The embattled Yoruba nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho), has issued a 24-hour ultimatum to Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde to order Amotekun to produce a young man, who disappeared since last week in Ibadan or face a large-scale protest.
Igboho issued the ultimatum on his Instagram handle @sunday_igboho1 yesterday.
The young man, simply identified as Bobola, disappeared on December 30, last year after Amotekun personnel allegedly stormed a house in Apata in response to a distress call. Four young men who were inside the house at the time of security operatives’ arrival were said to have fled on sighting them. The family alleged that the Amotekun personnel shot at the fleeing men as they pursued them.
The family further alleged that after the dust settled, only three men returned, adding that Bobola had not been seen since then.
Martins Oreoluwa Obong, who claimed to be Bobola’s brother, wrote to the Oyo Police Command on Instagram: “On Friday 30th of December, 2022, Amotekun broke into my younger brother’s house in Apata, Ibadan and since then we have not seen him…”
Also issuing the threat on his Instagram account, Igboho said it was worrisome that Amotekun had kept mum over the incident, while the family of the victim was agonising.
He wrote: “My attention has been drawn to the mysterious disappearance of this promising young man.
“Although, I was aware of a robbery that happened at the sharp corner area of Ibadan by a blog and the particular blog later updated that one of the robbers was killed, according to the posts by this blog, its looking like the young man has been mistaken for a robber (I’m not concluding, this is an assumption).
“Therefore, l expect @amotekun_ng to provide the young man or explain what happened to the family.
These are the issues I am complaining about.
@seyi_amakinde call your people to provide the young man or explain to the family.
Our people cannot be missing mysteriously and we will keep quiet about it.
“Provide the young man within 24 hours or there will be a serious protest, which may lead to work disruption in Ibadan.
Do the needful immediately, provide the body of the thief you killed @amotekun_ng.”
Contacted, the press officer of the security agency, Mr. Adeniyi Adeleke, said he was yet to get details of the incident.
He promised to provide the details of the incident as soon as available.
