Sunday Igboho Arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic

Yourba self-acclaimed warlord and freedom fighter, popularly called Sunday Igboho, has been reportedly arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic, a neighbouring country to Nigeria, on Monday 19th by security operatives of the West African country.

Igboho, who was said to have escaped men of the Department of State Services (DSS) in the early hours of Thursday July 1, 2021, during his Ibadan home invasion, was confirmed by some Nigerian news media, to have been arrested in Benin Republic while fleeing to Germany.

Although, Peter Afunanya, Ph.D, DSS Public Relations Officer, as confirmed by news media, has not responded to messages seeking confirmation of Igboho’s arrest in Benin Republic, the DSS spokesperson had earlier said, precisely on July 1st, that Igboho should either turn himself in or be caught.

In Afunanya words, “Igboho may run as far as he can. He may hide as long as he wants…  But this will be the end of his shenanigans. Soon, he will not have a hiding place. His strength will sure fail him. And the law will catch up with him. The law may be slow. But it will be steady.

Afunanya added, consequently, Adeyemo/Igboho is advised to turn himself in to the nearest security agency… He should surrender himself to the appropriate authorities…”
