In what many people will not believe, Iskilu Wakili defended himself against the accusation that he is a criminal.
Wakili revealed this while talking to some select journalists through an interpreter at the Eleyele Police Department.
He claimed that he thought the people who came to arrest him were Amotekun operatives.
In fact, he challenged the people who have evidence or facts of any crime he had committed to make it public, The Nation reports.
Going further, he claimed that he was also a victim of kidnapping because two of his children were once abducted and he had to pay ransom to secure their release.
Meanwhile, CP Ngozi Onadeko, said any residents with proven evidence of atrocities against the suspects should come forward for proper investigation.
