Sunday Igboho and Yoruba leaders

It was all joy for the embattled Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, on Tuesday after bagging an honorary doctorate degree.

Naija News reports that Igboho, who could not contain his joy, took to his social media page to share photos of himself and other Yoruba leaders celebrating his latest achievement.

Igboho was honoured with the academic excellence certificate by the Triune Biblical University, a varsity based in Brooklyn, New York, the United States.

He shared the certificate and a series of photos taken from the event on his Instagram page late Tuesday. The certificate issued to Igboho had on it a Doctorate of peace and security management/International Relations with Specialization in War/Conflict and Peace Studies.

He captioned: “Congratulations to me as I was conferred Doctor of peace and security management/international relations with a specialization in war/conflict and peace studies from Triune Biblical University, USA.”

“It’s such an honour to know that the Yoruba nation’s efforts are not in vain,” Igboho added in his caption.

Present at the conferment of the academic excellence is the leader of the Yoruba self-determination movement, Banji Akintoye; vice chairman of the Yoruba self-determination movement, Banji Ayiloge; vice chairman of Ilana Omo Odua, Wale Adeniran, and the publicity director of YSDM, Titi Aboyade Cole, Naija News understands.

Recall that Sunday Igboho in July 2021, was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic, over the alleged falsification of his passport. This came days after the Department of State Services (DSS) ransacked his residence in Ibadan and subsequently declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling weapons in his residence.

The agitator was detained in prison in the Benin Republic but was released in March 2022 to get medical attention on the condition that he would not leave the West African country.
