The spokesman of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, Olayomi Koiki, has noted that President Muhammadu Buhari-led government can’t intimidate agitators.
Koiki stated this on Wednesday in a Facebook live as his principal spends his second night in a police cell in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
“We are not going to allow the government to intimidate us. We are not going to allow the Federal Government and politicians to deceive us.”
“We must remain strong and remain calm as we get freedom for Chief Sunday Igboho and the Yoruba race,” he said.
In a related development, Nigeria’s Ambassador to the Benin Republic, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai (retd.), has been fingered as the brain behind the arrest of the Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.
Naija News had earlier reported that Sunday Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
Igboho alongside his wife, Mrs Ropo Adeyemo, was arrested at the Cotonou Cadjehoun Airport on Monday night while attempting to flee to Germany.
