Yoruba monarchs, whose territories are in the Republic of Benin are currently meeting to discuss the arrest and prosecution of the embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

 

The monarch and their chiefs are reportedly seeking ways to help Igboho, who is being detained in the francophone country following his arrest at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou by the International Criminal Police Organisation.

 

Two of the monarchs, Alajashe of Ajashe from Port Novo, alongside his counterpart from Seme are said to be at the meeting taking place at the palace of Alajohoun of Adjohoun.
