Olayomi Koiki, an aide to Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has called for a protest against his principal’s arrest.
Koiki disclosed that the agitators would stage the protest on Wednesday afternoon in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
According to him, the protesters would demand the release of Igboho held in Benin Republic.
A terse statement by Koiki reads: “Emergency, emergency, emergency, emergency.
“Please we beg all agitators to converge at Chief Sunday Igboho’s house for a peaceful demonstration to show the world the kind of person he is as one of the conditions given for his release.
“Please let’s all be at his house in Soka, Ibadan, before 12 o’clock today, thanks and God bless Yoruba nation now.”
Igboho was arrested at an airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic, on Monday night.
The Oduduwa Republic agitator was said to have been arrested by Beninoise authorities while on his way to Germany.
This is coming shortly after the Department of State Services, DSS, had declared him wanted after an invasion of his residence.
DSS operatives had recently invaded Igboho’s residence in Ibadan and recovered weapons and charms.
Although the agitator escaped, some of his allies were arrested and others allegedly killed.
