Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho’s lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, has revealed how the Oduduwa Republic agitator was apprehended.
Igboho, according to Olajengbesi, was not detained. Rather, he handed himself up to security personnel.
“He was indeed arrested, as I have confirmed. We’re doing everything we can to make sure he’s okay. You are aware that he has been proclaimed wanted by the Department of State Services.
“As a matter of fact, let me tell you now. That Sunday Igboho was arrested simply because he wanted to make himself available to the government. If not, Sunday Igboho is not someone who can be arrested that way. But because he believes that the journey to justice for the Yoruba people and for the Nigerian state to be able to live in peace may be needed for him to be available, that was why,” he told newsmen on Tuesday.
Igboho was arrested by security operatives in an airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic, while trying to flee to Germany.
Efforts are said to be ongoing towards repatriating him to Nigeria.
