Protest rocks Ibadan over Igboho’s arrest in Benin Republic
Protest rocked Ibadan, Oyo State today following the arrest of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
Igboho was arrested by Interpol at the Cotonou Airport on Monday night while trying to board a plane to Germany with his wife Ropo.
On Wednesday, protesters armed with placards took to the streets in Ibadan demanding the release of Igboho by the Benin Republic authorities.
The protesters stormed Challenge in Ibadan with placards, some of which read: “I stand with Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho Osaa,” “Free Igboho now, I stand with Sunday Igboho Osaa,” among others.
The protesters were chanting ‘Yoruba Nation, Igboho, Osaa’ and ‘free Igboho now.’
Though peaceful, the protest temporarily caused mild traffic in Challenge and the protesters sang the praise of Igboho, saying that they would not renege on demanding for Yoruba Nation.
