Aliyu who spoke during ‘Frank Talk’ a radio talk programme on Rave FM, noted that of the brothers of the Yoruba Nation who was travelling with him before he was arrested was the one bundled into the plane heading to Germany, not Sunday.
He said: “As aoftoday (Wednesday) Sunday Igboho is still in police detention in the Benin Republic, specifically in Cotonou.
“While they were fighting with the brother, he was bundled back into the plane heading to Germany; he was the one in Germany now, not Igboho.
“He was already in the plane in Cotonou on his way to Germany with his wife and his brother was there too. Somebody fingered him out that he is a wanted person.
“He was brought down with the wife and brother and a fracas ensued because he was to be flown to Nigeria by a standby helicopter.
“But the wife and the brother put up a fight and started shouting at the airport, which attracted some other Yoruba indigenes and they came to their rescue.”
