Kamorudeen Okiki, president of Agbekoya Worldwide, has asked the government of Benin Republic to release Sunday Adeyemo better known as Sunday Igboho or the group will use a traditional means to free him from detention.

Igboho has been in detention in Benin Republic since he was arrested at an airport in Cotonou by the country’s security forces while he was trying to flee to Germany in July 2020.

He fled Nigeria for Benin Republic after the Nigerian government declared him wanted.

A Beninise court blocked the extradition of Igboho to Nigeria while ruling that the activist be remanded in prison pending further hearing.

Speaking during a rally in Osogbo, on Thursday, Okiki said Igboho is not a criminal and should not be held “illegally”.

“Sunday Igboho is not a criminal. We will continue to say that. We know that it is the federal government that is holding Igboho in Benin Republic, but we are telling Benin Republic authorities now to legally release him using their court,” he said.

“They should release him legally and quickly because they are not taking him to court again, or we will use our traditional means and powers to take Igboho out of detention.

“We are Agbekoya, if they don’t release Sunday Igboho legally, we are going to take him out of Benin Republic. They will just see that Sunday Igboho is out of their prison.

“I repeat, we Agbekoya, will get him out of Benin Republic detention and bring him back home.”
