He added that the conditional freedom was secured with the intervention of two prominent Yoruba indigenes, Professor Wole Soyinka and Professor Banji Akintoye.

“Praises should be given to two prominent Yoruba personalities, to wit, Professor Wole Soyinka and Professor”

Banji Akintoye for this turnaround in our client’s matter.”

Igboho and one of his wives, Ropo, were arrested by the International Criminal Police Organisation at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, the Republic of Benin on their way to Germany, on Monday, July 19, 2021.

The Yoruba Nation agitator was trying to make good his escape from Nigeria after a bloody midnight raid on his Ibadan house by operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS).


The midnight operation of the men of the secret police left one dead, just as 12 the supporters of Igboho were arrested.

Alliyu stated in the message: “I am to inform you that Chief Sunday Adeyemo (a.k.a Igboho Oosa) has been released from prison to his medical practitioners.

“His release is under the agreement that he should not leave.”
