Gwg reports that Yomi Alliyu (SAN), the lead counsel of the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo well known as Sunday Igboho, has revealed how he was arrested with his wife Ropo, in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
According to the lawyer, Sunday Igboho and his wife were apprehended by the International Criminal Police Organisation (INTERPOL).
The lawyer made the disclosure via a statement on Tuesday.
He further stated that the Federal Government of Nigeria through INTERPOL arrested Sunday Igboho and his wife, who is a German citizen, on Monday night at an airport in Benin Republic.
The senior advocate noted that Igboho was arrested while he tried to catch a flight to Germany with his wife.
Aliyu, who described the arrest of his client as shocking, urged the government of Germany, Benin Republic, and the international community “to rise up and curb the impunity of the Nigerian Government by refusing any application for extradition of our Client who already has an application before the International Criminal Court duly acknowledged”.
Since the arrest of Sunday Igboho, supporters of the yoruba freedom fighter have called for his release.
