JUST IN: Yoruba Nation Activist Sunday Igboho Returns to Nigeria, See Why [Video]

Yoruba Nation Activist Sunday Igboho has returned to Nigeria.

News-One Nigeria reports that Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, returned to Nigeria after two years.

This online news platform understands that Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, confirmed in a statement on Thursday, February 22, 2024, that the Yoruba Nation activist was in the country for his mother’s burial.

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.

The spokesman of the Yoruba Nation activist 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 S.A.ADEYEMO.

“The body of MRS S.A ADEYEMO was picked up from the mortuary in SAKI TOWN some few hours ago.”

Meanwhile, News-One recalls that Sunday 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.

Igboho was arrested in Benin Republic 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, Sunday Igboho lost his mother who lived in Saki, Oyo State, southwest Nigeria.
