Igboho’s Supporters Protest In Ibadan, Demand Activists “Unconditional Release”


Supporters of Yoruba Nation activist Sunday ‘Igboho’ Adeyemo staged a protest on Saturday in Ibadan calling for his unconditional release.

Mr Igboho is currently in detention in the Benin Republic over illegal migration among other offences.

The protesters, who were mostly youths, carried placards with various inscriptions demanding the immediate release of the activist currently in the custody of the government of the Republic of Benin.

They started the protest from the residence of Mr Igboho, situated at Soka area of Ibadan and marched toward the Toll Gate on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The protesting youths were singing solidarity songs, calling on the federal government to facilitate the release of Mr Igboho from the custody of the Republic of Benin.

One of the protesters, who identified himself as Kareem Adesope, urged Yoruba leaders and other Nigerians to prevail on the federal government to champion the release of the activist.

Mr Adesope said the recent news reports that the activist was sick should be a source of concern to all patriotic Nigerians, adding that the activist should not be allowed to die in detention.

He claimed that Mr Igboho was innocent of the charges against him and should not be treated like a common criminal.
 
According to him, Mr Igboho’s fundamental human rights have been grossly abused.

The protest was, however, peaceful, and the potesters later returned to Mr Igboho’s residence where they dispersed.
