Yoruba rights activist Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho has revealed he turned down two invitation letters by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
In a statement by his media aide, Olayomi Koiki, Igboho said the letters were sent on Thursday to him via a courier service and another with about 15 police officers.
He said his security operatives refused to accept the letters for security reasons.
The statement reads: “We would like to tell the international communities and every Nigerian that this morning 1st of April, 2021, a letter was sent via DHL to Chief Sunday Igboho but the letter was not received by his security operatives.
“Later around 3 pm of the same day, a team of about 6 men without uniform arrived in a Corolla car and another 9 were in police uniform but all were identified as police officers.
“They wanted to see Chief Sunday Igboho with a letter said to have been addressed to him by the Inspector General of Police. Again, the letter was not received by Chief Sunday’s security team.
“Chief Sunday would like to know why a letter was sent to him and for what purpose. If the IG of police wants to invite him, we would like him to first send the same letter to all the bandits and Boko Haram members killing our mother’s and farmers and those kidnapping them.
“Since the IG of police wants to invite him, he should make a public statement addressed to Chief Sunday Igboho.
“We should all remember how letters had been sent to previous Yoruba sons like the late Dele Giwa.”
