Sunday Igboho has been conferred with an honorary doctorate by Triune Biblical University, USA.
Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, on November 1, bagged a doctorate degree in Peace and Security Management/International Relations from Triune Biblical University, USA.
Newsonline reports that the activist was presented with the award of doctor of peace and security management/international relations with specialisation in war/conflict and peace studies, Tribune reports.
The leader of Yoruba Nation agitators was seen in an academic gown along with some elders who are probably of Yoruba origins, according to a photo story shared by the Nigerian Tribune.
The development is coming amid treason charges levied against him by the federal government.
Recall, in July 2021, the Department of State Services (DSS) launched a manhunt for Sunday Igboho, who had demanded independence for the Yoruba people following violence he attributed to Fulani herders in his region.
The DSS officials claimed they found military equipment and other weapons at the house. They also accused Igboho and his associates of planning to wage a violent insurrection against Nigeria.
He was later arrested in Benin while attempting to board a flight to Germany. But was later released from health ground. However, the Beninese government is yet to expatriate him to Nigeria.
Sunday recently while wishing the Olugbon of Orile-Igbon, a king in Yoruba land, vowed not to back off from the struggles for the independence of the Yoruba Nation, despite his travails.
