Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has confirmed that some of his cats were killed during a midnight raid conducted by the Department of State Services (DSS) on his residence in July 2021....Click Here To Continue Reading>>

Speaking in an interview with The Punch, Igboho, who keeps cats as pets, stated that the DSS officers indiscriminately fired bullets during the raid, leading to the death of several cats. He denied the rumours that he transformed into a cat to escape capture.

While acknowledging earlier reports alleging that the DSS and soldiers brought three herbalists, killed five cats, and took one away, believing Igboho had transformed, he clarified that the cats were simply caught in the crossfire of the raid.

“It’s true that some cats were killed during the attack,” Igboho explained. “The DSS just kept firing bullets everywhere. I had many cats as pets, and any movement attracted their gunfire.”

He added, “Their mission was clear: either kill me or arrest me and take me to some unknown location. But God is greater than anyone, including the former president. My God and providence put them to shame with that illegal raid. They failed to achieve what they came for. I didn’t turn into a cat to escape.”

This revelation comes just days after the ECOWAS Court of Justice in Abuja ordered the Benin Republic government to pay Igboho a sum of 20 million CFA as compensation for the raid and his illegal detention. Igboho recently regained his freedom in Benin and has since reunited with his family in Germany.

On Wednesday, the President of Benin Republic, Patrice Talon, visited Nigerian President Bola Tinubu at the State House in Abuja. The two leaders discussed ways to improve trade relations between their countries.

 

In a statement released by presidential spokesperson Ajuri Ngelale, Tinubu acknowledged the lack of cooperation between Nigeria and Benin Republic, which he said had been hindering mutual development. He emphasized the importance of economic synergy between the two nations for West African economic prosperity.

 

Tinubu referred to Nigeria and Benin Republic as “conjoined twins held together at the hip” and called for common economic principles and priorities. He welcomed the economic programme being developed through inter-ministerial collaboration and pledged support for private sector interests to facilitate prosperity in both countries.

 

President Talon sought President Tinubu’s support on improving trade relations between their countries ahead of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Summit. He emphasized the importance of free movement of people and goods between Nigeria and Benin Republic.

 

Talon also highlighted the need for a revised investment programme that factors in all aspects of the Nigerian economy. He proposed the establishment of an inter-ministerial technical committee to prepare a draft document for their legislatures. Talon expressed readiness to sign an executive order to appoint members of the council to advance mutually beneficial cooperation across sectors.

 

The two leaders also discussed the issue of smuggling and coordination efforts to ensure the protection of each other’s interests as their economies integrate.
