Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has denied claims by the Nigerian government that he was involved in trafficking in arms or inciting violence.
His lead counsel, Ibrahim Salami, made this known in an interview, stating that Igboho told the judge that he was put on a watchlist by the Nigerian government for fighting against killer herdsmen.
Salami had in an interview with newsmen explained that Igboho is being tried for fresh charges bordering on illegal migration, dubious connivance with immigration officers and an attempt to cause civil unrest.
Igboho appeared in court last Thursday and Monday after he was arrested alongside his wife, Ropo, after both Igboho and his wife were arrested on Monday, July 19, 2021, by the International Criminal Police Organisation at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Republic of Benin on their way to Germany.
When questioned by the judge, the lawyer said Igboho explained that what was said about him are false.
Igboho said he never had any criminal record in Nigeria, while informing the judge that the Nigerian government was after him because he was defending the Yoruba race against killer Fulani herdsmen.
He said that he therefore ran away from away from Nigeria because the government was after his life.
