A top security source has revealed how a travel agent was used to lure Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho and his wife, Ropo into the net of the International Criminal Police Organisation at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
The security source that spoke with Punch, noted that the agitator had had initially escaped arrest but a travel agent was used to lure them back to the airport around 8pm.
It was gathered that Igboho and his wife wanted to catch a flight to Germany when they were arrested.
The source said, “He (Igboho) was arrested in Cotonou on Monday night while he tried to travel. He was already at the airport with a passport. The immigration officers suspected the passport and so they stopped him. In the process, they discovered he was the one. He was able to escape in the course of discussion and we were grateful to God for that.
“But the travel agent called back saying the matter had been resolved. But on going back, he was arrested. He was trying to travel to Germany when he was apprehended.”
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s Ambassador to the Benin Republic, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai (retd.), has been fingered as the brain behind the arrest of the Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.
