The leader of Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), Professor Emeritus Banji Akintoye, has said the Republic of Benin may reject the extradition of Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

Earlier today, it was reported that Sunday Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic.


He was arrested at the Cotonou Cadjehoun Airport on Monday night while attempting to flee to Germany, a top source familiar with the matter revealed.


Igboho was arrested by the security forces in Benin Republic about three weeks after the Department of State Services declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms, an allegation he has since denied.


Speaking to newsmen, Prof. Akintoye stated that they are working hard to provide assistance for Ighoho towards preventing his extradition to Nigeria.


He said: “I received last night the troubling information that Chief Sunday Adeyemo fondly called Igboho had been arrested at the Cotonou Airport.


“I and other Patriots who are immediately available are now working to provide the assistance necessary to ensure that nobody will be able to do to him anything unlawful or primitive and to prevent him from being extradited into Nigeria which is strongly possible.


“Fortunately, Benin Republic is reliably a land of law where the authorities responsibly obey the law. We have secured the services of a leading and highly respected lawyer whom we can confidently rely on.


“What the situation now calls for is that the nation at home and in Diapora must stand strong, resolved that neither Sunday Igboho nor any other person will henceforth be subjected to inhuman or dehumanising treatment of any kind.


“We nation are, by the grace of God, a very strong nation. We must arise now to show that strength.


“For a start, we must all see to it now that Sunday Ighoho will get his freedom back so as to be able to move and operate as a free person. We all know he has committed no crime.”


He added: “We know that some people are trying to suppress or even eliminate him only because he stood up to defend his kinsmen, women and children who are being massively killed and raped in their ancestral home Land; who are having their assets and means of livelihood destroyed, and who are facing ethnic cleansing and even genocide without having the benefit of protection by the rulers of their country.


“We know, furthermore, that for the protection of his people who are being brutalised, he has joined hands with many of his brethren to take the legally-appropriate step, namely to seek the intervention of the International Criminal Court.”
