The Inspector General of Police, Adamu Muhammad is believed to be under serious pressure to arrest Sunday Igboho, the Punch Newspaper reports.
It is said that the police may again attempt to carry out a covert operation to take Igboho into custody having failed to arrest him last month and as well not honouring the recent invitation of the IGP.
Security sources told The Punch newspaper that the IG succumbed to pressure from authorities who are uncomfortable with Igboho’s trenchant calls for the disintegration of the country.”
Sunday Igboho had on Friday confirmed the letters sent to him by the IG but claimed that his security team refused to accept the letter, citing fear for his safety.
