The Nigerian government and the security agencies have kept mute and refused to comment since Sunday Adeyemo, the Yoruba nation agitator was arrested in Benin Republic on Monday night.
He was arrested in Cotonou, the nation’s capital in attempt to flee to Germany having been declared wanted by the Directorate of State Security (DSS) after raiding his house, killing some of his men and hailing others into detention.
Adeyemo has been agitating for the Yoruba nation, following the near-unreadiness of the Nigerian authorities to put an end to the deadly Fulani herdsmen unslaught against the people of Southern Nigeria.
Since his arrest on Monday till Wednesday, it is expected that the Nigerian government and the security agencies made up of the police, Directorate of State Security (DSS) amd the Nigeria Intelligence Agency (NIA) should have made statements on Sunday Igboho’s arrest
But, officials of the federal government, Abubakar Malami, Attorney General of the federation and Lai Mohammed, information minister who usually speak on issues like this as they did when Nnamdi Kanu was arrested have maintained ghost-like silence for the past few days.
In the same vein, major national leaders from the Western Nigeria extraction, Vice President Yemi Osibanjo and national leader of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, have also maintained graveyard silence since the arrest of Sunday Igboho.
Other personalities such as Chief Femi Fani-Kayode and the Afenifere, the Yoruba socio-cultural group have made different statements and profering solution to the crisis on ground in Yorubaland.
