"My Life In Danger" Sunday Igboho Cries Out From Prison


Embattled Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has alleged a plot to eliminate him in the Benin Republic.

The 49-year-old agitator was arrested by operatives of Brigade Criminelle (Criminal Brigade) on July 19 in Cotonou.

Despite efforts to get him released, checks by The Nation show he has spent over 161 days in detention.

Olayomi Koiki, spokesman of Igboho, in a podcast monitored by our reporter on Tuesday evening, alleged that Benin President Patrice Talon was working with the Federal Government to extradite Igboho to Nigeria.


He said: “So many people have heard rumours in the past 24/48 hours. We know that God almighty is watching.

“If they are trying, they cannot be successful. If they are planning evil against Prof. Banji Akintoye and others, they are only trying but God’s power is superior.

“Benin Republic judicial system is not working. Look at the way his case has been prolonged.

“I’ve spoken with our lawyer in Benin, and he told me that only the president can set him free.

“Now, diplomacy cannot work. We have to fight for our rights.

“See the way they killed MKO Abiola, Funsho Williams – they were killed unjustly.

“We’ve issued so many ultimatum for Igboho’s release, but nothing has happened.”
