Agbekoya threatens to free Sunday Igboho from detention with traditional powers

Sunday Igboho Adeyemo

President of Agbekoya Worldwide Kamorudeen Okiki on Thursday threatened that the group would release by traditional means the Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho from detention in Benin Republic if he is not freed by the country’s justice system.

Okiki stated this in Osogbo, Osun State during a peaceful rally held by the group, where it also demanded the restructuring of the country.

Speaking further after he had delivered a letter containing seven-point demand of the group to Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun, in his palace following a successful rally on major streets in the state capital, Okiki also lamented the high rate of corruption in government business.

He said, “Sunday Igboho is not a criminal. We will continue to say that. We know that it is the Federal Government that is holding Igboho in Benin Republic, but we are telling Benin Republic authorities now to legally release him using their court.

“They should release him legally and quickly because they are not taking him to court again, or we will use our traditional means and powers to take Igboho out of detention.

“We are Agbekoya, if they don’t release Sunday Igboho legally, we are going to take him out of Benin Republic. They will just see that Sunday Igboho is out of their prison.”

Sunday Igboho has been in the custody of Benin Republic since last year when he was arrested while trying to board a flight to Germany with his wife.

Before that time, Nigeria’s Department of State Services (DSS) had declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling ammunition following a raid on his Ibadan residence on June 1, 2021.
