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.

Persecondnews reports that 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.”

Persecondnews recalls that Igboho left Nigeria in July 2021 for Benin Republic after he disappeared mysteriously following a weehours bloody attack on his Ibadan residence in Oyo State by the Department of State Services (DSS).

At least two of Igboho’s aides were killed while 12 others including a woman were arrested and whisked to Abuja and detained for several months.

They were released on bail following judicial intervention.

Igboho had waged a relentless “war” against Fulani herdsmen who were attacking farms and farmers in the Southwest.

Igboho was, however, arrested and placed under house arrest in Benin Republic while boarding a flight to Germany with his wife.

He regained his freedom late last year after two years in detention in Benin Republic and immediately flew to Germany with his wife.
