The Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho, has been arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic by the Nigerian authorities.
With the Arrest of Igboho and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu in Kenya, who is cooling at the custody of the department of State Services (DSS) Nigerians are calling on the federal government to use the same power and arrest Bandits leaders terrorising many North West and North Central states.
Elanza News reports that Sunday Igboho was arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night, according to a source.
Igboho was arrested by the security forces in Benin Republic about three weeks after the Department of State Services declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms, an allegation he has since denied.
There are indications Sunday Igboho will be repatriated to Abuja, Nigeria on Tuesday (today) from Benin Republic.
“He was arrested in Cotonou while he tried to travel out on Monday night. His destination was Germany,” a source said.
The Department of State Security had raided Igboho’s Ibadan residence in the Soka area on July 1, 2021, arrested about 12 of his aides and killed two of them in a gun duel.
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.
