The Yoruba Diaspora organisation, Yoruba One Voice (YOV) has denounced the ongoing detention of Tantolorun, Efunsetan Abebi, and other Osun devotees as well as Obalowu Jimoh.
The Yoruba Diaspora group has also urged governor AbdulRahman AbdulRasaq of Kwara state to intervene and ensure that those detained were released.
The Yoruba diaspora organisation referred to the trio’s arrest and lengthy detention as a mockery of justice and an act of intimidation that could spark a new crisis in a statement released by its general secretary, Prince Adedokun Ademiluyi.
Also, YOV insisted that Ebun Adelesi, the commissioner of police for Kwara state, was following a script that had been carefully written by some influential Ilorin figures. They added that there are clear signs that someone is responsible for the devotees’ arrest and illegal detention, even though it is obvious that the commissioner of police for Kwara state is doing everything in his power to obstruct their release.
The latest arrest and arraignment of Tantolorun, according to Prince Ademiluyi, demonstrated that the Kwara state police authority had the support of some religious leaders to violate the rights of the incarcerated followers.
The group also called on prominent Yoruba sons and daughters to support the call for the release of the three people detained in respect of the religious crisis in Ilorin,even as it warned those behind the crisis in Ilorin to stay away from actions that can stoke religious crisis in Yoruba land.
