Ogboni Fraternity Leader Explains Why He Allowed Lagos Police To Arrest Him At Yoruba Nation Rally

The leader of Ogboni fraternity, Tajudeen Bakare who was arrested in July at the Yoruba Nation rally in Ojota, Lagos, has disclosed that he chose not to disappear when men of the Lagos Police Command seized him according to Sahara Reporters.

According to him, he considered it inappropriate to disappear because he was arrested alongside some other persons.

He disclosed that he allowed himself to be arrested with the others in order to protect them because they are not members of Ogboni fraternity.

He added that there were six other people in the vehicle with him when they were arrested and he was concerned about their fate should he escape and leave them behind.

Bakare stated this during his recent interview with BBC News Yoruba.

He also disclosed that he was shocked at the murder allegations levelled against him by the state's authorities, saying he had no gun with him when he was arrested.
