Lawyer representing Sunday Igboho says, his arrest is an act of surrender


Representative of Sunday Igboho, Barrister Pelumi Olajengbesi claimed security operatives were able to arrest Igboho because Igboho chose to surrender himself.

He further stated, unless as act of surrender, Igboho isn't one to allow himself to be arrested in such manner. Olajengbesi statement was disclosed while addressing the news men on Tuesday.

In his words, "truly he was arrested and I have confirmed that. We are making efforts to ensure he's fine. You know the Department of State Services declared him wanted.

"As a matter of fact, let me tell you now. That Sunday Igboho was arrested simply because he wanted to make himself available to the government. If not, Sunday Igboho is not someone who can be arrested that way. But because he believes that the journey to justice for the Yoruba people and for the Nigerian state to be able to live in peace may be needed for him to be available, that was why".
