Supporters of embattled Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho have taken to the streets of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, to protest his arrest and detention by Beninise authorities.
Igboho, who was arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night, is still being held by Beninise authorities.
The protesters gathered in front of Igboho’s house in the Sooka area of Ibadan from where they took to the streets around 12 noon on Wednesday.
They were heard singing the Yourba Nation anthem and chanting “Igboho Oosa”, “Free Igboho now now”.
The protesters also displayed placards such as: “I stand with Chief Sunday Igboho”; “Sunday Igboho is not a criminal”; “Yoruba wake up” and “Sunday Igboho is fighting for our freedom”
The protesters also blocked some sections of the road, which led to traffic snarl around Lagos-Ibadan expressway. (The Nation)
