The Federal Government has said that popular Yoruba Nation Agitator, Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Sunday Igboho is trying hard to obtain a new passport with which he wants to use to flee the country.
It went on to say that the government had put Igboho on a no-fly list in order to make his apprehension easier, and that security forces had been ordered to arrest him wherever he was discovered.
A person whose name is on the stop-list is denied all constitutional rights and privileges that a citizen is entitled to in the security circle.
A letter from the Nigeria Immigration Service dated July 9, 2021, sent to the Director General, Department of State Services, the Inspector General of Police, and the DG, National Intelligence Agency, included the Federal Government’s directive against Igboho.
The activist, a leader of the Yoruba Nation’s separatist movement, was declared wanted by the Department of State Services on suspicion of hoarding weaponry to destabilize the country, which he has denied, but his whereabouts are unclear.
Since a midnight raid by the secret police on July 1 ahead of a big protest in support of the call for Yoruba Nation in Lagos, the whereabouts of Igboho, a leading figure in the separatist campaign for the Yoruba Nation, have been unknown.
