Activist Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho has reportedly been arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic after being declared wanted by the Department of State Services.
The Yoruba Nation agitator was said to have been apprehended by local police last night at an airport in Cotonou.
He was reportedly heading for Germany.
The activist is wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms after security forces raided his Ibadan residence in the Soka area on July 1, 2021.
Twelve of his aides were arrested while two were killed in a gun duel.
Sunday Igboho had denied the allegations levied against him.
The Federal Government recently raised the alarm that the activist was trying to obtain a fake passport to leave the country.
DSS Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunnaya, had advised Igboho to turn himself in to the nearest security.
“Those cheering and eulogizing him may appeal to or advice him to do the needful,” Afunnaya said. “He should surrender himself to the appropriate authorities. He or anyone can never be above the law.”
