Benin Republic Court declines Sunday Igboho’s extradition; remands him in prison

Sunday Igboho

After a 13-hour hearing, Cour De’Appel De Cotonou ruled that Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, be remanded in prison custody pending further investigation.

The hearing ended around 11:20 pm on Monday, July 26, and Igboho was returned to his cell.

The court, however, refused the extradition of Igboho to Nigeria.

The court, which was expected to start hearing the case at 10:00am, barred reporters and supporters of Igboho who besieged the premises. The hearing eventually commenced at about 5:00pm and it was heard behind closed doors as the court limited attendance to lawyers, Igboho’s wife Ropo, and a few others.
