However, the rally will be different from others held before.

It will be to show solidarity with Igboho now languishing in a Benin Republic prison after an aborted bid to escape to Germany.

Igboho wanted to escape following the raid of his home in Ibadan by EFCC operatives.

Two persons were killed in the raid on 1 July.

Twelve others were arrested and taken to Abuja. Ten of them have been freed after legal efforts by lawyers.

The EFCC has however charged the remaining two with terrorism, with the only woman arrested charged with ‘Facebook terrorism’.

Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, hinted about the rally in a video post on Facebook, according to TheNation.

Koiki said: “Yoruba Nation Rally will be happening in the town of our Father Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho Oosa – Date: 11th of September 2021 – Time: 10:00am Host: Gbogbo Omo Yoruba Agbaye.”

After his arrest at Cotonou airport, Igboho, real name Sunday Adeyemo, was first detained at the Brigade économique et financière (BEF).
