Sunday Adeyemo who is also known as Sunday Igboho has narrated how he was arrested by security operatives in the Benin Republic.

According to him, his wife, Ropo was used as bait to arrest him while traveling to Germany last year.

The Yoruba Nation activist who is currently in Cotonou, the capital of the Republic of Benin disclosed that he would return back to Nigeria soon.

Explaining how he was arrested, he said: “My wife (Ropo) was detained at the (Cadjèhoun) Airport for about two hours. They were ready to hold onto her if I didn’t show up.

“Then I showed up and the security agents handcuffed my hands and legs. If I knew that could happen, I wouldn’t allow her to follow me to the airport.

“She had already obtained my traveling document from the German government and I would have asked her to go separately but God knew how everything went that way.”

Speaking on when he would return back to Nigeria, he said: “I am going back to Nigeria soon.”

When asked how soon because the DSS declared him wanted, Igboho referred to the September 2021 judgment by Justice Ladiran Akintola of Oyo High Court which declared the action of the DSS illegal, “arbitrary aggression and prejudices” and awarded N20bn damages against it.
