One-time firebrand Yoruba Nation protagonist, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho has found his voice close to two years after he fled the shores of the nation. Now, he is blowing hot.
From his base in Benin Republic, he has announced via a now viral video that he is coming back to Nigeria. He waved aside any form of intimidation and insisted that the government is owing him two billion naira.
In his words: ” I am coming back to Ibadan; I’m originally from Oyo State. I’m coming back home. So, Yorubas should not be afraid and nothing will happen; nobody can make the other person afraid,” he said on Wednesday in a video footage released on the internet.
“My agitation was in place and the question I asked the Nigerian government was in order, and the court has justified my demands. Also, the N2billion Nigerian government owes me will be paid,” Igboho stated.
Recall that Igboho who also calls himself a freedom fighter for the southwestern people, fled to neighbouring Cotonou, Benin Republic over a year ago after his home in Ibadan was raided by men of the Department of States Services (DSS) and he was declared wanted.
The DSS had claimed that various ammunitions were found in his abode. According to them, seven AK 47 rifles, pump action guns and 5,000 rounds of ammunition were removed.
Furthermore, in Cotonou, Igboho tried moving to Germany but was arrested at the Cardinal Bernardin International Airport. He however sued the federal government for invasion of privacy and demanded for compensation.
