Legal route cannot set me free from Benin prison, Igboho cries out
Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo p.ka. Sunday Igboho, has claimed legal route cannot set him free from the Benin Republic prison where he’s been detained.
NewsWireNGR recalls Igboho was arrested in Cotonou by security operatives while he was trying to flee the continent to Germany.
The Yoruba nation agitator has spent over 161 days in detention with no probable date of getting freedom.
Speaking in a podcast on Tuesday evening, Igboho’s spokesperson, Olayomi Koiki, alleged that the Benin Republic President, Patrice Talon, was working with the Federal Government to extradite Igboho to Nigeria.
His words: “So many people have heard rumours in the past 24/48 hours. We know that God almighty is watching.

“If they are trying, they cannot be successful. If they are planning evil against Prof. Banji Akintoye and others, they are only trying but God’s power is superior.
“The enemies are trying to eliminate him (Igboho). Their plan is to eliminate him so that the Yoruba Nation agenda will be silenced, but God has shown that he is above them.
“If you think the legal route is what will set Igboho free, then we are wasting our time.
“Benin Republic judicial system is not working. Look at the way his case has been prolonged.
“I’ve spoken with our lawyer in Benin, and he told me that only the president can set him free.
“Now, diplomacy cannot work. We have to fight for our rights.
“See the way they killed MKO Abiola, Funsho Williams – they were killed unjustly.
“We’ve issued so many ultimata for Igboho’s release, but nothing has happened.”
