Yoruba youths dare FG over Miyetti Allah’s call for Obasanjo’s arrest

Yoruba youths under the auspices of Igbimo Odo Yoruba on Monday reacted with anger to a media statement by a faction of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, calling on the Federal Government to arrest former President Olusegun Obasanjo, over comments made by him in his open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday.

In a strongly-worded statement on Monday, a copy of which was made available to News Express, the group said: “We strongly consider this ridiculous call by this faction of the notorious Miyetti Allah group as not only an insult, but a joke taken too far by these characters, who have today become an organisation of national security concern to the average Nigerian.

“We want to liken the latest call for the arrest of former President Obasanjo to the infamous 30 days ultimatum issued by one of its surrogate organisations known as the Coalition of Northern Group (CNG), over issues around the establishment of cattle colonies by the Buhari administration.”
It added: “We hereby dare the Federal Government to arrest President Obasanjo and see what will be the fallout of such action.

“It is worrisome that people who ordinarily should be behind bars for the numerous crimes against humanity in Nigeria, that were the issues around which Chief Obasanjo’s letter focused on, are now audacious enough, making media appearances and issuing further threats to the security and stability of our country.

“We loudly say that for the Federal Government to make any attempt at arresting Chief Obasanjo or any of our leaders, who have risen to the occasion of calling on this administration to act, in the face of a likely national disintegration, being fueled mainly by the atrocious activities of the members of Miiyetti Allah will not augur well, not only  for the present government, but also every enabler of the atrocities being committed against Nigerians, particularly in the Southwest.

“Today, Nigerians are watching helplessly, as Fulani herdsmen masquerading as Miyetti Allah,  keep tormenting innocent citizens while carrying out lots of atrocities against non -Fulani  communities  with the Federal Government not raising an eyebrow.

“We repeat that if Buhari’s government continues to keep quiet as these marauders keep insulting our sensibilities without immediately putting an end to their criminalities across the country, we shall no longer take it kindly with the government and those assaulting our people.
“If this administration wants to make any arrest, they should start from these criminals and terrorists who have made lives miserable for us and are pushing our country completely to the brink.
“Whoever thinks of arresting President Obasanjo or any of our leaders should immediately bury such thought because it will backfire seriously on them.

“We also want to call on government and security agencies to immediately call these factions of Miyetti Allah to order against making disparaging statements that are uncalled for. There is nothing unusual about citizens particularly elder statesman like Chief Obasanjo, speaking against politics of the incumbent provided they are based on facts.

“We urge Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to remain consistent and feel free to call the incumbent administration to order when need be.”
They concluded with an affirmative declaration: “We have spoken!”
