According to reports, former President Obasanjo met with the president of Benin on Sunday to discuss Igboho’s case
“Sunday Igboho” debacle sent former president Olusegun Obanjo scurrying to Benin Republic, writes The Cable. As of August 1, he had been traveling to Tanzania’s Zanzibar island before rerouting to France. Former President Obasanjo is believed to have met with Benin’s President Patrice Talon in the wake of the death of his wife. Roseline, who was 87 years old, was the victim of a car accident.
As Benin’s president from 1991 until 1996, Soglo acted as an intermediary between Obasanjo and General Sani Abacha in 1995. There are problems with the Igboho language in Nigeria and Benin Republic. Meanwhile, Nigerian authorities accuse him of plotting a war against the country.
The Department of State Services (DSS) uncovered assault firearms and ammunition during a raid on his Soka property in Ibadan, Oyo State, on July 1. Sadly, two of his allies were assassinated, and others are currently in court. He has boasted on multiple times that he has the ability to acquire weapons and face off against the security authorities. In Cotonou, Igboho and his wife Ropo were arrested ten days after they were declared sought in Nigeria.
