Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba Nation agitator, has disputed charges made by the Nigerian government that he was involved in arms trafficking or instigating violence.

In an interview on Tuesday, his lead counsel, Ibrahim Salami, stated that Igboho told the judge that the Nigerian government had placed him on a watchlist for battling against killer herdsmen.

In an interview with BBC Yoruba, Salami said that Igboho is facing new allegations related to illegal migration, suspicious collusion with immigration agents, and an attempt to incite public disorder.

Igboho and his wife, Ropo, were arrested on Monday, July 19, 2021, at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Republic of Benin, while traveling to Germany, according to the PUNCH.

When quizzed by the judge, the lawyer quoted Igboho as saying, “Igboho explained that what was said about him are false.

“He explained that he did not do anything illegal in Nigeria. He clarified that Nigeria has never charged him to court or jailed for any offence, he was never arrested for any offence or invited to Police Station.

“Igboho said he never had any criminal record in Nigeria. He told the judge that the Nigerian government was after him because he was defending the Yoruba race against killer Fulani herdsmen.

“He said that he ran away from Nigeria because the government was after his life.

“He was asked when he got to benin, how he got in and how long. Igboho replied that he left Nigeria on Sunday, got to Benin on Monday and attempted to leave Monday night to Germany before he was arrested.

“The judge asked him where he stayed, who drove him and how he escaped security checks. He replied.

“What is surprising is that the judge said he was not arrested because he committed offence. He said he breached Benin rules and he should be investigated.”
