The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi (Ojaja II) has set up a 28-man committee to look into the arrest of Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Igboho at a Cotonou Airport.
The committee headed by Prof. Akin Osuntokun has other members which include Segun Awolowo, Doyin Okupe, Chief Gbenga Daniel, Oba Olusola Alao, the Olugbon of Igbon, Sen. Biodun Olujimi and Muyiwa Ige.
Confirming the report, the committee coordinator Prof Akin Osuntokun said the committee will look into the issues surrounding the arrest of Igboho and related matters.
“The Ooni of Ife inaugurated an advisory council comprising eminent Yoruba sons and daughters across the political spectrum. It is called the Ooni Caucus.
“The inauguration ceremony had been scheduled over a month ago and it is just an accident that it coincided with reports of Sunday Igboho’s arrest in Cotonou.
“Nonetheless, the council is actively interested in the new development and would appropriately respond in the nearest future,” Osuntokun said
Igboho is being held by Brigade Criminelle in Cotonou after he was arrested at Cardinal Bernardin International Airport with his wife on their way to Germany on Monday night.
