How Buratai scuttled Sunday Igboho’s escape via Benin Republic

How Buratai scuttled Sunday Igboho’s escape via Benin Republic (Updated: Wednesday, 21st July 2021, 11:39 PM)


Former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai (rtd) played a part in foiling the escape of Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho.

The Yoruba agitator and his wife, Ropo, were on their way to Germany through the Benin Republic when they were stopped Monday night.
Igboho was on July 1 declared wanted by the Department of State Services (DSS) after his Soka residence in Ibadan was breached.

After the raid that claimed the lives of two associates, the DSS exhibited guns, bullets, and other weapons recovered.

On July 9, Igboho, then in hiding, was placed on a stop-list following intelligence about his plans to flee Nigeria.

Our Source reported that security agencies had identified his location but wanted to catch him without another bloody operation.

By the time Igboho took possession of a doctored passport, the federal government got the information and increased surveillance.

Neighboring countries were alerted to BOLO (Be On the Look Out) and on July 19, the secessionists and Ropo were stopped at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou.

Working with the DSS and National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Buratai, who recently resumed as Nigeria’s ambassador in Benin, earlier wrote to the government of that country.

An officer told PRNigeria that Buratai insisted on the arrest and extradition of the self-acclaimed freedom fighter if he entered their territory.

The former Army chief’s letter to the Benin government was delivered through the Nigerian Embassy.

“On Monday, Igboho tendered his passport but immigration officers suspected the document and told him to wait. A search revealed his identity”, the source said.

On Tuesday, Our Source disseminated Nigeria’s moves to repatriate the separatist amid claims he was released and already left the shores of West Africa to Europe.
