Afenifere chieftain, Pa Ayo Adebanjo on Friday evening confirmed that Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho visited him in his house in Lagos.
He also condemned the attempt by a joint team of soldiers, DSS and policemen to arrest Igboho while on his way to his house.
After the attempted arrest, Igboho still made his way to Adebanjo’s house.
Adebanjo told P.M.NEWS on phone around 7:40pm that “Sunday Igboho just left my house.”
But he did not disclose what he discussed with him during the visit.
The elder statesman said the attempt to arrest Igboho by the Federal Government was unfortunate and uncalled for.
He lamented that bandits were killing and kidnapping people in the north and they have not been arrested, while Igboho was being hunted.
Adebanjo described President Muhammadu Buhari as a dictator and an imperialist, saying only God would deliver Nigeria out of his hand.
He also lamented that Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, despite his reckless utterances has not been arrested by the Buhari government.
Adebanjo said the comment made by Gumi that bandits are not criminals and that they should be given amnesty was unjust.
He also attacked Gumi for saying that Christian soldiers were the ones killing Fulani herdsmen and bandits.
Adebanjo added that in 2018 when the Governor of Benue, Samuel Ortom wrote to Buhari about the killings of his people by Fulani herdsmen, the president did nothing about it, even when the Fulani boasted that they owned every part of Nigeria.
