Nigerian Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), reveals that FG will bring back, Sunday Igboho, the Sovereign Yoruba Nations agitator.



The AGF spoke on Monday on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ program concerning the embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho.

Declared wanted by the Department of State Services for allegedly stockpiling arms to destabilize Nigeria, an allegation he denied, Igboho escaped to the neighboring francophone country in July 2021.

However, luck ran out on him and he was arrested by Interpol at a Benin airport when he tried to board a Germany-bound flight.


He had since been remanded in a prison in the Benin Republic for over six months where he is said to be facing trial for immigration-related offenses, amongst others.

Commenting on Igboho’s ordeal on Monday, Malami said the case is a matter being prosecuted at the foreign country on account of breaching laws in the Benin Republic.

The AGF declared this saying…

“We’ll allow the law of a nation that was indeed breached takes its natural cause and then perhaps indeed thereafter bring him (Igboho) back home after the conclusion of the trial to face the Nigerian law that was accordingly breached.

“The position of things is that we are not interfering in aborting the existing prosecution in the foreign land.”
