Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has said it will be hard to arrest popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, who asked Fulani herdsmen to vacate Igangan, Ibarapa area of Oyo State.
Falana stated this while featuring on a NoRM‘s known Media on Friday morning.
According to him, the failure of the Federal Government to take actions when some Northern Governors repatriated Almajiris back to their home states, shows that the issue of security in Nigeria is being politicized.
He noted that “President Muhammadu Buhari has just said he’s not going to politicize the issue of security. But the security situation in this country is already politicized. We do not have the same standard. That’s why we run into problems. When governors, recently in some states in the North, forcefully removed Almajiris and deported them back to their States of Origin, nobody protested on their behalf.
“If you do not protect the interest of Almajiris, why will you protect the interest of herders in any part of the country? This is why we have to maintain the same standard at all times and operate under the rule of law.”
