There was an earlier report that Professor Akintoye traveled out of Nigeria to Benin Republic to escape the plot of a possible arrest. 

The news of Professor Akintoye's travel to the Benin Republic broke out few days ago because of his role in the agitation for secession in Southwest and support for Sunday Igboho.
