A former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has stated that the septuagenerian arrested by members of the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, on Sunday was not the notorious Fulani warlord, Iskilu Wakili.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Mr Fani-Kayode said the real Wakili had killed some persons, even after the arrest of the old man.
He called on security agents and Yoruba militiaman, Sunday Igboho, to join forces and capture the real Wakili.
“One Isikilu Wakili, a foreign Fulani terrorist who operates in the Ibarapa area, is the most notorious, dangerous and bloodthirsty terrorist in the South-West today. He killed even more people yesterday. He is even worse than Abu and the old man that is in police custody in Ibadan.
“The Isikilu Wakili that is still at large is the leading mafia don and he is a brutal and cold-blooded rapist and killer. He has brought torment and carnage to the people of the South-West. I call on my friend and brother, Sunday Igboho to support & and assist the Nigeria Police Force and intelligence agencies to find him, fish him out and bring him to justice.
“This must be done within the law and it must be done with power and precision. Now is the time to free the people of Ibarapa and the SW of his wickedness and barbarity. Now is the time to do what ought to have been done long ago. I trust our security forces to do the right thing. If he resists arrest, they should send him to hell where he belongs. The old man that they have in custody is not the real Mcoy. He is simply one of the godfathers.
“Isikilu is the real Mcoy and he is still out there killing our people. Only our security forces with the total support and commitment of Sunday Igboho, the local community and the gallant and fearless sons and daughters of Oduduwa can save the day. And save the day they must!,” Mr Fani-Kayode tweeted.
