Sunday Igboho: Yoruba nation agitators protest in Ibadan
Yoruba Nation agitators have made good their plan to stage a protest in Ibadan to demand the release of Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.
Recall that Sunday Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic on Monday night. He and his wife, Ropo, were planning to fly to Germany when they were both arrested.
The protesters on Wednesday gathered at Soka Bus Stop along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Bearing various placards they chanted as they moved demanding that Sunday Igboho be released.
The protesters called on Yoruba leaders and the international community to ensure his release.
However, armed policemen have dispersed the protesters.
Before the protest, Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, on his Facebook account, said the protest was one of the conditions given for his release. He urged supporters to converge on Igboho’s Soka Ibadan residence for the demonstration.
“Emergency, emergency, emergency, emergency, please we beg all agitators to converge at Chief Sunday Igboho’s house for a peaceful demonstration to show the world the kind of person he is as one of the conditions given for his release, please let’s all be at his house in Soka, Ibadan before 12 o clock today. Thanks and God bless. Yoruba nation now now now!”
