Olusegun Falola, one of the lawyers for the Yoruba nation freedom fighter, Sunday Igboho, revealed that the activist will seek asylum in the Benin Republic and France after his release from prison. Falola made it known that Igboho would not return to Nigeria until President Muhammadu Buhari's administration ended. Sunday Igboho has been spearheading the agitation for the Yoruba Nation for some time, a course which has made the Department of Security services raid his home and led to his arrest in Benin Republic, where he was remanded in prison.
Can we agree that the Yoruba Nation agitation has ended considering the statement revealed that Sunday Igboho will seek asylum in Benin and France and will not be returned to Nigeria till after the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari?
Since the leader of the Yoruba Nation agitators will be willing to never step foot in Nigeria during this current administration and never tell if the next administration after President Buhari's tenure will also take up the case against the activist, this is an indirect way of quenching the agitation without any form of fight. After his arrest, the rallies stopped, indicating the activist is the soul and body of the agitation and his prolonged absence will make people forget about any form of agitation.
