Igboho and Kanu
Nigeria's Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has been called out by the Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele.
He accused Mohammed of misinforming Nigerians while reacting to the attack on the home of Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho and also the rearrest of IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu.
Speaking on Wednesday, Ayodele said security operatives should go after bandits like it did with Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho.
Primate Ayodele stated this while berating for celebrating the rearrest of Kanu.
He accused Mohammed of always celebrating unnecessary things and misinforming Nigerians on the issue of security.
In a statement sent to DAILY POST by his media office, the clergyman said “corruption and taking sides” is stopping security agents from arresting bandits.
He said: ‘’Nigeria has a wrong minister of information who misinforms Nigerians because he celebrates what is not, every little thing, he goes out talking. He needs to give us an update on bandits, the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu that he was celebrating has nothing to do with Nigeria, whether you arrest him or not, it has not brought peace to the nation, why have they not arrested bandits all these while? If the government doesn’t have information about them then what are we celebrating?
‘’It feels that our security operatives are taking sides, if they can successfully arrest Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho, what is stopping them from going after bandits? Whatever is good for the goose is good for the gander, if those behind secession can be arrested and attacked, what’s stopping them from going after those sponsoring bandits too.
‘’Our security has not lived up to expectation, there is corruption in the security network if not they should have arrested those behind banditry.’’
