Benin Republic authorities have reportedly released Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho
According to Maxwell Adeleye, a spokesman for Igboho, the activist was set free today.
In a statement on Facebook, 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.”
Three weeks after he was declared wanted by Nigeria’s secret police, the Republican Police arrested Igboho July last year.
Igboho has nabbed in Cotonou while trying to travel to Germany and remained in custody until his alleged release.
