#Opinion: Former Ogun Gubernatorial Candidate Denounce Attempt To Assassinate Sunday Igboho
OGBENI LANRE BANJO, FORMER GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE IN OGUN STATE DENOUNCED ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE CHIEF SUNDAY IGBOHO, THE EXTERMINATION OF THE LIFES OF SOME HIS LIEUTENANTS AND KIDNAPPING OF HIS FAMILY MEMBERS
From the way the Buhari administration handled the Endsars non-violent protesters waiving the flags of Nigeria, we know that sniffing life out of citizens whose lives he swore to protect is its trademark. It is not new that the Nigerian government hired international terrorists to murder her own citizens. Life was snuffed out of Chief M.K.O. Abiola in the presence of International terrorists.
When the government institutionalized terrorism by encouraging non-Nigerian military to wear military uniform to attack her own citizens in unholy hours, vandalizing vehicles, destroying properties and stealing in uncivilized manner, it entrenches terrorism.
Such government inculcates the act of terrorism in her citizens and it would have no morality to denounce Boko Haram whom she admitted into the Nigerian military once supposedly repented.
I denounced the institutionalization of terrorism and attempt to kill Sunday Igboho who has been exercising his right in a nonviolent manner. I urge all democrats, those who cherish life, whether they support the position of Sunday Igboho or not and those who do not support Yoruba nation to rise and speak up.
Former president Olusegun Obasanjo, can definitely not moralize on General Muhammadu Buhari because of his own records in Odi and several shoot on sight orders.
However, God has spared his life to see the results of ruling Nigeria as a military and civilian. In the spirit of seeking forgiveness, he should summon courage to speak up and condemn killing all over the nation including this one. He should rise to condemn this disgrace of our nation.
General Ibrahim Babangida who is earning the wages of his own sins should also speak out. I urge former President Jonathan who has no records of stinking brutalization of his fellow citizens to speak up and discontinue representing this brutal administration.
The governors should also denounce this despicable act which dwarfs their status in the comity of Nations. Failure to do this would signal appreciation of this wicked and callous attack and commission of injustice.
The governors of the Southwestern states should speak out because a reaction would affect them the most.
REACTION TO THE LAGOS STATE COMMISSIONER OF POLICE’S WARNING AGAINST PEACEFUL RALLY
Ogbeni Banjo condemned the unlawful warning of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, that no rally will be allowed and his connection of the Yoruba Nation organization to the death of a follower of Elewe-Omo in Ibadan.
What a laughable assertion? Igboho lives in Ibadan. The Elewe Omos live in Ibadan, and they have not attacked Igboho in Ibadan.
That the Endsars protest snowballed into crises was stoked by the government Odumosu represents not by the protesters. Nigerians have every right to assemble and it is his duty to protect them.
The Yoruba nation’s struggle is for a better nation for him and his children.
He cannot become the IG as a Southerner.
One might ask where Tunde Sobulo is today. He was used to annihilate members of the Odu’a Peoples Congress years ago.
Well some ignorant governors who accord the likes of Col Kunle Togun the opportunity to lead the South-Western Security Network codenamed ‘Amotekun’ in Oyo State may give him a job despite his alleged involvement in the letter bomb that killed Dele Giwa.
We shall remind them of his being a pawn in the hands of the enemies of Nigeria. I wonder how you can be against us now and be given the privilege to protect us later. I pray some lawyers would not consider their positions on Yoruba nation and head on to court to obtain an injunction against Odumosun and his brutal government. We must not allow Buhari and his agents to cow all of us to submission.
