The 2023 African Action Congress (AAC) presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, has called for the immediate release of a traditionalist in Kwara State, Tani Olohun.
In a post on his Twitter page on Tuesday, Sowore also called for the sacking of the Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Ebunoluwarotimi Adelesi, for the alleged mishandling of the lingering religious crisis in the state.
The human rights activist said that the police boss was playing mind games in the ongoing issues between traditional worshippers and Muslim ulama in the state.
He wrote, “#FreeTaniOlohunNow: This Kwara CP is playing to the gallery, pretending as though she is not biased against Tani Olohun. The fact that she had to hold a meeting with the family of a “wanted man” begging them to ask him to surrender shows that she was just playing mind games. She didn’t declare him wanted for weeks since he allegedly committed the offence until all circulated his video.
“She also hasn’t declared wanted those that threatened Isese worshippers. Their videos are all over the internet as well. We ask the IGP of the Nigeria Police Force to remove the CP, discontinue the kangaroo trial of Tani Olohun, and release him from unjust detention with immediate effect! #freetaniolohun #RevolutionNow.”
Meanwhile, the Kwara Police Command has declared a Muslim cleric, Salam Ayodeji, wanted for allegedly threatening a traditional practitioner in Ilorin Kwara State.
This declaration was made on Monday night by Adelesi, during a meeting with Ayodeji’s family in Ilorin, the state capital.
The CP had asked the family to produce the suspect latest Wednesday for the alleged offence of terrorism and defamation against the police.
