Popular Nollywood actor, Tony Ogbetere, on Monday said Yoruba people “dodged a huge bullet” with Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho’s) exit from the scene in July 2021.
Newsbreak reports that Igboho was in detention in Benin Republic after he was arrested at an airport in Cotonou by the country’s security forces while he was trying to flee to Germany in July 2021.
He fled Nigeria for Benin Republic after the Nigerian government declared him wanted.
A Beninise court blocked the extradition of Igboho to Nigeria while ruling that the activist be remanded in prison pending further hearing.
In March 2022, Igboho was released from prison to his medical practitioners. He has remained in Benin Republic since then.
“Many Yorubas don’t realize that they dodged a huge bullet with Igbogho’s exit from the scene,” Ogbetere wrote on his known Facebook page.
