Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba Nation activist, appeared at the Cour De’appal De Cotonou on Thursday, July 22nd, ahead of his arraignment by Benin Republic authorities. Igboho was detained a few days ago in Cotonou on suspicion of immigration violations.
The Federal Government has made many efforts to arrest the activist after he made headlines a few months ago when he announced that Fulani squatters in Igangan, Oyo State, should leave the town.
Igboho had also hoisted a flag announcing the Yoruba Nation in footage published online. A development that sparked debate among residents. On camera, the activist further stated that all borders in the Southwest area will be unlocked since they now fell within the Yoruba country.
Following that, armed security forces invaded Igboho’s house in Ibadan, the capital city of Oyo, killing two of Igboho’s aides in an alleged gun duel.
Igboho was apprehended nineteen days after the occurrence, which elicited a torrent of emotions from residents both at home and abroad. He was allegedly attempting to flee Africa through Benin Republic airport.
In Benin Republic, he was accused of illegally acquiring a passport.
The videos below are a collection of statements made by Sunday Igboho prior to his detention. The activist is claimed to have been perplexed by the videos.
