Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Igboho, stopped from obtaining new Int’l passport

EFFORTS by the Federal Government of Nigeria to arrest the Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularlly known as Sunday Igboho is being intensified as the agitator may be stopped from acquiring a new international passport or flee the country.

Recall that the government has placed the Yoruba Nation agitator on the stop-list in order to facilitate his arrest.

It was learnt that the Federal Government has directed security agencies to apprehend him anywhere he is found.

The Federal Government’s directive against Igboho was contained in a letter by the Nigeria Immigration Service dated July 9, 2021, addressed to the Director General, Department of State Services, the Inspector General of Police and the DG, National Intelligence Agency.

The NIS letter issued to facilitate Igboho’s arrest was signed on behalf of the Comptroller General of Immigration by Assistant Comptroller General of Immigration, Investigation and Compliance, A.B. Baba.

The letter titled ‘Stop-listing of person: Adeyemo Sunday Adeniyi (aka Sunday Igboho), male, Nigerian, passport number A11613637, date of birth 10/10/1972’ was copied to all zonal controllers and control posts nationwide.

It read, “I am directed to request that you kindly place the above-named person on stop-list. Credible intelligence revealed that Adeyemo is making efforts to obtain a police extract and/or court affidavit to enable him acquire a new Nigerian passport, apparently to facilitate his escape out of the country.
In addition, he should be arrested wherever and whenever sighted and referred to the Director-General, Department of State Services letter no: S.605/A/246 dated 05 July 2021.”

The NIS spokesman, Amos Okpu, however, said he was not aware of the letter. He added that he had no update on the manhunt for Igboho.

He said, “I’m not aware of the letter. Has Ighoho been declared wanted? Well, I don’t have any information on him.”

The DSS Spokesman, Peter Afunanya, was yet to respond to inquiries on the issue as at the time of filing this report.
