Afenifere, Yoruba socio-political group, has likened embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Ighoho’s decision to flee Nigeria to Moses being taken away from Egypt because of Pharaoh and Prophet Muhammed (S.A.W) leaving Mecca for Medina in order to avoid persecution.
The group said there is nothing wrong with Igboho trying to protect his life.
Afenifere stated this in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Jare Ajayi.
“We recall that Moses had to be taken away from the prying eyes of Pharaoh and his agents in Egypt. Prophet Muhammed (S.A.W) too had to leave his hometown, Mecca for Medina in order to escape persecution,”
“Thus, there is nothing wrong in Igboho seeking a respite first to preserve his life and perhaps to re-strategise.
“What is now regarded as Sunday Igboho travail ought not to occur at all if there had been good governance in Nigeria and people are not harassed without any just cause.
“It is so sad that President Muhammadu Buhari administration is concentrating on hunting and harassing those who are seeking relief from the oppressive situation in Nigeria while shying away from tackling the menaces of kidnapping, terrorism and antics bordering on ethnic cleansing.
“By its conduct, the government is giving people reasons to believe the allegation that it is pursuing a Fulanisation agenda. Harassment of freedom agitators and innocent citizens must stop forthwith.”
