Old man in police custody, not notorious Wakili – Fani Kayode alleges


Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has alleged that the septuagenarian in the custody of the Nigeria Police Force is not the wanted Isikilu Wakili.


Recall that men of the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, had over the weekend, captured an old man believed to be the notorious herdsman terrorising residents of the Ibarapa area of Oyo State.


OPC members had handed him over to the police, in the belief that he is Wakili.


The Oyo State Police command also agreeing with this belief had confirmed that Wakili was in its custody.


However, Fani-Kayode has now claimed the real Wakili is still at large.


In a series of tweets, the former minister insisted that the real Wakili was still leading his mafia.


The former minister called on Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho to synergize with the police and ensure the arrest of Wakili.


He tweeted: “One Isikilu Wakili, a foreign 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.


“The old man that they have in custody is not the real Mcoy. 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.”
