Igboho arrives Cotonou court for trial



Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, Thursday arrived with his wife and lawyers at the Cour De’appal De Cotonou, ahead of his arraignment by the authorities of Benin Republic for immigration-related offences.

According to reports, some Yoruba leaders living in and around Cotonou on Thursday thronged the court awaiting the commencement of the trial, demanding that Igboho should not be returned to Nigeria, stating that he had committed no offence.

Recall that Igboho was arrested at Cardinal Bernard in 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 (DSS) in July after his house in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital was raided on July 1, 2021, by the operatives of the secret police.

Two people were killed by the DSS in the late-night raid while 12 other persons were arrested and later paraded in Abuja.
