Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho,a popular advocate of Yoruba nation is set to return to the country .
Igboho left the nation in 2021 after DSS agents broke into his Ibadan home.
Several people were killed and several more suffered serious injuries in the raid, which resulted in the arrest of roughly 13 more people.
The DSS claimed at the time that it had conducted the raid as a result of intelligence information indicating that Igboho had reportedly stored weapons in his home.
It then began looking for Igboho, who was later detained in neighbouring Cotonou, Benin Republic, as he attempted to enter Germany.
Howver addressing newsmen in Abuja on Friday, Igboho’s lawyer, Mr. Pelumi Olajengbesi, said the embattled Yoruba nation activist, who had since regained his freedom, would soon return to the country.
“Igboho is doing very well and he will soon be in Nigeria in a very ceremonial way. The arrangements are on,” Olajengbesi told newsmen.
He, however, lamented his inability to enforce a judgement that was delivered in favour of his client, a situation he said was made difficult by the fact that the consent of the Attorney-General of the Federation must first be secured before security agencies could pay judgement debts.
While calling for a review of that provision of the law, Olajengbesi, urged the Federal Government under President Bola Tinubu to have a rethink about people he described as “freedom fighters.”
The lawyer maintained that people like Igboho, the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, as well as the embattled convener of the RevolutionNow protest, Mr. Omoyele Sowore, deserved to be listened to by the government.
