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.
Reports say efforts are being made towards repatriating him to Nigeria.
The Department of State Services, DSS, had recently declared Igboho wanted, after his residence in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, was invaded.
Some of his aides were killed while others were arrested. The secret police also claimed to have recovered guns and charms from Igboho’s residence.
However, the freedom fighter had debunked DSS claims on weapons.
He maintained that he protected himself with traditional powers and not with weapons.
Meanwhile, The pan Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere, has revealed that they are still studying the situation behind the reported arrest of Sunday Igboho. CONTINUE READING
