“The second is that he is fostering unrest in Nigeria, and the third is that he is attempting to split Nigeria into two or three parts.”

On Monday night, Igboho was apprehended at an airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

This came when the Nigerian government’s Department of State Services (DSS) declared the freedom fighter wanted after raiding his home in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The DSS paraded some of Igboho’s associates arrested during the raid after the invasion.

Guns and charms seized during the search were also displayed by the secret police.

Igboho escaped Nigeria about three weeks ago after his home was raided and he was declared wanted.
