Yoruba Nation Activist Sunday Igboho Returns To Nigeria

By Glam & Essence


Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Igboho, has returned to Nigeria, almost three years after fleeing the country for the Republic of Benin.
A statement by Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, confirmed that the Yoruba Nation activist was in the country for his mother’s burial,who died while he was incarcerated in the Benin Republic in 2023.
Igboho was seen in a video posted online waving to the people of Igboho town as he arrived for his mother’s final funeral rites.
The burial is scheduled to take place in Igboho and Ibadan.
Igboho had fled Nigeria in 2021,following a bloody confrontation between his aides and DSS operatives who stormed his residence in the Soka area of Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.
He had been in the forefront of agitating for the independence of Yoruba people mostly in south western Nigeria at the time.
Igboho fled to the Benin Republic after he was declared wanted by the Department of State Services (DSS),where he
was later detained in October 2021 ,while trying to fly to Germany.
The charge made against him by the Republic of Benin government at the time was that Igboho was“associating with criminals”.
He was later released after two years in a Beninese prison.
