Sunday Igboho Will Be Released Soon –Lawyer
An Abuja-based human rights lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi has said that Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, will soon be released from detention in Benin Republic, aso Naija reports.
He made this known in a Facebook post on Sunday, scolding Yoruba leaders for allegedly being selfish.
Aso Naija reports that Sunday Igboho has spent over 200 days in Benin Republic detention since he was arrested at Cotonou airport en route to Germany alongside his wife in July 2020.
Olajengbesi, who secured the release of 12 Igboho’s aides arrested by operatives of the Department of State Service, noted that Igboho’s release would attract wild jubilation.
“Chief Sunday Igboho will be out very soon and there will be massive jubilation across the entire Yorubaland.
“He is no doubt a courageous man. This is very authoritative just that our Yoruba leaders should stop being selfish and allow good to prevail,” the lawyer said.
The President, Agbekoya Worldwide, Kamorudeen Okiki, who spoke in Osogbo on Thursday, said, “Sunday Igboho is not a criminal. We will continue to say that.
This is coming barely 48 hours after members of Agbekoya Worldwide asked the authorities of Benin Republic to free Sunday Igboho or they would use traditional means to get him out.
