Femi Fani-Kayode has called out the government of Benin republic for arresting and detaining, Yoruba Activist, Sunday Igboho’s wife.
The former Aviation Minister described the act as sheer wickedness on the part of Benin Republic, saying she committed no crime.
The activist’s wife was said to have been arrested alongside her husband in Cotonou on Monday night as they tried to relocate to Germany weeks after the deadly attack on their Soka, Ibadan residence by men of the Department of State Services, DSS.
According to Fani-Kayode, the lady is still in detention up till this moment, adding that even in war situation women and children are meant to be protected and not targetted.
“This is the height of wickedness – to arrest and detain Sunday Igboho’s wife, Mama Ayomide, alongside him in Cotonou as they were about to board a plane to Germany. Up till now, the lady is still in detention. Even in war, women and children are meant to be protected and not targetted,” he tweeted.
“Only barbarians, terrorists, cowards, degenerates, reprobates, evil men and devil-worshippers do otherwise. Mrs. Igboho has not been accused of anything and she has not broken any laws. Her ‘crime’, in the eyes of her tormentors, is simply being the wife of Sunday.
“Leave her alone! Anything less would be cruel. I make this appeal to the authorities in both Cotonu and Nigeria.
“The women and children of those we perceive as being our adversaries should NEVER be targetted for death, destruction, incarceration, torture, persecution or humiliation.”
