Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has assured leaders of the Southwest are working to ensure the release of Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic last Monday on his way to Germany.
He is currently facing trial in a Benin Court on his possible extradition to Nigeria.
Sanwo-Olu, who spoke shortly after casting his vote in Eti-Osa council, said prominent persons in the Southwest are working behind the scenes to ensure Igboho’s release but governors of the region would not be able to explain such moves to the public.
He said: “People are working behind the scenes but the matter doesn’t have to be a public conversation.
‘’These are very difficult times for all of us, but I can assure you that people are working behind the scenes. In times like this, it’s not by how many press people you call.”
