Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, on Tuesday, berated the Federal Government for hunting secessionist agitators in the country.

According to the group, insecurity would have been nipped in the bud if the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration had treated bandits and terrorists the way it has been treating Yoruba Nation activist Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho; and leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Afenifere ‘s National Publicity Secretary, Jare Ajayi, made this known in a statement issued on Tuesday on the group’ s reaction to the arrest of Igboho in Benin Republic and his impending extradition to Nigeria.

The federal government, through INTERPOL, arrested Sunday Igboho and his wife, who is a German citizen, on Monday night at an airport in Benin Republic, one of Nigeria’s neighbouring countries in the West African sub-region.

Igboho was arrested while trying to catch a flight to Germany with his wife.

Ajayi however noted that the news of Igboho’s arrest came as a surprise but the group is still studying the situation before making a formal statement as details of the arrest is still vague, adding that security agencies appear to be more active in hunting those who are peacefully agitating for the rights and better deals for their people than they appear to be in dealing with bandits and terrorists.
