BREAKING: Protest Rocks Ibadan Over Sunday Igboho’s Detention In Benin Republic The agitators had also last week protested against the raid of Igboho’s residence by operatives of the Department of State Services and demanded release of the 12 aides arrested in Igboho’s house. The Yoruba Nation agitators will stage a protest in Ibadan, Oyo State by 12pm today, Wednesday, to demand the release of Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, who was arrested by security operatives and detained in Benin Republic. The agitators had also last week protested against the raid of Igboho’s residence by operatives of the Department of State Services and demanded release of the 12 aides arrested in Igboho’s house. A terse statement by Igboho’s spokesperson, Olayomi Koiki, confirmed today’s protest, saying all supporters of the activist were enjoined to participate. “Emergency, emergency, emergency; please, we beg all agitators to converge at the Chief Sunday Igboho’s House for a peaceful demonstration to show the world the kind of person he is as one of the conditions given for his release. “Please, let’s all be at his house in Soka, Ibadan, before 12pm today. Thanks and God bless. Yoruba Nation now now now,” Koiki said. Koiki had earlier said the Federal Government could not intimidate those agitating for the self-determination of the Yoruba Nation. He also stated that he believed Igboho would get a proper representation in the court. He made these known in a Facebook Live video on Wednesday morning as his principal spends the second night in a police cell in Cotonou, Benin Republic. He said, “We are not going to allow the government to intimidate us. We are not going to allow the Federal Government and politicians to deceive us. “We must remain strong and remain calm as we get freedom for Chief Sunday Igboho and the Yoruba race.” Igboho was arrested while he tried to catch a flight to Germany with his wife.
