JUST IN: Yoruba Nation agitators to protest Igboho’s detention in Cotonou

Agitators for the secessionist of Yorubaland are set to protest the detention of one of the arrowheads of the movement, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, disclosed this in a notice on Facebook on Wednesday.

“Emergency, emergency, emergency, emergency, please we beg all agitators to converge at Chief Sunday Igboho’s house for a peaceful demonstration to show the world the kind of person he is as one of the conditions given for his release, please let’s all be at his house in Soka, Ibadan before 12 o clock today. Thanks and God bless. Yoruba nation now now now!”

Recall that Igboho and his wife, Ropo, were arrested at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic around 8pm on Monday. They were subsequently detained in separate cells. The Nigerian government has since been pushing for their extradition to Abuja but many individuals and groups have kicked against this move.

Igboho, who rose to prominence in January 2021 after he issued an ultimatum to ‘killer herders’ in parts of Ibarapaland, was said to have escaped the security apparatus in the areas to Benin Republic where he was scheduled to catch a flight to Germany.

He had been declared wanted on July 1, 2021 when the Department of State Services raided his Soka residence in Ibadan, arrested 12 of his aides and killed two others.
