According to his lawyer, the successionist handed himself over to security operatives because he believes that the journey to justice for the Yoruba people to be able to live in peace may be needed for him to be available..





Pelumi Olajengbesi, the legal counsel of Oduduwa Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has confirmed his arrest, stating that he surrendered himself to security operatives and could not have been arrested.

Igboho had reportedly been arrested on Monday night in Cotonou as sources noted that he was heading for Germany.


He was, however, nabbed by security operatives in the neighbouring country.


Speaking with SaharaReporters on Tuesday morning, Olajengbesi said,

“Truly he was arrested and I have confirmed that. We are making efforts to ensure that he is fine. You know the Department of State Services declared him wanted. We just believe that Sunday Igboho is not the problem. He is someone who believed that the Yoruba people and Nigerians generally should live in peace wherever they are.

“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.”

Reports have it that he was supposed to travel to Germany through Cotonou last night.
