Sunday Adeyemo, a Yoruba nation advocate popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has been arrested in Benin Republic.
According to PUNCH’s report, the agitator was arrested in Cotonou by Benin Republic’s security forces while he was trying to escape to Germany.
“He was arrested in Cotonou while he tried to travel out on Monday night. His destination was Germany. The security forces in Benin Republic should repatriate him to Nigeria on Tuesday,” a source was quoted to have said.
The Department of State Services (DSS) raided the home of the Yoruba nation fighter in Ibadan, Oyo state on July 1.
He had planned a ”Yoruba nation rally” in Lagos two days before his house was raided.
The DSS raided the house, killing two people and arresting 12 aides. But Igboho absconded.
The agency alleged that Igboho was storing arms, and eventually declared him wanted.
Igboho has been on the run ever since his residence was raided.
The federal government had pronounced that the agitator was working at getting a new passport to evade the country for Germany.
The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) had placed a notice for Igboho’s arrest across Nigerian borders.
