Yoruba activist and separatist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly referred to as Sunday Igboho, has reportedly been arrested.
Igboho’s arrest comes weeks after that of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Nnamdi Kanu who is currently awaiting trial was arrested abroad and extradited to Nigeria.
According to multiple sources, Sunday Igboho was nabbed in Cotonou, Benin Republic while attempting to flee from Nigeria to Germany.
It was gathered that Igboho would be returned to Nigeria shortly by the security forces in the West African country where he was arrested; while trying to escape.
Recall that the Department of State Services (DSS) had declared Igboho wanted after they successfully raided his residence on July 1.
Two aides to the Yoruba nation agitator were shot dead and twelve suspects arrested during the operation, while some DSS operatives sustained injuries during a gun battle.
The DSS Spokesman Peter Afunanya said the gun duel which lasted for an hour offered Igboho the chance to escape.
Afunanya who had stated during a press briefing at DSS headquarters that Igboho would be tracked, could not be reached at the time of filing this report.
