Nigerians have expressed worries that the case against arrested notorious Fulani warlord terrorising Oyo communities, Iskilu Wakili, may be swept under the carpet.
Wakili was arrested by a joint team of Ibarapa security operatives, including Oodua Peoples Congress, Vigilante, and other groups.
The warlord whose gang has been accused of killings, kidnapping and other criminal activities, was arrested after several attempts resulting in a gun battle.
His arrest came as a delight to Nigerians on social media who, however, expressed fears that he may be set free soon.
On Twitter, one @shola_ebenezer said, “His case will soon be transferred to Abuja, and nothing will happen due to lack of diligent prosecution from the police. The FG may even have to pay him for detaining him without reasonable course. No be today e start.”
@HakaRedline said, “The IGP will call for his case file, he would be transferred to Abuja and that’ll be the end. He’d be released. This is how Nigeria is.”
@solex5k said, “I am pretty sure that Mr PRESIDENCY will set him free, watch out.”

@herculean_me said, “Watch and see FG and its agencies do everything possible to put a twist to this and to secure the release of the murderous kidnappers. Just watch.”
On Facebook, one Anyaegbu Sylvester said, “Some ambitious westerners will still work for his release and shamelessly tell you that they are promoting national unity.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed and see the unfolding stories.”
Chukwuemeka Okechukwu said, “Abuja will give order soon for his release & compensation.”
