Yoruba Nation agitator and separatist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, has been arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic, security sources have told OlamondTVAfrica .

He was arrested at an airport in Cotonou on the night of Monday, July 19.

Igboho had gone into hiding on July 1, after operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) raided his home, shot some of the occupants, made arrests and uncovered weaponry. 

The raid occurred only hours before Igboho’s secessionist-themed rally in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital and most populous city.

Olamond Naija has learned that Igboho will be repatriated to Nigeria on Tuesday, July 20 from Benin Republic.

“He was arrested in Cotonou while he tried to travel out on Monday night. His destination was Germany. The security forces in Benin Republic should repatriate him to Nigeria on Tuesday,” Punch quotes a security source as saying.

Nigeria’s federal government has been cracking down on separatists, with Biafra Nation agitator, Nnamdi Kanu, arrested in another African nation in June.
