Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Igboho arrested in Cotonou

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

Igboho who will be repatriated to Nigeria on Tuesday July 20 from the neighboring country, was arrested at an airport in Cotonou three weeks after the Department of State Services declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms. It was further learnt that his destination was Germany. 

A source privy to this told Sahara Reporters; 

“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.”

Recall that the DSS raided Igboho’s Ibadan residence in Soka area on July 1, 2021, arrested about 12 of his aides and killed two of them in a gun duel.

Nigeria Immigration Service and the Nigeria Customs Service were subsequently placed on alert to stop Igboho from leaving the country.
