How Sunday Igboho Was Arrested In Cotonou - Leadership

Published by Nairaland on Tue, 20 Jul 2021


<blockquote>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.<br><br><b>Credible sources within the Benin Republics security services told LEADERSHIP on Tuesday morning that Igboho was arrested by the operatives of Brigade criminelle (Criminal Brigade) at the laroport international Bernadin Gantin (Cardinal Bernadin Gantin International Airport) in Cotonou on his way to an unnamed European country.</b><br><br>A source confided in our reporter that Igboho initially escaped before he was finally rearrested by the Beninese police.<br><br><b>He tried to escape, but the police were able to grab him back. He is at the moment with the Brigade criminelle in Cotonou,</b> the security source said.<br><br>Another source earlier told LEADERSHIP that <b>Igboho had presented a Beninese Passport to officials at the laroport international Bernadin Gantin in Cotonou to travel to Germany when he was identified.</b><br><br><b>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.</b><br><br><b>We have strict laws here in Benin Republic. Those peope who helped him obtained a Beninese Passport misled him because they didnt tell him the danger ahead being a fugitive.<br><br>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, its a hard nut to crack,</b> the source added.<br><br>LEADERSHIP reports that Igbohos arrest is coming about three weeks after Nigerias Department of State Services (DSS) declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms, an allegation he has since denied.<br><br>The DSS had raided Igbohos 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<br><br>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.<br><br>DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, did not respond to a text message from our reporter seeking confirmation of the development. </blockquote><br><a rel=ugc href="https://leadership.ng/exclusive-how-sunday-igboho-was-arrested-in-cotonou/amp/'__twitter_impression=true"> SOURCE </a>
