The Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Drainage and Water Resources, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, in what appears to be a mockery of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo; and leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, says juju (charms) has failed.
“Juju no de work again ooo. It failed in Igbo land and it failed too in Yoruba land,” Igbokwe wrote on his Facebook page.
The post was accompanied by a photograph of Mr. Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, heavily decked in charms.
Igboho’s arrest in Cotonou, Benin Republic, became national news on Tuesday.
He was reportedly arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night, a top source familiar with the matter said.
Igboho was arrested by the security forces in the Benin Republic about three weeks after the Department of State Services had declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms — an allegation he has since denied.
The source told The PUNCH that Igboho will be repatriated to Nigeria from the Benin Republic, one of Nigeria’s neighboring countries in the West African sub-region.
“He was arrested in Cotonou while he tried to travel out on Monday night. His destination was Germany,” the source said.
Concerning his encounter with Kanu, Igbokwe said that the IPOB leader had threatened him and his family before the arrest.
Igbokwe made this known in a statement in late June titled ‘Thank God I survived Nnamdi Kanu’s madness’.
According to Igbokwe, Kanu had sought his blood because he disagreed with the secessionist movement of IPOB.
The statement partly reads, “Nnamdi asked his boys to behead me anywhere they see me. They did not spare my children as they extended the same fate to them.
“He also did not spare the names of every other person who spoke against his dreamland, Biafra.
Igbokwe also explained that his family lived in fear and his children were threatened.
