Why The Nigerian Govt Might Not Render Consular Services To Sunday Igboho As Opined By Shehu Sani

Following the report which revealed that Sunday Igboho is in need of urgent medical attention, Senator Shehu Sani has opined that the Nigerian government should render consular service to the Yoruba nation agitator.According to the politician, it is incumbent on the federal government to render Sunday Igboho consular services and ensure his safety and release no matter the offence he has committed to the Nigerian State. Contrary to Shehu Sani's opinion, the Nigerian government might however not make this move because of the reason explained below. Prior to Sunday Igboho's arrest in Benin Republic, the activist had been declared wanted and was even advised to surrender himself to the nearest police station. Sunday Igboho was however trying to escape from the federal government as he was allegedly on a move to Germany before he was apprehended in an airport in Cotonou. Moreover, Sunday Igboho has been involved in an agitation against the Nigerian State, the government of which could have delivered him from detention in Benin Republic. Agitation for secession is obviously against the country's authorities and the Nigerian government will surely refused to render consular services to someone who has failed to identify with her.
