Yoruba in Diaspora allege Buhari exhibiting Abacha traits
• Say invasion of Igboho’s residence act of terrorism
• Urge detained supporters, others to seek redress over incarceration
A group based in the United States (U.S.), Yoruba Security Group, yesterday, said with what is happening in the country currently, President Muhammadu Buhari had started exhibiting lawlessness, dictatorship and other anti-democratic tendencies experienced during the Sani Abacha military junta.
A member of the group, who spoke with The Guardian on the authority of the leadership of the group in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, Akin Ladipo, lamented the dictatorial tendencies of the government and injustice that has become its forte.
Ladipo said the government was complicit in the insecurity besetting Igangan, Ibarapa and Nigeria in general.
Besides, he also described the invasion on Sunday Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho’s house as an act of terrorism and brigandage, maintaining that DSS must apologise to Igboho for invading his privacy.
Ladipo also urged supporters of the Yoruba freedom-fighter, who are still being detained by the secret police to go to court for the enforcement of their fundamental rights.
He said: “This government is exhibiting the traits of Abacha Government. This is how Abacha started.”
On the three members of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) arrested in connection with the attack on Iskilu Wakili, he urged them to seek redress for being illegally detained and unlawfully incarcerated.
