Igboho’s Arrest: The Benin Republic May Reject Extradition To Nigeria

Sunday Adeyemo better known as Sunday Igboho, the Benin Republic may block the extradition of arrested Yoruba Nation agitator to Nigeria.

Anaedoonline.ng gathered that Sunday Igboho was arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night while trying to flee to Germany.

Professor Emeritus Banji Akintoye, the leader of the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), confirmed to The Nation, Yoruba Patriots are working hard to assist Ighoho towards preventing his extradition to Nigeria because “The Benin Republic is a land that respects the rules of law”.

He called on all Yoruba people within and beyond the shores of Nigeria to ensure their ancestral land is not defeated by invaders.

“I received last night the troubling information that Chief Sunday Adeyemo fondly called Igboho had been arrested at the Cotonou Airport.

“I and other Yoruba Patriots who are immediately available are now working to provide the assistance necessary to ensure that nobody will be able to do to him anything unlawful or primitive and to prevent him from being extradited into Nigeria which is strongly possible.

“Fortunately, Benin Republic is reliably a land of law where the authorities responsibly obey the law. We have secured the services of a leading and highly respected lawyer whom we can confidently rely on.

“What the situation now calls for is that the Yoruba nation at home and in Diaspora must stand strong, resolved that neither Sunday Igboho nor any other Yoruba person will henceforth be subjected to the inhuman or dehumanizing treatment of any kind.

“We Yoruba nation is, by the grace of God, a very strong nation. We must arise now to show that strength.

“For a start, we must all see to it now that Sunday Ighoho will get his freedom back so as to be able to move and operate as a free person. We all know he has committed no crime.”

He added: “We know that some people are trying to suppress or even eliminate him only because he stood up to defend his kinsmen, women, and children who are being massively killed and raped in their ancestral home Land; who are having their assets and means of livelihood destroyed, and who are facing ethnic cleansing and even genocide without having the benefit of protection by the rulers of their country.

“We know, furthermore, that for the protection of his people who are being brutalized, he has joined hands with many of his brethren to take the legally appropriate step, namely to seek the intervention of the International Criminal Court.”
