Yoruba Nation Agitator, Sunday Igboho Arrested in Cotonou

Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho, has been arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

According to The Punch, he was arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night.

A source said that Igboho will be deported to Nigeria on Tuesday (today) from the French-speaking country neighbouring Nigeria in the West African sub region.

The source said the Yoruba Nation agitator had perfected plans to secretly escape from Nigeria through Cotonou and was heading to Germany.

He was, however, nabbed by security operatives in the neighboring country.

Sunday Igboho has been arrested in Cotonou. He was arrested about an hour ago.

“He was supposed to travel to Germany through Cotonou this night. He wanted to leave Africa through Cotonou. He was arrested by security operatives in Cotonou.

“They are planning to bring him back to Nigeria,” the source said.

Recall that the Department of State Services, DSS, had declared Igboho wanted after its operatives carried out a raid on his residence in the Soka area of Ibadan, Oyo State and recovered ammunitions.

The Federal Government of Nigeria had placed the Nigeria Immigration Service and the Nigeria Customs Service on alert to stop Igboho from leaving the country.
