Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, otherwise known as Sunday Igboho, has regained freedom after spending eight months in Benin Republic detention.
Recall that Igboho was arrested on July 21, 2021 in Benin.
In a statement on Facebook on Monday, Adeleye wrote: “Yoruba Nation Activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, fondly called Sunday Ighoho, has been released by the Government of Republic of Benin.”
“The Activist was released on Monday to a Yoruba Leader and Leader of the Umbrella body of Yoruba Self-determination Groups, Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Professor Banji Akintoye and a French Language Expert/ Deputy Alana of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Professor Wale Adeniran.”
There were reports last year that Nigeria was pushing for Igboho’s extradition, accusing him and his “cohorts to wage a violent insurrection against the Nigerian State”.
