Protesters shutdown Ibadan, demand immediate release of Sunday Igboho
Sunday Igboho’s supporters have stormed the streets of Ibadan, Oyo State to demand the release of the agitator who was reportedly arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
Recall that the Yoruba activist was nabbed on Monday in Cotonou while allegedly making moves to escape to Germany with his wife.
Photos from the protest on Wednesday, showed a crowd building up close to Igboho’s Soka residence. They carried placards and chanted freedom songs.
Some of the inscriptions on the placards read; ”Free Igboho Now Now’‘ ”Free Oloye Sunday Igboho Now”
Sunday Igboho’s media aide, Olayomi Koiki had earlier disclosed that there would be a protest on Wednesday afternoon at the freedom fighter’s residence in Ibadan.
He said, “Please we beg all agitators to converge at Chief Sunday Igboho’s house for a peaceful demonstration to show the world the kind of person he is as one of the conditions given for his release.
“Please let’s all be at his house in Soka, Ibadan, before 12 o’clock today, thanks and God bless Yoruba nation now.”
