Akintoye cautioned over Yoruba Nation agitations

Akintoye cautioned over Yoruba Nation agitations

History Professor Banji Akintoye has been cautioned over his role in the Yoruba Nation agitation.

He was reportedly cautioned by a group known as the Apostles of Jagaban in a statement by its National Chairman, Gilbert Olokesusi.

The group also reminded Akintoye about the manhunt launched by the police for Dupe Onitiri-Abiola, a suspected sponsor of the invasion of the Oyo State government secretariat in Ibadan by some Yoruba Nation agitators.

Onitiri-Abiola, a widow of the business mogul and prominent politician, the late Moshood Abiola, is wanted over her broadcast in a viral video in which she claimed responsibility for the violence that jolted the governments of the six Southwest states.

The agitators, wielding guns and other weapons, many of them wearing military camouflage, invaded the Oyo State House of Assembly complex located inside the secretariat and hoisted their flag on April 13.

They also attempted to breach the security of the governor’s office before they were repelled by security operatives.

The Apostles of Jagaban said: “Akintoye, a well-respected professor for his vocal criticism of Boko Haram, should learn from the predicament of Mrs. Onitiri-Abiola.

“By giving the government an ultimatum of mid-July to negotiate with his illegal group, Akintoye is approaching the red tape."
