The Federal Government of Nigeria has said Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo well-known as Sunday Igboho is trying his possible best to acquire a new passport and flee the country.
Igboho who has been placed on the stop-list in order to facilitate his arrest is nowhere to be found ever since his Sooka residence has been raided by the DSS where 13 Igboho’s associates arrested and two person shot dead.
The activist who has been denied constitutional rights and privileges a citizen is entitled to while his name is on the stop-list according to security circle and all security agencies are directed to arrest him anywhere he is found in the country
The Federal Government’s directive against Igboho was contained in a letter by the Nigeria Immigration Service dated July 9, 2021, addressed to the Director General, Department of State Services, the Inspector General of Police and the DG, National Intelligence Agency.
Igboho was declared wanted by the Department of State Services on allegations of stockpiling arms to destabilise the country, which he has since denied
