The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has said the Federal Government is planning to bring troubled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, back to Nigeria after his prosecution in Benin Republic.
Igboho was declared wanted by the Department of State Services (DSS) over alleged storing up of arms aimed at destabilizing Nigeria.
He denied the allegation and ran off to neighboring Benin Republic in July of last year.
Igboho was however, arrested by the Interpol at a Benin airport when he allegedly tried to board a flight heading to Germany.

The Francophone country is currently prosecuting him for immigration-related offences, including forging of the nation’s international passport to facilitate his escape to the European country.
While commenting on Igboho’s situation on a Channels Television show ‘Politics Today’ on Monday, Malami said Nigeria will wait for Benin Republic to conclude its case against Igboho.
He said, “We’ll allow the law of a nation that was indeed breached takes its natural cause and then perhaps indeed thereafter bring him (Igboho) back home after the conclusion of the trial for the purpose of facing the Nigerian law that was accordingly breached.
