Fresh facts have emerged about how self-styled Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a. Sunday Igboho, was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic on Monday night.
Credible sources within the Benin Republic’s security services told LEADERSHIP on Tuesday morning that Igboho was arrested by the operatives of Brigade criminelle (Criminal Brigade) at the l’aéroport international Bernadin Gantin (Cardinal Bernadin Gantin International Airport) in Cotonou on his way to an unnamed European country.
A source confided in our reporter that Igboho initially escaped before he was finally rearrested by the Beninese police.
“He tried to escape, but the police were able to grab him back. He is at the moment with the Brigade criminelle in Cotonou,” the security source said.
Another source earlier Mentioned that Igboho had presented a Beninese Passport to officials at the l’aéroport international Bernadin Gantin in Cotonou to travel to Germany when he was identified.
Sensing the trouble awaiting him, he was said to have tried to wriggle his way out but the Beninese officials turned down his overtures and immediately alerted other security officials, who effected his arrest.
“We have strict laws here in the Benin Republic. Those people who helped him obtained a Beninese Passport misled him because they didn’t tell him the danger ahead of being a fugitive.
