Foremost Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho has arrived at the Cour De’appal De Cotonou, ahead of his arraignment by the authorities of Benin Republic for immigration-related offences.
The West African country had accused Sunday Igboho of illegally owning its passport.
Sunday Igboho was arrested at Cardinal Bernardin International Airport, Cotonou, Republic of Benin, with his wife on their way to Germany on Monday night.
He was declared wanted by the Department of State Services earlier in July after his Ibadan house in Oyo state was raided on July 1, 2021, by the operatives of the secret police.
Recall that SaharaReporters had said that the embattled self-actualisation and freedom fighter might be arraigned for passport-related offences in Benin Republic tomorrow.
“His Nigerian lawyers are here already. Yoruba leaders in the Benin Republic have been supportive as well,” a source had told the platform, on Wednesday night.
SaharaReporters gathered that some Yoruba living in and around Cotonou on Thursday thronged the court awaiting the commencement of the trial.
They demanded that Sunday Igboho should not be returned to Nigeria, saying that he had committed no offence
