Igboho’s plight worsens as Benin Republic extends his detention by six months

The Republic of Benin authorities have extended the detention of self-acclaimed activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, by six months.

The Republic of Benin authorities have extended the detention of self-acclaimed activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, by six months.

According to PUNCH, Chief Yomi Aliyyu, Igboho’s counsel, disclosed this on Sunday night.

Aliyyu was quoted to have said Benin Republic renewed Ignoho’s incarceration despite that there was no criminal charge against him and no extradition request from the Nigerian Government.

He 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.”

Asked if his client would take any step to challenge the extension of his detention, Aliyyu said he would approach the court of the Economic Community of West African States.

“We will approach the ECOWAS Court which they never obeyed,” he added.

Igboho was nabbed in the neighbouring African country while attempting to escape to Germany after a raid on his Ibadan, Oyo State, residence by the Department of State Service (DSS).

DSS had raided his residence on July 1, 2021 but he was arrested on July 19 together with his wife, Ropo, who was later released.
