Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has condemned the early morning attack on Chief Sunday Adeyemo, Igboho’s residence, saying the invasion was a ploy to silent him from expressing his views on the state of the nation.
Besides, he charged the FG to investigate the circumstances surrounding the ugly incident and also bring the perpetrators to book.
Adams, in a statement on Thursday by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, described the attack leading to the death of eight persons and reckless destruction of his property as very unfortunate.
The Yoruba generalissimo said the attack has really exposed the Federal Government, especially, on the spate of insecurity in Nigeria, insisting that the incident was a predetermined ploy to silent Igboho from the struggle for the Yoruba nation, which, according to him, is what many Yorubas both home and abroad want at the moment.
“The attack on Sunday Igboho’s house is most unfortunate. It is a reflection of the fact that our lives as Nigerians are of no values to the government. And the truth is that nobody is safe in this country.
“The recent attack was the second in six months.The first was in January when his Soka resident was razed by unknown arsonists. And up till date,nobody had been apprehended in respect of the ugly incident.
“Those agitating for Yoruba nation have been the targets of this administration and the two attempts at Igboho’s houses within six months cannot be said to be ordinary.They were ploys to cow him and frustrate him,
” We cannot continue to live in fear and trepidations.We cannot continue to live in perpetual crisis where our lives and properties are not secured,” the statement added.
