He said the reports about him leaving Nigeria because Nigerian Government are plotting to apprehend him is fake. Putting the records straight, the Emeritus Professor of History said he is in the Francophone country to coordinate and supervise how to legally rescue the detained Yoruba Nation Activist from Benin government remand, as soon as possible.

Professor Akintoye further added that he didn't commit any offence against the Nigerian Government, so he has no reason to be afraid of being apprehended and he will never be intimated by the government.

He promises to return back to Nigeria once Sunday Igboho is released from custody and returned back to the country, safely.
