Spokesman of embattled Yoruba nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho), Mr. Olayomi Koiki, said plans are afoot to kill his principal in Benin Republic detention.
Koiki’s allegation was contained in a live podcast wherein he also alleged that Beninese President Patrice Talon and the Federal Government were working on extraditing Igboho back to Nigeria.
According to him: “So many people have heard rumours in the past 24 to 48 hours. We know that God Almighty is watching. If they are trying, they cannot be successful. If they are planning evil against Prof. Banji Akintoye and the others, they are only trying, but God’s power is superior.
“The enemies are trying to eliminate him (Igboho); their plan is to eliminate him so that the Yoruba Nation agenda will be silenced. But God has shown that He is above them.
“If you think the legal route is what will set Igboho free, then we are wasting our time. Benin Republic judicial system is not working. Look at the way his case has been prolonged. I’ve spoken with our lawyer in Benin, and he told me that only the President can set him (Igboho) free.
“Now, diplomacy cannot work. We have to fight for our rights. See the way they killed M. K. O. Abiola, Funsho Williams. They were killed unjustly. We’ve issued so many ultimatums for Igboho’s release, but nothing has happened.”
