Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has been apprehended in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
According to information reaching Creekvibes News Magazine, Sunday Igboho will be repatriated to Nigeria today (Tuesday) July 20 from the neighboring country. He was arrested at an airport in Cotonou three weeks after the Department of State Services (DSS) declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms. It was further learned that his destination was Germany.
A source privy to this told Sahara Reporters;
Creekvibes News Magazine recalls that the DSS raided Igboho’s Ibadan residence in Soka area on July 1, 2021, arrested about 12 of his aides and killed two of them in a gun duel.
Nigeria Immigration Service and the Nigeria Customs Service were subsequently placed on alert to stop Igboho from leaving the country.
Recall that Igboho debunked a statement credited to the Oluwo of Iwo in Osun State, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, that Igboho would drop his agitations, and that he (Oba) would bring him to Abuja for peace talks, the spokesman of the activist, Olayomi Koiki, said there was no recent contact between the monarch and Igboho.
The Oluwo had in a letter to President Buhari on Friday, pleaded for Igboho to be forgiven and asked that the order for his arrest be ‘slowed down to enable him (oba) to bring him to Abuja.
