Sunday Igboho: Sanwo-Olu breaks silence, says people are working privately

He said this in response to a question about why Southwest leaders were silent about the arrest of a Yoruba nation freedom fighter by the Benin Republic government

The arrest of Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo, popularly identified as Sunday Igboho, in Cotonou, Benin Republic, has incited Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State to respond.

While speaking to the press at Polling Unit 019 Ward 08, Ikoyi II, where he did vote in the Local Government/Council Areas election on Saturday, Sanwo-Olu communicated that some stakeholders in the region are working tirelessly to prevent Igboho from being arrested and imprisoned in the West African country and such effort is meant to be done without attracting public’s attention.

He said this in response to a question about why Southwest leaders were silent about the arrest of a Yoruba nation freedom fighter by the Benin Republic government.

Sanwo-Olu in response unfolded that

These are very difficult times for all of us.

I can assure you that people are working behind the scenes.At occasions like this, it’s not by how many press people you call.

I’m aware that a lot of people have responses that they are doing quietly and privately and it doesn’t have to be a public conversation

Igboho and his wife were apprehended on Monday at a Cotonou airport while purportedly attempting to escape to Germany.

After a hearing on the activist’s extradition to Nigeria, his wife was released on Thursday, but Igboho was detained after the hearing was adjourned.
