Sunday Igboho's Condition In Detention Is Critical, He Must Be freed Now... Protesters Clamour in Ibadan


In a bid to secure the release of Yoruba Nation Agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemi Igboho,  protesters were seen on Saturday in Ibadan, calling for his unconditional release.

Igboho is currently in detention in the Benin Republic over an issue bothering illegal migration, among other offenses.

The protesters, who were mostly youths, carried placards with various inscriptions, demanding the immediate release of the activist currently in the custody of the Republic of Benin.

They started the protest from the residence of Igboho situated at Soka area of Ibadan and matched toward the Toll Gate on Ibadan – Lagos Expressway.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the protesting youths were singing solidarity songs, calling on the Federal Government to facilitate the release of Igboho from the custody of Republic of Benin.

One of the protesters, who identified himself as Kareem Adesope, urged Yoruba leaders and other meaningful Nigerians to prevail on the Federal Government to champion the release of the activist.

Adesope said the recent news reports that the activist was sick should be a source of concern to all patriotic Nigerians, adding that the activist should not be allowed to die in detention.

He claimed that Igboho was innocent of the charges against him, saying that he should not be treated like a common criminal.

According to him, his (Igboho) fundamental human rights had been grossly abused.

The protesters later returned to Igboho’s residence where they dispersed after the protest
