It was reported today that a popular Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemi, popularly known as Sunday Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
Based on that, a Yoruba leader, Professor Banji Akintoye who is the leader of Ilana Omo Oodua, has confirmed that Sunday Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, the Benin Republic capital.
While speaking, Prof Akintoye made it known that plans are already underway to prevent his extradition to Nigeria. He went on and revealed that Yoruba patriots are making plans so as to prevent his extradition.
According to Daily Post report, Prof Akintoye made this disclosure in a statement that was signed by the Yoruba leader. He further called on well meaning Yoruba people within and outside the country to come out and make sure that Yoruba land is not defeated by invaders.
I still don’t think that arresting Sunday Igboho or Nnamdi Kanu will solve this problem of agitation. I also don’t think that the federal government is doing the right thing by arresting Sunday Igboho. If things are being done properly in Nigeria, I don’t think that there will be any need for this agitation.
All we need now in Nigeria is equality. Every Nigerian must be treated the same way because no one is more Nigerian than the other.
