Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho said he is ready to return to Nigeria and that he has accepted his destiny.
Igboho, in a leaked audio, said the he is no longer scared of returning to Nigeria and that if the Benin Republic government wanted to return him to Nigeria, they should go ahead.
He said “It is because of the situation I found myself in. If I am determined to get something done, nobody will resist me. When I insisted that the detention facility that I was kept here should be changed, they were forced to change it. I have accepted destiny.
“I am no longer scared of anyone. I am ready to face the judge that I am no longer scared of him. He should do whatever he likes.”
Igboho, in the leaked audio obtained by The Punch, said “If they want to return me to Nigeria, they should go ahead. There is God there.
“Nnamdi Kanu is also in Nigerian custody and we are fighting a similar cause. I don’t care if I am returned to Nigeria too. I am ready.”
He lamented that he had been in Benin for almost two months and that the lawyers did not show enough concern.
Igboho said he had senior lawyers in Nigeria who respected him and that he had 42 lawyers defending him in Ibadan and that they kept getting the victory.
Igboho was arrested in Benin Republic two months ago while he was fleeing to Germany to avoid arrest by the Nigerian government.
There have been mounting pressure that he should not be extradited to Nigeria as he would face stiffer punishment.
But it now appears that the situations in Benin were worse than in Nigeria.
