Breaking: Yoruba Nation Agitator Sunday Igboho Arrives Court De’appal De Cotonou Ahead Of Trial
Yoruba Nation activist, 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.
A source that spoke with SaharaReporters on Wednesday said, “Igboho may be arraigned for passport-related offences in the Benin Republic tomorrow. His Nigerian lawyers are here already. Yoruba leaders in the Benin Republic have been supportive as well.”
It was gathered that the Yoruba Nation agitator was accused of illegally owning a passport of the Benin Republic.
Recall that Igboho was arrested at Cardinal Bernardin International Airport, Cotonou, Republic of Benin, with his wife on their way to Germany on Monday night.
Igboho had been declared wanted by the Department of State Services in July after the secret police attacked his residence in Ibadan.
Some Yoruba people resident in and around Cotonou on Thursday matched to the court ahead of Igboho’s trial.
They called for Igboho not to be returned to the country, saying that he had committed no offence.
