Some youths have taken to the streets of Ibadan to protest the arrest of Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Igboho, a.k.a Sunday Igboho, on Monday night by security operatives in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
The protesters, who are carrying placards with different inscriptions in the Soka area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital city, were demanding the immediate release of Igboho from detention.
The protesters gathered in front of Igboho’s house in the Sooka area of Ibadan from where they took to the streets around 12 noon on Wednesday.
They were heard singing the Yoruba Nation anthem and chanting “Igboho Oosa”, “Free Igboho now now”.
The protesters also displayed placards such as: “I stand with Chief Sunday Igboho”; “Sunday Igboho is not a criminal”; “Yoruba wake up” and “Sunday Igboho is fighting for our freedom”
The protesters also blocked some sections of the road, which led to traffic snarl around Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
