The embattled Youruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has accused the Nigerian Government of attempting to eliminate him in Benin Republic, Newspremises reports.
Igboho claimed that, the Nigerian government is trying to eliminate him in other to silence the Yoruba Nation agitation.
Igboho’s spokesperson, Olayomi Koiki, who made the disclosure in a podcast on Tuesday said;
“The enemies are trying to eliminate Igboho. Their plan is to eliminate him so that the Yoruba Nation agenda will be silenced, but God has shown that he is above them.”
According to Koiki, Igboho can’t be released through the legal route because the Benin Republic judiciary is not working.
While lamenting that the diplomatic approach has failed, Koiki added that the Benin Republic President, Talon has refused to set Igboho free.
“If you think the legal route is what will set Igboho free, then we are wasting our time.
“Benin Republic judicial system is not working. Look at the way his case has been prolonged.
“I’ve spoken with our lawyer in Benin, and he told me that only the president can set him free.
“Now, diplomacy cannot work. We have to fight for our rights.
“We’ve issued so many ultimata for Igboho’s release, but nothing has happened,” he added.
