Yoruba Nation Agitator, Sunday Igboho Apprehended In Republic Of Benin

Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho, have been apprehended in Cotonou, Benin Republic, one of Nigeria’s neighbouring countries in the West African sub region.

He was apprehended at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night, 19th July, by the security forces in Benin, three weeks after the Department of State Services, declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms, an allegation he has since denied.

According to The Punch, Igboho will be extradited to Nigeria on Tuesday, 20th July, from Benin Republic

A source said “He was arrested in Cotonou while he tried to travel out on Monday night. His destination was Germany. The security forces in Benin Republic should extradite him to Nigeria on Tuesday”.

Recall that the Department of State Service, 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.
