Sunday Igboho Praises Obasanjo, Soyinka, and Others After Release from Custody [VIDEO]

Yoruba Nation activist Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has been released from prison in Benin after two years of trial.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Igboho was arrested in July 2021 at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Benin, on his way to Germany.

He had fled Nigeria after a bloody raid on his residence in Ibadan, Oyo State, by the Department of State Services (DSS), which accused him of stockpiling arms.

In a statement released on his Instagram handle, Igboho praised former president Olusegun Obasanjo, Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka, Professor Banji Akintoye, Ayo Adebanjo, and several traditional rulers for the roles they played in securing his release.

I give special thanks to President Talon of Benin Republic and to all members of his cabinet,” Igboho said. “My gratitude goes to my heroic father, Professor Banji Akintoye, and Professor Wole Soyinka for their support in the course of the struggle. May God reward you Baba for your standing courageously for our Yoruba nation and me. You promised to stand by me through my ordeal in Benin Republic and you have fulfilled your promise.”

Igboho also thanked the traditional rulers of Yoruba land for their support. “Although I have many Obas on my list, Olugbon of Orile Igbon and deputy chairman, Oyo State Council of Obas, Oba Francis Olushola Alao, Kabiesi Oba Topspin o ni Bariga of Bariga, Oba Tejuoso, Oni Kenta of Orile Kenta, Olugbo of Ugbo kingdom, Oba Fredrick Akinruntan Obateru, thanks immensely for your love,” he said.
