The detainees were admitted to bail by Justice Obiora Egwuatu in a ruling just delivered on their bail applications, filed and argued on their behalf by lawyer Pelumi Olajengbesi. The judge rejected the fears and apprehension expressed by DSS lawyer, Mr Idowu Awo, that some of the detainees will flee the country as their leader, Sunday Igboho, have done if granted bail.

Also at the meeting was senior chief Lekan Alabi, the Ekefa Olubadan. “Olubadan said it has become necessary in order to allay the fears of several people, including protesters who besiege Olubadan palace every now and then that Kabiesi is not folding his arms over the travails of Igboho. “Igboho lives in Ibadan, got married in Ibadan, rear children in Ibadan, built houses in Ibadan and as such he has the rights to be protected by Ibadan traditional institution within the ambit of the law just like any human being in Ibadan.” Olubadan stated that he is in constant touch with Yoruba prominent royal fathers, including Igboho royal crowns to allay public fears of a repeat performance of Yoruba-Fulani coalition of 1814. The statement added, “Students of Nigeria history may wish to be reminded that when some people, during the period under reference, chose to engage in territorial expansion to the sea, it took the Ibadan army under Balogun Oderinlo to repel the attack and stop the incursion near Osogbo.”
  4. Supporters of Yoruba Nation have vowed not to relent in their campaign for self-determination, declaring they will present their case at the 76th UN General Assembly in September.

  5. Supporters of the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho have stormed his residence in Ibadan the Oyo State capital to demand the release of the agitator who is currently at the custody of security officials in Cotonou, Benin Republic, 9jaonline reports.

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.”
  6. More facts emerged on Wednesday about how Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Igboho, initially escaped from security operatives at the airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic, but was lured back to the place through phone calls by one of his travel agents. Already, Igboho’s lawyers, led by Yomi Aliu, SAN, had moved to Benin Republic where they had joined up with Beninese lawyers in readiness for a legal battle to prevent the activist’s extradition to Nigeria. “You know that he has been under watch and he is someone who talks to too many people. These telephone calls were used to trail him and he was intercepted in Cotonou. “He initially escaped from the airport when the security operatives wanted to arrest him. But the travel agent called him back saying the matter had been resolved. But on getting back, he was arrested with his wife. “A lot of people made efforts to resolve the matter but we discovered that the Nigerian Ambassador to Benin Republic (Tukur Buratai) was already aware and he said that he (Igboho) must be extradited,” a source said. Another source noted that Igboho and his wife were detained at the “Benin Republic Criminal Police cell”, adding that “Buratai would have gone to the police station because he was the one that told them to arrest him.” The source noted that the German Embassy was intervening in the matter because Igboho’s wife is a German citizen. He added, however, the Nigerian Government could mount pressure on Benin Republic and extradite Igboho today (Wednesday). “I was told they (Nigerian government officials) are coming today. My prayer is that he should remain in Cotonou or be allowed to go to Germany because I don’t know what would happen to him in Abuja,” the source said.
  7. The Lagos State Police Command on Thursday said it is currently on red alert to ensure that the planned rally in the state by the popular Yoruba appraisal group is thwarted. Intelligence revealed that the yoruba were mobilizing for a mega rally in the state on Friday despite the arrest of some yoruba agitators at the July 3 rally which took place at the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park, Ojota. The police command, in a statement issued and made available to reporters on Thursday evening, urged parents and guardians to warn their children and ward against protesting against the federal government. “The Command strongly warns against any rally or mass gathering in any part of Lagos State, as such will be tantamount to jeopardising the security system of the country at this moment and expose the participants of the proposed rally and innocent people of Lagos State to avoidable deaths, and other social/economic vices. “The Police and other security agencies in the state have been on red alert to prevent any unlawful rally and lawlessness in any part of the state, while parents and guardians are urged to warn their children and wards not to involve themselves in any protest which will alter the unity of the country. “The ugly incident recorded at the Oodua Republic Rally of 3rd July, 2021, at the same area of Ojota, Lagos State, is still fresh in our memories, let alone the massive destruction of lives and properties experienced during the October 2020 End SARS violent protest in Lagos State.”
  8. The camp of Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, has denied that he was about to soft pedal or dialogue with the federal authorities.

Koiki stated that there had been no contact between the monarch and the agitator lately. Koiki also denied that Igboho was about to drop the agitation for a Yoruba nation. Reacting to the development, Oluwo said only Igboho “can speak for himself” on whether he is ready for talks of not. “Nobody can speak for him,” he told The Nation.
  9. Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka has tackled President Muhammadu Buhari after men of the Department of State Services invaded his house, killing his supporters. Soyinka said the Federal Government should apologise to Sunday Igboho over the illegal raid, according to a report by Channels Television. The DSS invaded Igboho’s house in Ibadan, Oyo State, early on Thursday based on intelligence it said it had received that he was stockpiling arms to cause chaos within the region. Igboho, who has been declared wanted by the DSS, had recently been calling for a ‘Yoruba Nation’ over what he has described as a ‘Fulani invasion’ of the South-West. In an interview with BBC Pidgin published on Monday, Soyinka said the government’s actions and rationale for invading Igboho’s home “stinks.” According to Soyinka, Igboho’s fight for freedom was preceded by criminal acts of enemies of Nigeria who “appear to be supported by the force of the State.” While Soyinka noted he doesn’t ‘like the sound of a Yoruba Nation’ anymore than he likes the sound of a Tiv or Igbo nation, he said the country must be restructured through the decentralisation of power. According to the erudite professor, Nigeria’s current structure was imposed upon the people by the military.

The statement read; "In the early hours (about 0134 hours) of today, 1st July, 2021, a joint team of security operatives raided the residence of Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo a.k.a. SUNDAY IGBOHO at Soka, Ibadan, Oyo State. This was based on intelligence that he had stockpiled arms in the place.

Abideen SHITTU vi. Jamiu NOAH vii. Ayobami DONALD viii. Adelabe USMAN ix. Oluwafelumi KUNLE x. Raji KAZEEM xi. Taiwo OPEYEMI and xii. Bamidele SUNDAY. "This is Inform Nigerians and the world that Sunday IGBOHO and his group, in the guise of campaign for self-determination, have become well-armed and determined to undermine public order. This, the arrests and seizures are, no doubt, a confirmation of a grand plan by IGBOHO and his cohorts to wage a violent insurrection against the Nigerian State." "Alert foreign missions and licencing authorities within and outside Nigeria about this development and the possibility that IGBOHO could declare some of his personal permit and identity cards missing in order to seek their replacement." "Apprise stakeholders that the Five (5) AK-47 assault rifles recovered from the building are suspected to be those collected by IGBOHO’s men from Nigerian Customs and Immigration personnel at Idi Iroko, Ogun State." "The gun duel which lasted for an hour offered IGBOHO the chance to escape. Sunday ADEYEMO a.k.a Sunday IGBOHO is now on the run. IGBOHO may run as far as he can. He may hide as long as he wants. He might have attacked security operatives as his strength carried him. 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." "Consequently, ADEYEMO/IGBOHO is advised to turn himself in to the nearest security agency. Those cheering and eulogising him may appeal to or advise him to do the needful. He should surrender himself to the appropriate authorities. He or anyone can never be above the law. Meanwhile, those arrested will be charged accordingly."
