An extradition hearing will be held today for Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho by the Beninoise authorities.
According to close sources, Igboho is currently held by operatives of Brigade Criminelle in Cotonou after being arrested on Monday night alongside his wife, Ropo, while attempting to fly to Germany.
The court hearing scheduled for Wednesday failed to hold as the self-acclaimed freedom fighter was not brought to Court for the hearing by the Beninoise authorities. According to the latest information, the hearing holds by 10 am today at a Beninoise Court.
This was also confirmed by Igboho’s spokesperson, Olayomi Koiki, in a live update early this morning.
“I can confirm, he will have the opportunity to be heard at the Benin Republic Court. They respect international law. It will be held today (Thursday) by God’s grace.
“The sitting will be held at 10 am in the morning at the Benin Republic Court. The court will determine the fate of the extradition and we’ll also have the opportunity to present our case especially on the personality of Igboho.
“We know the magnitude of what the Nigerian government is trying to do if they try to get hold of Igboho but they will fail, by God’s grace. Their intention was to capture him (Igboho), but God fought for him,” he said.
