Bishop Francis Wale Oke, the National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, has appealed to the Federal Government of Nigeria under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari not to silence the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi kanu, and Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho.
Oke urged the Buhari government to practise good governance and equity as a means of resolving the agitations across Nigeria, adding that agitations will never stop and others will rise if Kanu and Igboho are silenced.
The Bishop spoke while addressing a press conference on the state of the nation at the Redemption Camp of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Mowe, Ogun State, on Thursday.
Oke said, “We appeal to the government to make sure that there is equity in the participation and representation in governance by the people.
“Until that is done, agitation will never stop. If we silence Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho, others will rise.”
MaaziTV reports that Kanu is presently in detention in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, while his trial continues after he was re-arrested by security operatives two weeks ago.
Ighoho’s house was invaded by the DSS a few days ago. He is currently on the run as nobody has seen him since the attack on his residence.
Both Kanu and Igboho are separatist agitators.
