Igboho and Kanu are not Nigeria’s problems – Bakare

The Serving Overseer, Citadel Global Community Church, (formerly called The Latter Rain Assembly), Lagos, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has stated that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, are not Nigeria’s problems.

Bakare, who said this during his sermon at the CGCC, while faulting the recent clampdown on those agitators, added that the Federal Government has jettisoned the search for justice and replaced same with intimidation and brutality.

The cleric who was the running mate to Buhari when the President contested the presidential election on the platform of the now defunct Congress for Progressive Change in 2011 and lost, while clearing the air that he is not supporting any one or groups taking up arms against the state, equally berated the government for expending so much energy on clamping down on sectional agitators in the country.

“I don’t support any act of violence, taking up arms against the country and killing people. Those are in the realm of criminality and anybody doing that must be brought to book,” Bakare said amid prayers and declarations.

He added, “However, we must realize that what has given rise to the agitation is lack of justice and equity. When there is justice, when there is equity, agitation will die down.

“How can you be expending so much energy on Igboho and Kanu? Igboho and Kanu are not Nigeria’s problems.

“Nigeria must restructure, and no one can stop that.”
