Pelumi Olajengbesi, lawyer to Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, has disclosed how the Oduduwa Republic agitator was arrested.
According to Olajengbesi, Igboho was not arrested. Rather, he surrendered himself to security agents.
“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.
“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,” he told newsmen on Tuesday.
Igboho was arrested by security operatives in an airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic, while trying to flee to Germany.
Efforts are said to be ongoing towards repatriating him to Nigeria.
