SUNDAY IGBOHO ARRESTED WITH NIGERIAN, GERMAN PASSPORTS -LAWYER

By Oladeji Showunmi

Ibrahim David Salami, the Benin Republic counsel for Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has stated that the rights activist was arrested with Nigerian and German passports.
This is in contrast to claims that Igboho was prosecuted for having a Benin passport despite not being a citizen of the country.
Salami told BBC Yoruba, “It is not true that his Benin Republic passport was discovered when he was arrested on Sunday Igboho.”

“A Nigerian and a German passport were discovered on him. At the time of her arrest, his wife was carrying only her German passport.”
Following the bloody raid on Igboho’s Sooka residence, the Department of State Services arrested and detained 13 of Igboho’s associates, claiming that two of Igboho’s supporters, later identified as Adogan and Alfa, were killed during a “gun duel.”

DSS had presented seven AK-47 rifles allegedly recovered during the July 1 raid on Igboho’s house, as well as three pump-action guns, 30 fully charged AK-47 magazines, 5,000 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, five cutlasses, one jack-knife, one pen knife, two pistol holsters, a pair of binoculars, a $5 wallet, local and international driving licenses in his name, ATM cards,

Three charm jackets/traditional body armour, two laptops, one Toshiba and one Compaq laptop, Igboho’s passport and those of his aides were also among the items.
Meanwhile, the Federal Government announced on July 17 that Sunday Igboho is attempting to obtain a new passport in order to flee the country.
It went on to say that the government had placed Igboho on a no-fly list in order to facilitate his arrest and had directed security agencies to apprehend him wherever he was found.
A person whose name is on the stop-list is denied all constitutional rights and privileges to which a citizen is entitled in the security circle.

The Federal Government’s directive against Igboho was contained in a letter dated July 9, 2021, from the Nigeria Immigration Service to the Director-General, Department of State Services, the Inspector General of Police, and the Director-General, National Intelligence Agency.
The activist, a leader of the Yoruba separatist movement, had been declared wanted by the Department of State Services on allegations of stockpiling weapons to destabilize the country, which he has denied.
