The lawmaker representing, Ekiti North Senatorial District in the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Sen Olubunmi Adetunmbi, said security agencies must operate within the ambit of the law concerning Sunday Igbo’s arrest.
While noting that the Nigerian security agencies have the capacity to function, said there are lay down procedures about how a home invasion should happen. This is a reaction to the invasion of the home of Yoruba Nationa agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho. The security activist has been arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic, alongside his wife, Ropo after being declared wanted by the Department of State Services (DSS), who invaded his home around 2 am and engaged in a gun battle between Igboho and his boys. Two people died in the melee while 13 were arrested. Since then, Igboho had lay low.
He said that is what defines democracy from autocracy.
He, therefore, urged the law to take its cause. He said where if there are infractions, the affected party should seek redress in court.
“Whatever happens concerning law and order in any state should involve the governor of the state. The law is enough to allow for consultation of where and doing things are according to law,” the lawmaker stated this on Wednesday morning while featuring on Arise TV as a guest on the Morning Show, monitored by Newsbreakersonline.
