Again police invite Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Igboho

The police have once again invited popular Yoruba activist, Mr. Sunday Adeyemo popularly called Sunday Igbobo for an ‘interactive session.’

The immediate past Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu had on April 2nd sent an invitation letter to him, which he rejected. 

Reacting to the invitation then, Igboho refused to accept the invitation letter, which was sent to him via a courier service citing security concerns.

The development left the 15 police officers to deliver in limbo as they left his sprawling Ibadan residence dejected.

The earlier invitation prompted spontaneous reactions in some quarters particularly in the South West region with many stakeholders wondering what the motive of the police could be.

The latest invitation was broken by his media aide, Mr. Olayomi Koiki on his verified FACEBOOK account late Saturday night.

According to Koiki, the officer in charge of the State Intelligence Bureau in Osun State Police Command, Osogbo, one Afolayan Sunday wrote the invitation letter.

The letter dated 8th of April reads in part, “I am directed by the Commissioner of Police, Osun State Command to invite you to an interactive/security meeting in his office at the police headquarters, off Ring Road, Osogbo on Monday, 12th of April, 2021.”

The letter further reads, “You are directed to report to the office of the Officer in charge of Intelligence bureau (SIB) on arrival.”

Commenting on the latest invitation, Kioki who didn’t state whether his principal will honour the invitation or not wrote, “To one of our Yoruba Coordinators, we would like to remind the state Intelligence Bureau that international law requires us to exercise self-determination, as well as peaceful rallies and awareness in all parts of Yoruba territory.

“We would like to show this letter to the world to show that nothing can happen to anyone in Yoruba land during the rally, and that no security personnel should threaten anyone.”
