UPDATED: Sunday Igboho to remain in Detention in Benin Republic

Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popular known as Sunday Igboho has been returned to detention by the Cour De’Appel De Cotonou pending further investigation.

The activist was returned to cell after a 13-hour hearing, which ended around 11:20 pm on Monday.

The case was heard behind closed doors as the court limited attendance to lawyers, Igboho’s wife, Ropo, and a few others.

Journalists and Igboho’s supporters who thronged the court in their large numbers were denied access.

Igboho and his wife were arrested on Monday, July 19, 2021, by the International Criminal Police Organisation at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Republic of Benin on their way to Germany.

Nigerian authorities want Igboho repatriated. He is accused of stockpiling weapons and threatening the federal government and security agencies.
