Sunday Igboho Trying To Get Passport And Flee Out Of Nigeria – FG

Published

on

The federal government has revealed that Yoruba Nation secessionist, Sunday Igboho, is trying to obtain a new passport to escape from Nigeria.

This came after the federal government placed him on the stop-list in order to facilitate his arrest following the DSS attack on his home.

In a letter signed by A.B. Baba, assistant comptroller general of immigration, investigation and compliance, on behalf of the comptroller general of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).

The NIS letter titled “Stop-listing of person” is addressed to the director-general of the DSS, the inspector-general of police, the director-general, National Intelligence Agency, and all zonal coordinators and control posts of the NIS.

The letter carries the information of “Adeyemo Sunday Adeniyi (aka Sunday Igboho), male, Nigerian, passport number A11613637, date of birth 10/10/1972.”

A person whose name is on the stop-list is deprived of particular rights, privileges, or other services he or she ought to enjoy.

In the NIS letter, the federal government alleged that Ighoho is making efforts to obtain a police extract and/or court affidavit to enable him to acquire a new Nigerian passport.

It said the alleged attempt is to facilitate his escape out of the country.

The NIS added that the activist should be arrested whenever sighted.

“I am directed to request that you kindly place the above-named person on stop-list,” the letter reads.

Credible intelligence revealed that Adeyemo is making efforts to obtain a police extract and/or court affidavit to enable him acquire a new Nigerian passport, apparently to facilitate his escape out of the country.

“In addition, he should be arrested wherever and whenever sighted and referred to the Director-General, Department of State Services vide letter no: S.605/A/246 dated 05 July 2021.”

Sunday Igboho, who spearheads the separatist agitation for the Yoruba Nation, had been declared wanted by the Department of State Services on allegations of stockpiling arms to destabilise the country, which he has since denied.

A Lagos State resident whose identity has yet to be known has reportedly died after he was matched at the Nigerian Customs office in Lagos while trying to buy cheap rice, Aso Naija Reports.

The deceased was on the queue with his wife when he fell down and couldn’t get up on time which resulted in people stamping on him.

An X user, Dr. Adunola, @yemoka who said the man died in her hospital, said that the deceased was trampled on after falling at the Customs office trying to get rice.

 

According to her, the deceased was on the queue with his wife when he fell down and couldn’t get up on time which resulted in people stamping on him.

She wrote, “A man just died in my hospital, he was stamped on after falling at the Customs office trying to get rice.

He was on the queue with his wife when he fell down and couldn’t get up on time which resulted in people stamping on him. So sad. Survived by very young children.”

 

Another X user shared another resident of the state who said that he was at the Customs office in the Yaba area of the State to buy rice and there were at least 10,000 people struggling to buy rice but uniformed officers from all forces were given special attention.

 

“I went to that Customs place in Yaba today to buy Rice. Let’s just say this country has zero chance of being better. They beat the shit out of us in the queue.

 

“Uniform officers from all forces were given priority. There are at least 10,000 people. When I had enough, I went back to my house. 5 hours wasted.

 

“The pressure of the people pulled down a section of their fence. Come and see the beating. They even beat one woman in a wheelchair. If you record and they catch you, they will seize your phone,” the resident said.

 

On Tuesday, the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) disclosed that its operatives will distribute all confiscated food products nationwide.

 

The Nigerian Customs Service spokesperson, CSC Abdullahi Maiwada, who made this known in a press statement said that the decision was taken to alleviate the current hardships faced by Nigerians and to solve serious problems of food security and the skyrocketing prices of basic food items in the country.
