The gangan will sound, followed by the sakara and the praise singer would lift his voice in praise of the government of Benin Republic tonight.
The reason is Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Ighoho has been released by Benin Republic Government after over seven months in a Benin Republic prison.
He was arrested on July 19, 2021 and ever since been held detention ‘without trial’.
The legal battle for his release witnessed a series of dramatic twists and turns.
A terse statement on Monday by the Umbrella body of Yoruba Self-determination Groups, Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, confirmed Igboho’s release.
The Communications Secretary to Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Maxwell Adeleye, explained Igboho was released to Professor Banji Akintoye and a French Language Expert/ Deputy Alana of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Professor Wale Adeniran.
Akintoye described the release of Ighoho as a “Triumph of truth over darkness in Yoruba land.”
