Sunday Igboho’s supporters protest in Ibadan, demand his release

The Cour D’Appel De Cotonou, in Benin Republic late Monday ordered the continued detention of self-styled leader of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.

Scores of supporters of Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, on Saturday in Ibadan, staged a protest, calling for his unconditional release.

Igboho is currently in detention in the Benin Republic over issues bothering on illegal migration among other offences.

The protesters, who were mostly youths, carried placards with various inscriptions, demanding the immediate release of the activist currently in the custody of the Republic of Benin.

They started the protest from the residence of Igboho situated at Soka Area of Ibadan and matched toward the Toll Gate on Ibadan–Lagos Expressway.

Newsmen report that the protesting youths were singing solidarity songs, calling on the federal government to facilitate the release of Igboho from the custody of the Republic of Benin.

One of the protesters, who identified himself as Kareem Adesope, urged Yoruba leaders and other meaningful Nigerians to prevail on the federal government to champion the release of the activist.

Adesope said the recent news that the activist was sick should be a source of concern to all patriotic Nigerians, adding that the activist should not be allowed to die in detention.
