Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari against arresting Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho.
Omokri warned that Buhari would turn Igboho into a Southwest version of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB if arrested.
Recall that Igboho had issued a quit notice to Fulani Herdsmen in the Southwest.
The Yoruba activist had asked Fulanis to leave after allegations of criminal activities and kidnapping were raised against them.
Following Igboho’s ultimatum, there were speculations that the Presidency ordered his arrest.
However, Omokri dared Buhari to learn from the popularity Kanu gained after he was arrested.
In a tweet, the former presidential aide wrote: “Nobody knew who @MaziNnamdiKanu was until #Buhari arrested him. That arrest actually turned Kanu from an unknown to a messiah.
“I thought @MBuhari had learnt his lessons. If he arrests Sunday Igboho, he will only be doing him a favour by turning him to the SW version of Kanu!”
Meanwhile, Igboho had reaffirmed his decision to chase herdsmen out of the Southwest despite the public outcry that followed his declaration.
