According to recent reports, the lawyer of Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Igboho, has revealed that his client is planning to return to Nigeria. Igboho, who has been residing in Benin Republic after his arrest in July 2021, is said to be preparing for his return to continue his activism in the push for self-determination for the Yoruba people.
The lawyer mentioned that Igboho’s legal team is working on the necessary arrangements to facilitate his return, including ensuring his safety and addressing any legal issues that may arise. It is unclear at this time when exactly Igboho plans to return and what actions the Nigerian government may take upon his arrival.
It is worth noting that Igboho is currently facing extradition charges in Benin Republic, where he was arrested while attempting to travel to Germany. The Nigerian government has been seeking his extradition to face charges in Nigeria related to alleged criminal activities, including illegal possession of firearms and incitement to violence.
The situation surrounding Igboho remains dynamic, and further developments are expected as his return to Nigeria draws closer.
