According to the report, reaching us from Daily Nigerian, the paramount Ruler of Ile-Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan, has set up a 28-man committee to look into the arrest of Sunday Igboho in Cotonou, Benin Republic. Recall that Sunday Igboho was arrested while trying to flee to Germany with a Beninese passport, during which he was fingered by a passenger as a wanted person. However, the Ooni of Ife has set up a committee consisting of prominent sons and daughters of Yoruba across the political spectrum to investigate Igboho's arrest. The committee as gathered from Daily Nigerian includes Segun Awolowo, Doyin Okupe, Chief Gbenga Daniel, Oba Olusola Alao, the Olugbon of Igbon, Senator Biodun Olujimi, and Muyiwa Ige, among others.

However, the establishment of the committee has proven the dignity and good heart of the Ooni of Ife. Recall that Sunday Igboho had once shaded the King but was quick to ask for forgiveness. The 28-man committee set up by the Ooni is an indication that the King has the interest of the Yoruba people at heart, and he has truly forgiven Sunday Igboho. Therefore, the committee, in my opinion, should stand up for Sunday Igboho and possibly go against any effort to extradite Igboho to Nigeria. They should also tell the Beninoise Government that Sunday Igboho is a law-abiding citizen of Nigeria and holding him captive might pose some security threats.

All in all, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ojaja II should be commended for setting up such a committee despite his rift with Sunday Igboho in the past.
