Yoruba Nation agitators staged a protest in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Wednesday afternoon to demand the release of their leader, Sunday Igboho in Benin Republic.
Recall that Igboho was arrested on Monday night in Cotonou, about two weeks after he was declared wanted by the Department of State Services (DSS).
The DSS had raided the home of Igboho in Ibadan and arrested his aides.
In a Facebook post shared on Wednesday morning, Igboho’s spokesperson, Olayomi Koiki, announced the planned protest.
The post read, “EMERGENCY EMERGENCY EMERGENCY EMERGENCY, PLEASE WE BEG ALL AGITATORS TO CONVERGE AT CHIEF SUNDAY IGBOHO 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 LETS ALL BE AT HIS HOUSE IN SOKA IBADAN BEFORE 12 O CLOCK TODAY THANKS AND GOD BLESS. YORUBA NATION NOW NOW NOW.”
