Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho has said that he is not afraid of Extradition to Nigeria.

The Activist who is currently being detained in a prison facility in Benin Republic, stated that he has accepted his fate and is ready to be extradited to Nigeria adding that he was not scared.

It can be recalled that Igboho was arrested alongside his wife, Ropo, at Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou by Benin Republic’s security officials as he tried to escape to Germany.

According to Sahara reporters, Igboho made this statement in a leaked audio tape. He said;

“My journey in life is between me and my God, I have accepted my fate where I’m currently. I’m not afraid of anything again, except my God. Even if taken before the Judge, I’ll tell him I’m not afraid of him except God. He can do anything to me.”

“Even if it’s Nigeria they want to take me to, I’m not afraid. At least Nnamdi Kanu is there, we are both fighting for the same cause. If they want to take me back to Nigeria, then no problem. I have been winning my cases in Nigeria, even (Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar) Malami was forced to appeal some of them. It got to a stage he claimed he wasn’t aware of DSS (Department of State Services) attack on my house. He claimed he didn’t send them.”

“It wasn’t the power of the Beninese government that made me to be here, it was because God wanted it like that. And I’m sure God will soon release me from prison even if all lawyers say they are not ready to defend me again. I’m not afraid of anything or anybody again. If it’s Nigeria, let them take me there.”
