SaharaReporters reports that Ibrahim Salami, counsel for Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, says the Yoruba Nation agitator denied claims by the Nigerian government that he was involved in trafficking in arms or inciting violence.

Salami made this known in an interview on Tuesday, stating that Igboho told the judge that he was put on a watchlist by the Nigerian government for fighting against killer herdsmen.

The Yoruba agitator had appeared in court last Thursday and Monday after he was arrested alongside his wife, Ropo, on Monday, July 19, 2021, at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Republic of Benin on their way to Germany.

When questioned by the judge, the lawyer said, “Igboho explained that what was said about him are false.

“He explained that he did not do anything illegal in Nigeria. He clarified that Nigeria has never charged him to a court or jailed him for any offence, he was never arrested for any offence or invited to police station.

“Igboho said he never had any criminal record in Nigeria. He told the judge that the Nigerian government was after him because he was defending the Yoruba race against killer Fulani herdsmen. He said that he ran away from Nigeria because the government was after his life.

“He was asked when he got to Benin, how he got in and how long. Igboho replied that he left Nigeria on Sunday, got to Benin on Monday and attempted to leave Monday night for Germany before he was arrested.

“The judge asked him where he stayed, who drove him and how he escaped security checks. He replied.

“What is surprising is that the judge said he was not arrested because he committed an offence. He said he breached Benin (Republic) rules and he should be investigated.”

This Judge is just asking stupid questions, last year when flight was not coming to Nigeria because of the lockdown, I went through the border to Benin, bought flight ticket there and travelled to UK, I returned back to Benin Republic a Month time with the same flight. The same thing Mr Sunday did, why they didn't arrest me for illegal entry. All this drama are all political and busy body

... EXACTLY. HE SAID HE WASN'T ARRESTED BECAUSE OF ANY CRIME COMMITTED BUT IS BEING DETAINED BECAUSE HE ENTERED THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY. IS THAT NOT AN OFFENCE? EVEN, NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT THE BENINESE PASSPORT FOUND IN HIS POSSESSION. THIS INDICATES THAT HE IS BEING DETAINED ON THE ORDER OF DSS. THE COURT AND ITS JUDGES ARE CONFUSED AND NOT SAYING THE TRUTH.
