Ex-Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai (rtd) played a part in foiling the escape of Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho.

The Yoruba agitator and his wife, Ropo, were on their way to Germany through Benin Republic when they were stopped Monday night. Igboho was on July 1 declared wanted by the Department of State Services (DSS) after his Soka residence in Ibadan was breached.

After the raid that claimed the lives of two associates, the DSS exhibited guns, bullets and other weapons recovered.

On July 9, Igboho, then in hiding, was placed on stop-list following intelligence about his plans to flee Nigeria.

Press reported that but wanted to catch him without another bloody operation.

By the time Igboho took possession of doctored passport, the federal government got the information and increased surveillance.
