The Yoruba Nation Agitator, Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Sunday Igboho said he had accepted is fate to be in detention at a prison facility in the Republic of Benin as his “journey in life between me and God.”
The Yoruba activist said this in an leaked audio obtained by SaharaReporters, the Yoruba activist said he wasn’t afraid of being extradited to Nigeria.
Sunday igboho was arrested on July 20th along with his wife, Ropo by Benin Republic’s security during his attempt to catch a flight to Germany after an attack on his house by the Department of State Security (DSS)
A week later, a Benin court blocked the immediate extradition of the self-determination activist to Nigeria while ruling that Igboho be remanded in prison pending further judgement.
While speaking in the leaked audio, Igboho said,
“My journey in life is between me and my God, I have accepted my fate where I’m currently. I’m not afraid of anything again, except my God. Even if taken before the Judge, I’ll tell him I’m not afraid of him except God. He can do anything to me.
“Even if it’s Nigeria they want to take me to, I’m not afraid. At least Nnamdi Kanu is there, we are both fighting for the same cause. If they want to take me back to Nigeria, then no problem. I have been winning my cases in Nigeria, even (Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar) Malami was forced to appeal some of them. It got to a stage he claimed he wasn’t aware of DSS (Department of State Services) attack on my house. He claimed he didn’t send them.
“It wasn’t the power of the Beninese government that made me to be here, it was because God wanted it like that. And I’m sure God will soon release me from prison even if all lawyers say they are not ready to defend me again. I’m not afraid of anything or anybody again. If it’s Nigeria, let them take me there. My father was very powerful when he was alive, but he died. He and my mum were very poor. But look at me today, I’m rich.”
