Embattled Nigerian Separatist Leader and Activist Sunday Igboho Breaks Silence from Beninese Prison

In a leaked audio published by BBC Yoruba, Nigeria’s Yoruba Nation campaigner Sunday Igboho has spent more than a month in the civil prison of Cotonou.
He hopes he will regain his freedom shortly.

Arrested by members of the Criminal Brigade on July 19 in Cotonou, Sunday Igboho has since been imprisoned in the civilian prison of Cotonou, Republic of Benin. In the last judgment, the Cotonou Court of Appeal ordered his continued detention.

Quiet since his arrest, Igboho in a BBC Yoruba interview appeared calm without a visible fear of extradition to Nigeria.

“Even though they want to take me to Nigeria, I’m not afraid. At least Nnamdi Kanu is here, we are both fighting for the same cause. If they want to take me back to Nigeria, no problem. It is not the power of the Beninese government that made me be here, it is because God wanted it that way. And I am sure that God will release me from prison soon even if all the lawyers say they are not ready to defend me again.”

“I am still that strong man to be reckoned with”
“I am no longer afraid of anything or anyone. If it’s Nigeria, let them take me there, ” Sunday Igboho added.

“It’s because of the way things are, I’m a man, I’m a million man, I swear to God. Even when there is no man anywhere, I am still that strong man to reckon with, ” he reassured.
