Former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode has cautioned the Federal Government to treat Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba separatist, and Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), with caution.
On Monday, the two will be arraigned in Nigerian and Benin Republic courts. Following his arrest, Kanu will be arraigned in Abuja, while Sunday Igboho will be arraigned in Benin Republic. Both men have been at the forefront of pro-Biafra and pro-Oduduwa movements, respectively.
In a tweet on Sunday, Fani-Kayode advised the Nigerian government to tread carefully in light of their upcoming trial, claiming Kanu and Igboho control millions of hearts and represent a huge cause.
“Tomorrow the two most powerful separatist leaders in Nigeria, namely @MaziNnamdiKanu & @_IgbohoSunday, will appear before two separate courts in two separate nations,” he wrote.
“They both control millions of hearts & minds & they represent a mighty cause. They are not alone: Nigeria beware!”
