Yoruba Nation Agitator, Sunday Igboho Returns To Nigeria After 3 Years In Exile

2 Min Read

Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Igboho Oosa, has returned to Nigeria.

A statement by Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, confirmed that the Yoruba Nation activist was in the country for his late 75-year-old mother’s burial in Igboho town, Oyo State.

Koiki disclosed this in a terse statement accompanied by a video via his X page on Thursday.

In the video, Igboho could be seen with some people believed to be at the mortuary. He wrote: “I can confirm that Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho is currently on his way to Igboho Town for the final burial of his mother Mrs SA Adeyemo.

“The body of Mrs. SA Adeyemo was picked up from the mortuary in Saki Town some few hours ago.”

Igboho has been out of Nigeria since 2021 when he eloped to Benin Republic after he was declared wanted by the Department of State Services, DSS.

DSS had invaded his home in the Soka area of Oyo State over alleged terrorism charges. The secret police had declared him wanted over his agitation for the Yoruba Nation and attacks on Fulani herders accused of having attacked farmers in the Southwest.

In the Benin Republic, Igboho was arrested and remanded while attempting to travel to Germany. However, he recently regained his freedom after two years in a Beniese prison.

While detained in Benin Republic, Igboho lost his mother who lived in Saki, Oyo State.
