Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho, has received an honorary doctorate degree from Triune Biblical University based in Brooklyn, New York, the United States.
Igboho, who shared the certificate and a series of pictures from the event on his Instagram page on Tuesday, wrote: “Congratulations to me as I was conferred Doctor of Peace and Security Management/International Relations with specialisation 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”, he added.
Recall that in July, Igboho was arrested in Cotonou, Benin Republic for the alleged falsification of his passport.
Prior to his arrest, the Department of State Services (DSS) had declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling weapons in his residence.
The secession agitator was detained in a 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.
In the meantime, some of those present to witness the occasion include Banji Akintoye, leader of the Yoruba self-determination movement; Banji Ayiloge, vice chairman of the Yoruba self-determination movement; Wale Adeniran, vice chairman of Ilana Omo Odua, and Titi Aboyade Cole, the Publicity Director of YSDM.
