After 26-Month Self-exile Sunday Igboho Returns to Nigeria

Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also referred to as Sunday Igboho, a foremost Yoruba Nation activist, has returned to Nigeria.

Spokesman for the Yoruba Nation activist, Olayomi Koiki, said in a statement that he was in Saki, Oyo State for his mother’s funeral, who died while he was imprisoned in Benin Republic

The Muhammadu Buhari administration had pressured the authorities in Benin Republic to deport Igboho to Nigeria for trial but was declined.

Ex-Pres. Olusegun Obasanjo and Prof. Wole Soyinka had visited Igboho in Cotonou and held meetings with Benin authorities.

On Thursday, February 22, Koiki revealed this on his X page with a brief statement and a video.

Igboho was seen in the video with a few individuals who were reportedly present at the mortuary.

“I can confirm that Chief Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, is currently on his way to Igboho Town for his mother MRS. S.A.ADEYEMO’s final burial,” he wrote.

“A few hours ago, the body of Mrs. S.A. Adeyemo was taken from the mortuary in Saki Town.”
