The authorities of Benin Republic has been called by the President, Agbekoya Worldwide, Kamorudeen Okiki to free the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, or the group would adopt “traditional means.”
Okiki made the call in Osogbo, Osun State capital, on Thursday during a peaceful rally held by the group where it also demanded restructuring of the country.
Speaking after he had delivered a letter containing seven-point demands to the Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun, in his palace following a successful rally on major streets in the state capital, he also decried high rate corruption in government business.
He said, “Sunday igboho is not a criminal. We will continue to say that. We know that it is the Federal Government that is holding Igboho in Benin Republic, but we are telling Benin Republic authorities now to legally release him using their court.
“They should release him legally and quickly because they are not taking him to court again, or we will use our traditional means and powers to take Igboho out of the court.
“We are Agbekoya, if they don’t release Sunday Igboho legally, we are going to take him out of Benin Republic. They will just see that Sunday Igboho is out of their prison.”
Three weeks after Igboho was declared wanted by Nigeria’s secret police, the Republican Police on Monday, July 19, 2021 arrested him.
He was arrested in neighbouring Cotonou, Benin Republic, while trying to travel to Germany.
A local newspaper in the neighbouring country, Banouto, reports quoted Beninise authorities as saying he was nabbed at Cardinal Bernardin International Airport in Cotonou.
