Former Oyo State Governor, Rashidi Ladoja, has advised the Federal Government of Nigeria to declare amnesty for Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, and leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Ladoja argued that the Federal Government should offer Igboho and Kanu official pardon as they have done to repented Boko Haram fighters in Borno State.
The former governor stated this while speaking with journalists in his Bodija residence on Tuesday.
Recall that Igboho was nabbed by the International Criminal Police Organisation in Cotonou, Benin Republic, while Kanu is currently in detention in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, while his trial continues.
Ladoja said: “Federal government has declared amnesty for Boko Haram, they should also declare amnesty for Igboho and the IPOB leader.
“Just like Kanu, to some people, Sunday Igboho has also become a leader, people are agitating for what they believe in. Yoruba leaders, including the Alaafin of Oyo have been complaining about atrocities committed by suspected herdsmen and nothing has been done to it till now.
“Boko Haram members were arrested a year ago by the government and have been released to the Borno State government.
“Sunday Igboho was created in the context of killings in Ibarapa axis of Oyo State. Nobody has been arrested for it and even if they were arrested, they were later released. That’s why people resorted to self-help.”
