It has been revealed why Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known Sunday Igboho has not been released by the government of Benin Republic.
His lawyer, Ibrahim Salami disclosed the reason on Monday in exclusive interview with BBC.
He noted that igboho has not been released because of his safety and security.
Salami said: “I believe the government of Benin Republic will be just. I believe Sunday Igboho is being held in custody here because of his own security.”
“But it is taking long now. We are taking it easy with the government of Benin. We’ve been in discussion with them to release him so that he can take care of himself medically.”
Recall that DAILY GIST had reported how Ighoho’s house in Soka area of Ibadan, Oyo state was attacked by the operatives of DSS
The Department of State Services(DSS) confirmed that its responsible for the attack on Sunday Igboho’s house.
DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya disclosed this in a statement made available to Journalists.
According to Peter, The raid was based on intelligence that Igboho had allegedly stockpiled arms and ammunition in his house.
But Igboho in a statement released by his media aide, Koiki said the weapons paraded by the DSS as recovered from his house did not belong to him.
Igboho noted that the guns found in his house were ‘government magic stating that he used traditional power to protect himself instead rather than guns.
The activist added that there was no prior invitation sent to him by the agency neither was any search warrant used by the officers who invaded his home.
According to him, the invasion at his house was an attempt by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to silence him so the killer-herdsmen, whom he always antagonized, will take over the South-West region.
