Sunday Adeyemo a well-known Yoruba Nation agitator popularly known as Sunday Igboho was captured in the Cotonou, Benin Republic. On Monday night, security personnel captured him in an airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

The Department of State Services(DSS) recently proclaimed Igboho wanted for allegedly jeopardizing the country’s cooperate stability.

“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.”
