Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that people are “working behind the scenes” concerning the arrest and trial of Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
The governor made this known while addressing the Press at the Polling Unit 019 Ward 08, Ikoyi II, where he cast his vote during the Local Government/Council election on Saturday.
The governor when asked about the presumed silence of South West governors on the arrest of Igboho said “people” are working behind the scenes, adding that the case doesn’t have to be a public conversation.
These are very difficult times for all of us. I can assure you that people are working behind the scenes.
“At occasions like this, it’s not by how many Press people you call.”
“I’m aware that a lot of people have actions that they are taking quietly and privately but it doesn’t have to be a public conversation.”
Igboho was arrested on Monday, July 19, 2021, by the International Criminal Police Organisation at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Republic of Benin with his Germany-based wife, Ropo, while they tried to catch a flight to Germany.
