Agitators for the secession of Yorubaland have begun a protest against the detention of one of the arrowheads of the movement, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho on Wednesday.
The move was first announced on Facebook in a statement signed by Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki.
He said the protest was one of the conditions given for his release, urging his loyalists to converge on Igboho’s Soka Ibadan residence for the demonstration.
The statement reads: “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!”
Igboho was arrested at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic on Monday night by security operatives in the West African country and consequently detained.
