The Igbimo Odo Yoruba has dared the federal government to arrest ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo over the letter he wrote to President Buhari.
Recall that the Miyetti Allah group called for the arrest of former President Olusegun Obasanjo who sent an open letter to President Buhari yesterday, decrying the state of the Nation with particular reference to insecurity.
The former President in his open letter, said it is quite unfortunate that criminality has now been attached to the Fulani tribe because President Buhari is from the Fulani extraction.
”The unfortunate situation is that the criminality is being perceived as a ‘Fulani’ menace unleashed by Fulani elite in the different parts of the country for a number of reasons but even more, unfortunately, many Nigerians and non-Nigerians who are friends of Nigeria attach vicarious responsibility to you as a Fulani elite and the current captain of the Nigeria ship.
“Perception may be as potent as reality at times. Whatever may be the grievances of Fulanis, if any, they need to be put out in the open and their grievances, if legitimate, be addressed; and if other ethnic groups have grievances, let them also be brought out in the open and addressed through debate and dialogue”
Obasanjo said in his letter
Reacting, the Miyetti Allah called for the arrest of Obasanjo, accusing him of working against the interest of Nigeria.
In a counter-reaction, the Igbimo Odo Yoruba through its Secretary General, Olufemi Lawson, stated that the federal government would be calling for a clash if Obasanjo is arrested.
The group dared the Federal government to carry out the demand’s of the Miyetti Allah and be ready for the outcome.
