The Senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Pastor Adewale Giwa, has asked the President of Benin Republic, Patrice Talon, to within 48 hours, release the Yoruba fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as “Igboho”.
DAILY POST had reported that Igboho is currently in a detention facility in Benin Republic.
The Soka, Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria, home of the pro-Yoruba self-determination activist, was invaded by men from the Department of State Services, DSS, on July 1, 2021, leading to the arrest of twelve of his aides, while Igboho managed to escape arrest.
Igboho was later arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic, on July 16, 2021, with his wife while travelling to Germany and has since then been in detention.
One of his lawyers, Yomi Aliyyu, had last week raised an alarm that Igboho needed urgent medical attention.
According to him, Igboho was diagnosed with possible kidney and lung illness.
Speaking with his church members on the State of Nation on Sunday, Giwa warned president Talon not to allow himself to be used by selfish Nigerian politicians to dent the image of his country.
“Let me warn the President of Benin Republic to, within 48 hours, release Sunday Igboho. He should not allow himself to be used as biblical Judas Iscariot.
“Be warned and quickly set the young man free without delay. Sunday Igboho should not be treated like a criminal”, Giwa stated.
Besides, the fiery pastor also condemned the National Assembly for plunging Nigeria into further debts.
He said,” This is the worst National Assembly so far since 1999. Anything president Muhammadu Buhari brings to them, they approve without even considering how the Nigerian people feel.
“They say ” Yes sir” to everything president Buhari says without questioning and asking for the opinions of Nigerians.
“This is nothing but a rubber stamp assembly that only represents itself and pockets.”
