Sunday Igboho Returns to Nigeria for Mother’s Funeral

Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo, known as Sunday Igboho, has returned to Nigeria to bury his mother, who passed away recently.

Igboho’s spokesman Olayomi Koiki announced his return to Nigeria in a video posted on X.

Koiki’s caption read, “I can confirm that Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho is currently on his way to Igboho Town for the final burial of his mother MRS S.A. Adeyemo.

“The body of MRS S.A Adeyemo was picked up from the mortuary in Saki Town some few hours ago.”

PurpleWorld previously reported that Igboho was arrested by the security forces in Benin Republic in 2021, following the Department of State Services’ declaration that he was wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms.

Igboho was arrested at the Cardinal Bernardin International Airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic while attempting to board a flight to Germany.

Despite his previous arrest, Igboho has stated that he is now legally free to leave Cotonou and travel to Nigeria and other countries. His release came after two years of legal proceedings in Benin. This is welcome news for Igboho and his supporters, who have been advocating for his freedom since his arrest.
