Information reaching us says Yoruba Nation agitators will on Wednesday afternoon stage a protest in Ibadan, Oyo State to demand the release of their embattled leader Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho in the Benin Republic.
Igboho was arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night alongside his wife as they were about to fly to Germany. They are still being held by the Beninese authorities. The group had last week protested against the raid of Igboho’s residence by operatives of the Department of State Services(DSS) and demanded the release of those arrested in Igboho’s house.
