Contrary to reports doing the rounds that embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho has been released and flown to Germany, he is still being held by the Beninoise authorities.
Igboho was arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night.
Professor Wale Adeniran of Ilana Omo Odua, umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination groups refuted the trending reports that Igboho has been released.
He said Igboho’s lawyer has visited the location where the activist is being held but was not allowed to see him.
Adeniran carpeted those falsely reporting he has been released, adding that four international lawyers from Benin Republic, Nigeria, France, Britain are on the case.
