The Federal Government has said Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, is trying to acquire a new passport to flee the country.
It added that that Igboho has been placed on the stop-list in order to facilitate his arrest and it directed security agencies to apprehend him anywhere he is found.
The directive against the Yoruba Nation agitator was contained in a letter by the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, dated July 9, 2021 and addressed to the Director General, Department of State Services, the Inspector General of Police and the DG, National Intelligence Agency, The Punch reports.
In the security circle, a person whose name is on the stop-list is denied all constitutional rights and privileges a citizen is entitled to.
Sunday Igboho had been declared wanted by the Department of State Services on allegations of stockpiling arms to destabilise the country, which he has since denied, but his whereabouts remain unknown.
