The State Services Department (DSS) has kept silent over the arrest of Yoruba Nation Activist Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho in Cotonou, Benin Republic on Monday.
At the time that the report was submitted, the DSS Spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunanya, did not respond to calls and messages.
Igboho’s lawyer, Chief Yomi Aliu (SAN), who confirmed the arrest of his client in Cotonou, Benin Republic, said Igboho was arrested with his wife, Ropo, a German citizen.
Aliu also revealed that lawyers in Benin Republic would be engaged to defend Igboho’s rights against extradition.
The DSS on July 1, 2021, declared Igboho wanted after a joint team of security operatives raided the Yoruba Nation agitator’s residence in Soka, Ibadan, Oyo State around 1.34 am on allegations he was stockpiling arms.
Afunanya had said two of Igboho’s men were killed in the gunfire that followed the raid and 13 persons were arrested from Igboho’s home.
He said Igboho escaped during the gun battle that lasted an hour.
