Self-acclaimed activist and a strong voice for the Yoruba secession agitators, Sunday Adeyemo (a.k.a Sunday Igboho) has been placed on stop-list by the federal government for planning to flee Nigeria.
This was indicated in a letter dated July 9 and signed by A.B. Baba, assistant comptroller general of immigration, investigation and compliance, on behalf of the comptroller general of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).
The letter titled “Stop-listing of person” is addressed to the director-general of the DSS, the inspector-general of police, the director-general, National Intelligence Agency, and all zonal coordinators and control posts of the NIS.
The letter carries the information of “Adeyemo Sunday Adeniyi (aka Sunday Igboho), male, Nigerian, passport number A11613637, date of birth 10/10/1972”.
For better understanding, anybody whose name is on a stop-list is prevented from accessing specific privileges or rights he or she ought to enjoy.
NIS in the letter claimed that Sunday Igboho is planning to acquire a new Nigerian passport to facilitate his escape from Nigeria.
“I am directed to request that you kindly place the above-named person on stop-list.
“Credible intelligence revealed that Adeyemo is making efforts to obtain a police extract and/or court affidavit to enable him acquire a new Nigerian passport, apparently to facilitate his escape out of the country.
“In addition, he should be arrested wherever and whenever sighted and referred to the Director-General, Department of State Services vide letter no: S.605/A/246 dated 05 July 2021,” the letter reads.
Recall NewsWireNGR had reported that on July 1st, a joint team of security operatives raided the residence of Sunday Igboho at Soka, Ibadan, Oyo state.
The Department of State Services (DSS) consequently declared him wanted while claiming it recovered arms from the residence.
In retaliation, Sunday Igboho, through his legal counsel, Chief Yomi Alliyu SAN, sued the DSS for attacking and damaging his house, alleging that the DSS operatives intended to kill him.
Aliyu asked the Federal Government to sanction the DSS operatives, free all the people arrested and also demanded the payment of N500 million to Igboho as compensation for the damage to his exotic cars, including a Mercedes Benz G-Class and 2019 Lexus car, among others.
