Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho, has reportedly been arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic, according to local sources.
He was arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night, a top source familiar with the matter told local media.
Igboho was arrested by the security forces in Benin Republic about three weeks after the Department of State Services declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms, an allegation he has since denied.
According to sources, he will be repatriated to Nigeria on Tuesday from Benin Republic, one of Nigeria’s neighbouring countries in the West African sub region.
“He was arrested in Cotonou while he tried to travel out on Monday night. His destination was Germany. The security forces in Benin Republic should repatriate him to Nigeria on Tuesday,” the source said.
