Punch took to their verified Facebook profile to share the story, about how President Muhammadu Buhari's government is planning to arrest Akintoye.

The report reads "Federal Government is plotting the arrest of the Yoruba Nation arrowhead, Prof Banji Akintoye, Sunday PUNCH has learned. It was reliably gathered that the octogenarian professor of history has since left Nigeria for the neighboring Benin Republic to escape the plot for his arrest. The regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has in recent months turned maddening heat on separatists".

It is a known fact that the President wants a United Nigeria and anyone who wants to break the nation is seen as an enemy of his government.
