With the recent release of Sunday Igboho from detention in Benin Republic, HotnewsinNaija wants to have a flashback at how security operatives’ clampdown on his followers erroneously led to the arrest of one Fasooto Dada, a native of Ekiti State, who even had no personal connection with the activist.
In a viral video posted by BBC Yoruba, Fassoto Dada was arrested in his home and detained for six months on the account that he was a native doctor who fortified Sunday Igboho, even though the man has never seen Sunday Igboho in real life but only on the television and social media platforms.
In the account of Dada, some security operatives entered his house on the afternoon of 16th of July, 2021 to arrest him for making a call to one Tajudeen, who had ealier been arrested by them in Ibadan.
Dada noted that he only called Tajudeen, who had been his benefactor and resides in Ibadan, because he heard on the news that he was arrested by the security and got released after seven days. Dada said that the call he made to Tajudeen was to sympathize with him, only because he had also helped him with some money when he had problem in the past. But that was his greatest undoing.
The DSS operatives just traced his number to Ekiti from Ibadan to arrest him. And after the arrest, he said they initially told him that he was being taking to Ikere Police station. However, after they asked him if he could speak Hausa and he said no, they changed their mind and took him directly to Ibadan from where he was transported to Abuja.
According to him, he was subjected to a lot of torture and was held for good six months before he was eventually bailed by some lawyers.
Dada lamented that he actually couldn’t understand why he was arrested until the operatives in Abuja told him that they arrested him for being one of the native doctors who fortified Sunday Igboho.
Dada said that all his pleas that he had never seen Sunday Igboho in the real life but only on the television and social media fell on the deaf ears of the operatives who held him captive for a solid six months.
