Sunday Igboho Arrested In Cotonou, How It Happened

 The agitator and leader of the Yoruba Nation, Sunday Adeyemo, commonly called Sunday Igboho, who was arrested late Monday night may be paraded by the Department of State Services (DSS), before the media today in Abuja.

Daily Sun, reliably gathered that Igboho, who was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic, on his way to Germany, would be moved to the DSS headquarters upon his arrival to Nigeria.

It was gathered that the DSS may likely parade him before the media today or Thursday after the Sallah break.

A security source who did not want to be mentioned as he is not authorized to speak with the media, said there is jubilation in the security circle following the arrest which he described as the best gift for the Eid El Kabir celebrations.

The DSS is yet to issues a statement to confirm the arrest Sunday Igboho at the time of filing this report.

Fresh facts have emerged about how self-styled Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a. Sunday Igboho, was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic on Monday night.

Credible sources within the Benin Republic’s security services told LEADERSHIP on Tuesday morning that Igboho was arrested by the operatives of Brigade criminelle (Criminal Brigade) at the l’aĆ©roport international Bernadin Gantin (Cardinal Bernadin Gantin International Airport) in Cotonou on his way to an unnamed European country.

A source confided in our reporter that Igboho initially escaped before he was finally rearrested by the Beninese police.

“He tried to escape, but the police were able to grab him back. He is at the moment with the Brigade criminelle in Cotonou,” the security source said.

Another source earlier told LEADERSHIP that Igboho had presented a Beninese Passport to officials at the l’aĆ©roport international Bernadin Gantin in Cotonou to travel to Germany when he was identified.

Sensing the trouble awaiting him, he was said to have tried to wriggle his way out but the Beninese officials turned down his overtures and immediately alerted other security officials, who effected his arrest.

“We have strict laws here in Benin Republic. Those peope who helped him obtained a Beninese Passport misled him because they didn’t tell him the danger ahead being a fugitive.

“If he had try a place like the neighbouring Togo, it would have been easy for him to escape to Europe but here in Benin Republic, it’s a hard nut to crack,” the source added.

LEADERSHIP reports that Igboho’s arrest is coming about three weeks after Nigeria’s Department of State Services (DSS) declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms, an allegation he has since denied.

The DSS had raided Igboho’s residence in the Soka area of Ibadan, Oyo State, on July 1, 2021, and arrested about 12 of his aides and killed two of them during a gun battle

The Federal Government had placed the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) on alert to stop Igboho from leaving the country.

DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, did not respond to a text message from our reporter seeking confirmation of the development.
