Yoruba Nation agitators on Wednesday gathered at Soka Bus Stop along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to stage a protest in Ibadan to demand the release of Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.
Recall that Sunday Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic on Monday night. He and his wife, Ropo, were planning to fly to Germany when they were both arrested.
Carrying various placards, the protesters chanted as they moved calling on Yoruba leaders and the international community to ensure that Sunday Igboho is released.
Earlier, Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, on his Facebook account, said the protest was one of the conditions given for his release. He urged supporters to converge on Igboho’s Soka Ibadan residence for the demonstration.
“Emergency, emergency, emergency, emergency, please we beg all agitators to converge at Chief Sunday Igboho’s house for a peaceful demonstration to show the world the kind of person he is as one of the conditions given for his release, please let’s all be at his house in Soka, Ibadan before 12 o clock today. Thanks and God bless. Yoruba nation now now now!”
However, armed policemen later dispersed the protesters.
