Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as ‘Igboho’, cannot leave Benin Republic, ‘due to security reasons’, POLITICS NIGERIA reports.

A source privy to Igboho’s release said that the self-styled activist is a political prisoner, adding that there are no charges against him till now, following monthslong investigation by the Beninese Government.

“When a political prisoner is to be released, there is always a reason why such a person is being released, and he has not done anything wrong. He is not facing any charge either in Nigeria or Benin Republic.

“They only remanded him to pave way for their investigation and they have investigated him for more than seven months and nothing was found against him. They have no reason to hold him against their laws. You can’t detain anybody more than six months in Benin without charges,” Vanguard quotes the source as saying.

Since news of Igboho’s conditional release was made known on Monday, his supporters have been in joyous mood, anticipating his arrival to Nigeria. He had been arrested last year enroute to Germany.

  1. HIS SUPPORTERS ARE DUNCES LIKE HIM. BIRDS OF SAME FEATHERS OF THE UNINFORMED.

    I had put out the right perspective when the News break. His MISGUIDED MISINFORMED followers still claim he did nothing wrong and there was no lawyer good enough to fight for his release over seven months with another six months added.
    POLITICAL PRISONER! DID HE REPORT SUCH STATUS WHEN HE ENTERED THE REPUBLIC OF BENIN, ILLEGALY? AS STIPULATED BY THE CHARTERS THEY QUOTED ERRONOUSLY.

    You must report and declare the status of a political prisoner at point of entry of a country of safe haven. DID HE? he was arrested fleeing Benin enroute Germany. The security agencies that went to his house and scurried some items including his PASSPORTS and TRAVEL documents and were displayed to pressmen.

    THEREFORE, WHAT DOCUMENTS DID HE TRAVELLED WITH WHEN THEY WERE ALREADY IN POSSESION OF THE DSS. MUST HAVE BEEN FAKE PAPERS. NOT MINDING THE ARSON AT Igbagan AND INVASION OF THE NIGERIAN BORDER POST AT Seme IN HIS NAME.

    SO MUCH FOR DOING NOTHING WRONG.
