The mother of Sunday Adeyemo, the embattled Yoruba nation agitator, also known as Sunday Igboho has died.
Mrs Adeyemo died Saturday evening.
Igboho confirmed her demise in an Instagram post.
He said: “My heart is heavy. I do not want you to leave just yet. I’m left alone in this complicated world. Mama mi, who would I turn to? It’s hard for me to say goodbye.
“The cold hands of death took you. It wriggles out from its dark depths and snatched you away. Mama mi, this is too much for me to bear. Too much.”
Also, Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, confirmed the death in a tweet saying; “I can confirm today Saturday 22nd of July 2023 that Dr. Chief Sunday Adeyemo’s (aka Sunday Igboho) mother died.”
Igboho has been unable to leave Benin Republic since his arrest and arraignment in 2021.
