Embattled freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho has resolved to return to Nigeria.
Recall that the Yoruba nation activist has been in Benin Republic for months following his arrest.
This is coming after the Department of State Services, DSS, had on July 1, 2021, attacked the home of Sunday Igboho in Soka, Ibadan, killing two of his associates and arresting 12 others.
Igboho who had gone into hiding after the attack was on July 20, arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic while trying to board a flight to Germany alongside his wife, Ropo.
While his wife was later released, a judge in Benin ordered the continued detention of the Yoruba activist as investigations go on.
In a leaked video obtained by Sahara Reporters, Igboho, speaking in Yoruba language, said he has accepted his detention as his “journey in life between me and God.”
While stating that he is not afraid of anyone or anything, the activist said he is ready to return back to Nigeria.
“My journey in life is between me and my God, I have accepted my fate where I’m currently. I’m not afraid of anything again, except my God,” Sunday Igboho said.
“Even if taken before the Judge, I’ll tell him I’m not afraid of him except God. He can do anything to me.
“Even if it’s Nigeria they want to take me to, I’m not afraid. At least Nnamdi Kanu is there, we are both fighting for the same cause. If they want to take me back to Nigeria, then no problem.
“I have been winning my cases in Nigeria, even (Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar) Malami was forced to appeal some of them. It got to a stage he claimed he wasn’t aware of DSS (Department of State Services) attack on my house. He claimed he didn’t send them.
“It wasn’t the power of the Beninese government that made me to be here, it was because God wanted it like that. And I’m sure God will soon release me from prison even if all lawyers say they are not ready to defend me again.
“I’m not afraid of anything or anybody again. If it’s Nigeria, let them take me there. My father was very powerful when he was alive, but he died. He and my mum were very poor. But look at me today, I’m rich.”
