The federal government has been urged to prosecute the acclaimed Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, for an alleged attack on the settlement of the Sarikin Fulani of Igangan, Alhaji Salihu AbdulKadir.
The association said:
“The GADFAN, therefore, calls on the federal and Oyo state governments to ensure that justice is done to Alhaji Salihu AbdulKadir and his people by way of not only ensuring that Igboho and his boys are apprehended and brought to book, but that Sarkin Fulani and his people be compensated and returned to their homes.”
The group said it will take legal steps to unsure justice is done over the matter if the government fails to take action.
Igboho had recently said Yoruba is no longer part of Nigeria, calling on people of the ethnic group residing in the north to go back home.
However, Kunle Olajide, the secretary-general of the YCE said Igboho does not represent the Yoruba people in his call for secession, The Cable reported.
Falana in a statement on Sunday, April 4, said the federal government should address pressing issues such as the worsening insecurity in the country instead of seeking to detain the activist, The Punch reported.
