In a recent post on one of his social media accounts, Shehu Sani has advised the federal government of Nigeria to provide Sunday Igboho consular services, adding that the FG should ensure his safety and release. He further stated that this should not be done just to him, but also to any citizen held in a foreign country who he claimed are entitle to this kind of treatment.
Shehu Sani believes that no matter the offence of Igboho, the federal government should not abandon him in a foreign land, but should do the needful by carrying out one of its responsibility which is to ensure the protection of lives of its citizens.
It should be recalled that the Yoruba Nation agitator was arrested in Benin Republic while trying to escape from Nigeria. This happened three weeks after he was declared wanted by Nigeria's secret police.
