Popular self acclaimed Yoruba activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, fondly called Sunday Igboho, has revealed reasons why he turned down a secret invitation sent to him by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to the Force Headquarters in Abuja some days back.
This revelation was made a spokesperson to Igboho, Olayomi Koiki, who spoke via a video clip that has now gone viral on social media, stating that the invitation from IGP was brought to his principal’s residence in Ibadan on Thursday, this week, by six police officers.
Koiki went on to explain that the rejection of the letter was predicated on the grounds that prior experiences in the country showed that it’s dangerous to receive such a letter privately. He recalled how a frontline journalist, Dele Giwa, received a letter bomb in 1986 and lost his life to it after opening it.
He stated further that some months ago, his house was razed by some unknown arsonists and that he was attacked by some men in uniform on his way to Lagos, a few weeks ago. He added that his mother’s house was also attacked by some suspected herdsmen a few weeks ago.
According to him, some men in military uniform allegedly surveying his house were also caught some days ago. But on Thursday, some police officers stormed his house to give him a letter of invitation to Abuja.
Koiki, however, stated that Igboho would honour the invitation if the IGP makes the invitation public so that members of the public would know whatever is going on.
