A delegation led by Olubadan has been dispatched to Cotonou
It was announced today that the Olubadan (ruler of Ibadanland) has sent a delegation to Cotonou, Benin Republic, in connection with the case of Yoruba Nation activist Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
First-class monarch’s media and publicity director Adeola Oloko did not reveal the identity of the delegation’s members. Sunday Igboho, he said, was the subject of the delegation’s visit. He also said that he would not allow a “repeat of the Yoruba-Fulani coalition of 1814”. Balogun Oderinlo, commander of the Ibadan army, repelled the attack and stopped the incursion near Osogbo, he said. “Students of Nigerian history may be interested in being reminded of this fact,” he said.
His five lawyers were unable to convince the prosecutor that he had nothing to answer. In contrast, the Beninese authorities have freed Ropo, the agitator’s wife, who was arrested with her husband on Monday, July 19, 2021. At Cotonou’s Cadjèhoun Airport on July 19, 2021, the International Criminal Police Organisation was on its way to Germany. Igboho, for his part, was taken into police custody and later released. “Igboho was on the list because of alleged trafficking in arms, inciting violence that could cause social unrest, and causing disunity in Nigeria,” said the lawyers.
There are Yoruba monarchs who are rallying to the cause of the Yoruba rights activist.
