The Government of the Republic of Benin has extended the detention of the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho by six months.
This was disclosed by Igboho’s counsel, Chief Yomi Aliyyu, in a statement made available to the media.
Aliyyu however argued that the detention of the Yoruba Nation agitator violates his fundamental rights and freedom.
This is coming a few days after Agbekoya Farmers Society of Nigeria threatens it would deploy magical power to free Sunday Igboho if the government of Benin Republic continue to hold him illegally.
In protest of the extended jail term for Sunday Igboho, his cousel 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.
“After six months in detention, the prosecutor has extended the arrest warrant of leader, Sunday Igboho for another six months. The leader of the emancipation of the Yoruba people in Nigeria is thus kept in the bonds of detention while his file is empty.”
“His only misfortune is to have chosen Benin as a transit country to go to Germany. Prosecuted in Nigeria for his political activities.”
Sunday Igboho was arrested last year while fleeing to Germany via Benin Republic.
