Benin Republic extends Igboho’s detention by 6 months after Yoruba group vowed to free him


Igboho's lawyer says his client would approach the court of the Economic Community of West African States to challenge the extension of his detention.

The Government of the Republic of Benin has extended the detention of the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo better known as Sunday Igboho by six months.

Igboho’s counsel, Chief Yomi Aliyyu disclosed this to Punch on Sunday, February 6, 2022.

Aliyyu said the country renewed Igboho’s detention despite that there was no criminal charge against him and no extradition request from the Nigerian Government.

The lawyer said, “Contrary to what was speculated in the news by a lawyer, the government of the Republic de Benin has renewed the incarceration of Chief Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Igboho Oosa for another six months even though there is no criminal charge in their file in Cotonou and without extradition request from Nigeria.”
