leaders including the Alaafin of Oyo have been complaining about atrocities committed by suspected herdsmen and nothing has been done to it till now.

“Boko Haram members were arrested a year ago by the government and have been released to the Borno State government.

“Sunday Igboho was created in the context of killings in Ibarapa axis of Oyo State. Nobody has been arrested for it and even if they were arrested, they were later released. That is why people resorted to self-help.”

Earlier, Biafran separatist leader Nnamdi Kanu had been arrested and brought back to Nigeria after four years on the run.

Kanu heads the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, which agitates for a separate Biafran state for ethnic Igbos in southeast Nigeria.

Kanu’s trial for “terrorism” has been set for later this month.
