Onuesoke condemns police action on Ile-Ife crisis

Onuesoke

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Delta State, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, yesterday, condemned the steps taken by Police Inspector General Ibrahim Idris on the Ile-Ife crisis.

Reacting to the claim that Yoruba were arrested and paraded in Abuja, while their Hausa counterparts in the crisis were ignored in the Ile-Ife crisis, Onuesoke said the IGP seemed to be biased in the fracas that involved the two tribes.

Onuesoke said Nigerians were disturbed at the massive media publication accusing the IG of ordering the mass arrest of the Yoruba even when it was clear the crisis in the ancient town was between two major ethnic nationalities.

He said it was unfortunate that the IGP chose to arrest only the Yoruba together with their traditional rulers , parading them in Abuja, far away from where the crisis occurred.
