An Oyo state born, Yoruba Nation activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has returned to Nigeria.

This development was announced in a statement made available by his spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, who confirmed that the Yoruba Nation activist was in the country for his mother’s burial in a video tweet via his X former twitter page on Thursday.

In the video, Igboho could be seen with some people believed to be at the mortuary.

He wrote: “I can confirm that Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho is currently on his way to Igboho Town for the final burial of his mother MRS S.A.ADEYEMO.

“The body of MRS S.A ADEYEMO was picked up from the mortuary in SAKI TOWN some few hours ago.”



Recall that Igboho has been out of Nigeria since 2021 when he eloped to Benin Republic after he was declared wanted by the Department of State Services, DSS.

DSS had invaded his home in the Soka area of Oyo State over alleged terrorism charges.

The secret police had declared him wanted over his agitation for the Yoruba Nation and attacks on Fulani herders accused of having attacked farmers in the Southwest.


In the Benin Republic, Igboho was arrested and remanded while attempting to travel to Germany.

However, he recently regained his freedom after two years in a Beniese prison.

While detained in Benin Republic, Igboho lost his mother who lived in Saki, Oyo State.
